Vijender delivered the knockout blow in the second round of what was supposed to be a six-round fight, leaving the reigning national West Africa Boxing Union Champion dazed.

The 36-year-old Beijing Olympics bronze medalist took only five minutes and seven seconds to dispatch the Ghanian, who had a perfect knockout record up to that point.
