SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT

OHARA DAVIES  (18-1-0, 14 – UK – aged 26)destroyed WBC International defending champion Paul Kamanga in two rounds to become the new title holder.   The powerful Hackney man secured a stunning second-round stoppage win against the defending champ to lift the crowd to their feet.

Not only did Davies bag the WBC international Silver super-lightweight.   The powerful Hackney man secured a stunning second-round stoppage win against the defending champ to lift the crowd to their feet.    Davies used the first round to work out his angles with the awkward looking Kamanga.   Adopting a back-foot stance and firing out a left jab, there wasn’t much between the two, but Davies’ more measured style would have caught the judges’ eyes.   By the second round it was all over and we had a new belt-holder.   Kamanga was starting to feel just how power Davies had – but continued to want to try and trade.

Paul Kamanga was stopped in the second round

Leaving himself wide open, Davies landed a huge right that wiped out Kamanga who  couldn’t beat the referee’s count just over two minutes in.
