Ghana’s Alfred ‘Bukom Bomber’ Lamptey is the new WBO youth junior lightweight and WBC youth silver super featherweight champion of the world after seeing off Iddi Kayumba of Tanzania in dominant fashion at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra on Saturday night.
The 19 year old virtually won every round, sending Kayumba to the canvas in the second round and continuously pummeled the Tanzanian all night long, even though to the credit of Kayumba he refused to cave in.
Until the very final round when Lamptey decided to go all out, unleashing one hefty punch after another without a break so much the endlessly retreating Kayumba was cluttered unto the ropes where the pummeling continued until referee Roger Barnor had seen enough to intervene and waive off the fight.
It means the teenage sensation who turned pro only last year has now won four different belts in two straight fights following his annexation of both the West Africa Boxing Union (WABU) and Universal Boxing Organisation(UBO) featherweight belts by defeating experienced countryman, George Krampah at the same Bukom Boxing Arena back in March this year.
Young Lamptey improves to 9-0, 7 KOs and marches on in his quest to follow in the footsteps of his legendary predecessors by winning a world championship.
Below are some photos from the ring after Lamptey’s coronation as double youth world champ:
