Dan May Have Fractured His Jaw in Selcuk Aydin Defeat

By Chris LaBate

Welterweight contender Jo Jo Dan (29-2) took some punishment in his rematch with Selcuk Aydin, which took place on Saturday night in Trabzon, Turkey. Aydin (23-0), the WBC's silver champion, won a twelve round unanimous decision at a packed Spor Salonu. Dan was knocked down twice by Aydin, in the first and 11th rounds. Aydin won their first meeting 17 months, by way of a controversial split decision. This time there was little to no controversy.

After the fight was over, Dan was taken to a Trabzon hospital to get stitches to both eyes and he may have suffered a fractured jaw, according to his trainer, Pierre Bouchard.

Dan was planning to make it a very dominating fighy by outworking the champion in every round, but his workrate was lacking in a few of the rounds and left himself open to Aydin's much harder punches, which caused the two knockdowns and allowed the champion to keep the title with scores of 115-111, 113-112 and 113-112.

“I’m disappointed,” Chris Ganescu, Dan’s promoter, told The Montreal Gazette. “He didn’t follow the game plan. He came to win decisively.”

no surprise jojo looked pretty beaten at the end of the fight. if he didn't get kd in the 11th he could have pulled a majority draw, although i had aydin winning by 3 rounds...dan had better work rate but…
