the Tanzanian upped his game in the subsequent rounds to rain the “Ukrainian bombs” on defenceless Wanyonyi, who barely survived through the fourth and fifth rounds.

Verbose Tanzanian Karim “Mtu Kazi” Mandonga put his money where his mouth was, defeating Kenya’s Daniel Wanyonyi in a non-title super middleweight title fight at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre on Saturday night.

Wanyonyi, the former Africa Boxing Union (ABU) champion, remained seated at his corner when the sixth round bell sounded forcing the bout referee Julius Odhiambo to declare Mandonga the winner on technical knockout.

After an evenly contested first two rounds, the Tanzanian upped his game in the subsequent rounds to rain the “Ukrainian bombs” on defenceless Wanyonyi, who barely survived through the fourth and fifth rounds.

“I told you I came here for serious business and Wanyonyi has felt the might of my explosive blows,” said Mandonga after winning the bout in a well-attended Solid Rock Promotion extravaganza.

Mandonga and Wanyonyi’s bout that was due to last for 10 rounds was upgraded as the main card at the last minute.

"I want to thank all my fans from the region and especially Kenya for their support,. I really felt home away from home and it was amazing," said Mandonga.
