Maderna KOs Itauma for WBC Intl belt

Light heavyweight Ezequiel Osvaldo “El Olympico” Maderna (29-10, 18 KOs) knocked out previously unbeaten prospect Karol Itauma (9-1, 7 KOs) in a clash for the vacant WBC International belt on Saturday night in London’s OVO Arena. Maderna couldn’t miss with his right hand and laid out Itauma for the count in round five. Time was 1:04.

6’7 cruiserweight Tommy Fletcher (4-0, 3 KOs) was forced to go the six round distance against 5’8 Darryl Sharp (7-97-1, 1 KO). Survival-minded Sharp taunted Fletcher the whole way in a dull fight. Score: 60-64.

Pro debuting heavyweight Moses Itauma, brother of Karol Itauma, needed just 23 seconds to annihilate Marcel Bode (2-2, 1 KO). Bode actually had his guard up and was kayoed through his gloves.

    • You’re always convinced people are quitting. I guess you missed the numerous right hands he was eating all fight. He was ready to go the round previous

  • Moses Itauma – One jab, two straight lefts and the fight was over. Looks like he has heavy hands (also seen in his amateur fights). Won’t know how much potential he really has as a pro until he is taken deeper into a fight and faces higher level opponents. Let’s see. Interesting.
