December 13, 2013, South Coast Martial Arts/Boxing Center, Costa Mesa.

Mark came away as the winner over Jerret Jeter of DG Boxing in Long BeachMark trains at UFC Gym in Aliso Viejo.

These are action packed matches between guys who come into the ring in top physical condition and go at it full speed for three rounds.

The Southern California Association of Boxing pairs the contenders based on experience. It was Mark’s fourth amateur fight and his opponent’s ninth and they appeared evenly matched.  Jerret Jeter was tough inside and was able to land some hard combinations with both hands.  Midway through the first round Jeter threw a quick left that connected solidly to Mark’s jaw knocking him back on his heels.  Mark, however, trains with and trades punches with bigger and more experienced ranked sparing partners and was able to absorb Jeter’s punches in stride.

Mark’s style might be termed “relentless” giving neither fighter time to catch their breath.  It appeared that Mark displayed superior boxing skills, particularly with his combinations.  At times he was able to put his opponent on the defensive where Jeter would cover up while taking body and head shots.  Both boxers displayed talent and aggressiveness but in the end Mark showed a bit more movement and speed allowing him to land more punches.

Mark has studied Muay Thai and currently practices Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is an instructor teaching individual and group boxing lessons at UFC Gym, Aliso Viejo where he trains.  He is also a college student working toward a degree in kinesiology.
