Money Team member, former Olympian and super-middleweight contender Badou Jack took a setback in his career by way of first round TKO loss to 34 year old Derek Edwards Friday, February 28, 2014.

Jack, the former Swedish Boxing Federation boxer of the year, lasted little more than one minute against a fighter that had lost three of his last five fights. Actually, the stoppage came at 1:01 of the opening round. It appeared, at least to this writer, that the fight could have been easily stopped after the first knockdown Jack suffered. However, the referee allowed Jack to continue and he was knocked down again shortly thereafter.

Prior to knocking Jack out, Edwards could be seen on the broadcast attempting to time Badou's lead left jab. He would miss on the first few occasions Badou would throw it. Then, he eventually connected with the overhand right counter at 32 seconds into the fight.

Edwards threw Jack's equilibrium completely off. Jack beat the count, on severely wobbled legs, with a huge smile on his face. Edwards wasted no time getting Jack out of there. After another knockdown, Badou never made it to the full eight count when the referee stopped the contest. Like most boxers do when the referee steps in to end it, Jack protested the stoppage.

Badou had been brought along fairly well up to this point. Friday, February 28, 2014 was just not his night, as he suffered the first defeat of his career. He was expected to outbox Edwards. Edwards had other ideas.
