The Club Chicago, Burbank, Illinois, United States
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.
Karmazin, 40-5-2 (26 KOs), has been inactive since last October's knockout loss to Daniel Geale. He took time off and appeared to be retired, but returned for this title eliminator opportunity.
Adama improved his record to 20-2-0 (15 KOs).
