Badou Jack didn’t get the rematch he wanted tonight, but leaves Miami with a win, stopping Dervin Colina in the fourth round of what wound up a mismatch on the Mayweather-Paul undercard.

Jack (24-3-3, 14 KO) dominated a sloppy fight, at least what was there to dominate, putting Colina (15-1, 13 KO) down three times in the fourth round to secure the stoppage win.

Colina, a 33-year-old Venezuelan with an empty record coming in, had no success of note in the fight, and was docked a point in both the second and third rounds for excessive holding. He just couldn’t do much with Jack, having come in on short notice to replace Jean Pascal, who tested positive for four performance-enhancing drugs this week.

“The game plan was just — I’m a way better boxer than him, so out-box him and everything else will come,” Jack said. “But we’ve got to give him respect, he came out to fight.”

Jack, 37, says he has a goal to become a three-division champion, and is possibly planning to move up to cruiserweight going forward.
