HEAVYWEIGHT

WBC International Heavyweight champion Martin Bakole (17-1, 13 KOs) scored an easy first round knockout over Haruna Osumanu (12-2, 7 KOs) at the Sport Society in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Of course, the WBC International crown was NOT at stake.

Martin Bakole Ilunga, born in Congo on 1st June 1993 (based in Airdrie, Scotland), had outpointed Sergey Kuzmin in a much more credible fight to win the vacant WBC International Heavyweight title on December 12th (last year) in London.

KUZMIN     258.450 Lbs  (kgs 117.250)

BAKOLE    251.400 Lbs  (kgs 114)

A fight for the vacant belt took place in Moscow (Russia) on 27th November 2017 between Sergey Kuzmin and Amir Mansour.   The fight was stopped in round three due to an accidental clash of heads which caused severe cuts on both fighters’ eyebrows.   The title remained vacant*
