"I would like to thank all of the fans for your support! The cut was a nasty one, but I’m fine now, alhamdulillah. Congrats to Marcus Browne who fought a great fight," Jack stated.

"Regardless of the cut he was the better man tonight. I am a warrior and will never quit, but didn’t realise the severity of the gash.

"I dedicated this fight to the refugee children across the world who fight a much tougher fight than I did tonight. I will continue to fight for them until the end."
