STE Mac continued the steady start to his professional career with a win over Julius Rafael.

The Woodlands middleweight was looking to build on his unremarkable debut win earlier this year and did just that with an intelligent performance to neuter his Solvakian foe.

Mac came out with welcome aggression from the first bell and worked the jab really well, ensuring a relatively easy time.

The upper cut proved a superb weapon for the former military man and found its way through Rafael’s guard with regularity.

Rafael looked to unsettled Mac by goading him on and gesticulating wildly.

But a couple more uppercuts put an end to the showboating.

Mac’s professionalism continued into the final round, helping him to a 40-36 points win.
