World rated middleweight Osumanu Adama, 30 years-old from Ghana, based in Miami, Florida, scored the biggest win of his career with a ninth round TKO over former IBF jr.middleweight champion Roman Karmazin, 38 years-old from Russia based in Los Angeles, California.
Adama, IBF #7, won the IBF 160-lbs title eliminator when wobbled “Made in Hell” Karmazin in round five with a left hook and had him going again in rounds eight and nine before Karmazin’s corner threw in the towel. Time was :0.58.
