Kenyan professional boxer Rayton Okwiri defeated Ugandan John Sernjogu during the Millennium fight in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Competing in middle weight, Boom Boom, as Okwiri is popularly called, won his 8th consecutive victory in the 8th of a scheduled 10-round non-title battle.
Then came the end in the eighth round. Okwiri piled on pressure on the Ugandan who hardly shook the Kenyan as he continued showering him with neat left and rights to the face.
A screaming left cross towards the end of the 8th round landed on his face, backing Serunjogi to the ropes and he almost made another visit to the canvas.
In the main heavyweight fight of the night, Congo’s South Africa-based Ardi Ndembo KO’d Zimbabwe’s Vincent Muziri in the third round to clinch ABU regional title.
