The final day of the African Open Tournament at the Korean Sports Complex in Tema was charged, action packed and explosive.
Jonathan ‘Karma’ Lamptey defeated Cossa Rashid in the Mix Martial Arts MMA, when the referee stopped the fight after round one. Lamptey was too good to beat Rashid in a TKO result.
In the Kickboxing, Selorm Darku who had Torado Bruce in his corner and cheer by his fans from Swalaba won against Edmund Akator.
It was a battle as both fighters fought with all their might, skill, speed and strength, but Selorm took the night with his powerful kicks, turning punches and experience.
