Markes broke hand in 1st round vs. Simpson

February 16, 2012

You seem to be unsatisfied about your performance. What happened?

What happened was that on that first streak I broke my hand. Then it was really hard for me, because when I held him my hand was really hurt and I couldn’t do much.

Did it disturb your game plan?

Absolutely. The entire fight my hand was aching, but I got the win anyway. I guess it influenced a lot. It was a God’s blessing I made it through until the end with my hand like this.

He knocked you down on the first round. Did it really get to you?
