Gambian boxer Badou Jack insists he draws only inspiration from the nasty cut he suffered against Marcus Browne.

36-year-old Jack lost to his opponent on 117–110, 116–111 and 119–108 in the seventh round in what was a one way traffic.

Badou ended up sustaining a deep cut that needed ten stitches culminating from a clash of heads around the sixth round of the duel.

Badou still pocketed a whopping D25,572,761 dalasis on that night.
