Lamptey wins WBO, WBC titles after TKO victory over Tanzania’s Kayumba

Ghanaian boxer Alfred Lamptey has defeated Tanzania’s Iddi Kayumba via a 10th round Technical Knockout at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra to win two youth titles on Saturday.

Ghanaian boxer Alfred Lamptey has defeated Tanzania’s Iddi Kayumba via a 10th round Technical Knockout at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra to win two youth titles on Saturday.

The 19-year-old has won the World Boxing Organization (WBO) youth junior lightweight and World Boxing Council (WBC) youth silver featherweight titles courtesy of the victory.

Lamptey dominated the fight from round 1 and floored the 23-year-old Tanzanian boxer in the second round but he managed to beat referee Roger Barnor’s count to get onto his feet.

Kayumba managed to keep himself in the bout up to the final round, where had to lean on the ropes to survive Lamptey’s punches.

Referee Barnor stepped in to stop the fight as Kayumba could not continue with the fight, giving the ‘Bukom Bomber’ the victory.

The Ghanaian teenager has already promised to TKO his opponent in the bout earlier last month.

“I will knock out Iddi Kayumba, so I want all the boxing fans to come early to see how I will do it. I promise to go on to win the world titles and lift high the flag of Ghana.”

Alfred Lamptey has successfully defended the titles he won in March this year after defeating George Krampah to the two titles at the same venue.

Lamptey has now extended his unbeaten run to 9 bouts, winning seven of those by way of knockout.

Also, he becomes a four-time boxing title holder having won both the West Africa Boxing Union (WABU) and Universal Boxing Organisation featherweight belts.
