Kalajdzic To Browne: If You Think You Won - Give Me a Rematch!

The televised swing bout saw 2012 U.S. Olympian "Sir" Marcus Browne (18-0, 13 KOs) remained undefeated with a narrow split-decision victory over previously unbeaten Radivoje "Hot Rod" Kalajdzic (21-1, 14 KOs) in an eight-round light heavyweight contest.
 
"Establishing my jab was the key," said Browne. "Once I did that, he couldn't get past it. He got me with a couple of good shots."
 
Kalajdzic was emphatic that the judges were wrong in their decision.

"I don't see how I lost," said Kalajdzic. "I was the aggressor. I showed my heart. If he feels like he beat me, give me the rematch."
 
The southpaw Browne was able to jab his way into control of the fight by landing 52 jabs to the 54 thrown by Kalajdzic the whole fight. Browne was able to bruise and eventually open up a cut over Kalajdzic's left eye late in the fight.
 
In the first round, Browne was credited with a controversial knockdown as it appeared via replay that a slip had occurred and Browne had hit Kaladjzic after he was down.
 
Kalajdzic was effective with his power punches throughout the fight as he landed 36 percent of his power punches to 29 percent from Browne. His most effective moment came in round six when he sent Browne to the mat with a right hand.
 
"He caught me with something that grazed me," said Browne. "I didn't even know what it was. I walked into the punch but I was able to get up from it and get back in rhythm."
 
"He didn't do anything that bothered me," said Kalajdzic. "I was doing my thing. I should have listened to my coaches more and I would have stopped him."
 
Browne was able to recover for the final two rounds and earn the split-decision by scores of 76-74 for Kalajdzic, 76-74 for Browne and 76-75 again for the still unbeaten Staten Island-native.
 
"I love fighting in front of my fans and family. We gutted this one out and it's on to the next one," added Browne.
 
PBC on NBC was promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Star Boxing.

He's not giving you a rematch

The fix was in since the fight started, the ref was in it and probably the judges too. Brow will probably be fed a couple of tomato cans, but the minute he steps up, he'll be knocked out into retirement.

They should have a rematch on NBC but I think Browne's team is going to stay away from the Bosnian.
