Dunn Loses In Australia

the Powerade Center in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
This was the first fight under the Star Boxing banner for
Marc after being off from the ring for almost 2 years. The
rust factor was not apparent as Marc roared out from the
opening bell landing heavy combinations to his game opponent
much to the delight of the large contingent of fans that
supported Marc in his comeback fight. Marc continued his
assault on Villamar throughout the fight finally forcing the
referee to call a halt to the action at the 2:49 mark of

am very pleased that Marc returned to action with such a
dominant victory over this tough fighter from Mexico. Marc
is a very talented fighter who has a huge following in his
native Canada and I expect nothing but exciting things from
Marc in the future".
