Akotoku Academy's Kpakpo Allotey, aka Bukom Flash, annexed the ABU lightweight title after handing Beninios Theodore Lokossou a second round technical knockout.

That was the main bout of the Obric Sala Promotions Eruption Nite staged at the Azumah Nelson Sports Complex in Accra.

Allottey who had a quiet first round resumed round two with a lot of aggression, punishing Lokossou with a barrage of left and right jabs.

After a minute and 44 seconds Allottey's intense punishment sent the Beninois onto the canvas, forcing Referee Godfried Cobblah to end the bout.

The story was no different for Charles 'Crusader' Adamu who completely demolished Aryee Hammond in a super middleweight contest.

Adamu's heavy penetrating jabs and head shots forced Hammond's corner to throw in the towel in round two.

After losing his last bout in South Africa, Attoh Quarshie Gym's Phillip 'Sweat Pea' Kotey put the smiles back on the faces of his fans when he defeated Nigerian Kola Abiola through a second round knockout.

Kotey who started the first round slowly built his attack steadily in the second round and threw a dazing upper cut that sent Abiola crushing onto the canvas.

In what looked like a complete mismatch, Brimah Kamoko, a.k.a Bukom Banku, knocked out Nigeria's Baba Tunde Lawal in the first round of a light heavyweight contest while Lartei Lartey, a.k.a Bukom Jah, reigned supreme after defeating Stephen Doglo in the sixth round of their super lightweight contest.

After a year of inactivity, Malik Jabir stunned his fans when he stopped Peter Durbur through a sixth round technical knockout.

In the only bout that travelled its full distance, George 'Red Tiger' Ashie recorded his second victory in one week when he defeated Thomas Okanja Aryeetey in a super featherweight contest.

The promising Ashie displayed a lot of skill and stamina and landed some strong body shots some of which dropped Aryeetey in the eighth round. Judges Clement Ashong, Nat Botchway and Godfried Cobblah scored the bout 80-71, 80-74 and 78-75 respectively to hand Ashie a unanimous decision.

Yakubu Amidu of the Fit Square Gym also stopped Wisdom Boxing Club's Sani Mohammed in the first round of their super featherweight contest.
