Someone's O had to go, as the saying goes, when World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Super Welterweight Champion Emmany Kalombo put his title on the line against fellow unbeaten Samuel Antwi at the International Convention Centre in Harare, Zimbabwe on Friday, July 13.

In one of the featured bouts of Kalakoda Promotions UK vs. Africa card televised by Kwesé Sports, South Africa-based Congolese Kalombo had little trouble with London-fighter Antwi, and retained his title for the first time with surprising ease.

Nicknamed “The General”, Kalombo took control of the fight from the first second of the first round, and landed almost at will before overwhelming Antwi in round two, hurting him with a barrage of punches and forcing referee Darryl Ribbink to wave it off at 1:35 of the stanza.

Having won the WBF title last March with an electrifying fifth round stoppage of South African Champion Nkululeko Mhlongo, the impressive victory over Antwi brought Kalombo´s professional record to 10-0 (10), while Antwi drops to 7-1 (4).

Following the fight, Kalombo called out WBF World Super Welterweight Champion Rafael Bejaran, 25-2-1 (11), from the Dominican Republic, and with his current form he can not be written off should that encounter come to fruition.
