Osei Bonsu scores TKO

Jackson Osei Bonsu made his debut in Britain with the promise of a second round knockout, a left to the body put fellow Belgian Bediouri down in the corner right at the end of the first round, the bell sounded as the count began and Bediouri rose at six but referee Seamus Dunne amazingly stopped the fight much to the disgust the crowd at York Hall, Bethnal Green, England Jackson Osei Bonsu made his debut in Britain with the promise of a second round knockout, a left to the body put fellow Belgian Bediouri down in the corner right at the end of the first round, the bell sounded as the count began and Bediouri rose at six but referee Seamus Dunne amazingly stopped the fight much to the disgust the crowd, Bonsu was not happy as he was looking forward to putting on a show for the London fight fans and his trainer joked that he had not told him to throw a punch to the body.

Bonsu who boosts a record of 21(19)-1 and came to the ring carrying two union jacks said "The bell had gone to end the round I can't understand why the referee stopped the fight, it certainly wasn't a big shot that finished him. I was looking forward to knocking him out properly in the second round as I had predicted and showing some more of my skills to the British fight fans.”

Bediouri who took prospect John O'Donnell the full six rounds in Dublin a couple of weeks back never looked in the fight against top-prospect Bonsu who is rated number three by the EBU.

Exciting times are ahead for Bonsu who certainly give our top welterweights a run for their money; he's now going to apply for a British licence and is a welcome addition to the British game.

"I'm looking for a title shot before the end of 2006, either a European title shot or a World title shot of some form, I have been waiting long enough the time is right for me now."

"I spared with Ricky Hatton last year and if he moves up to welterweight I would really love a shot at him" said Bonsu who will certainly make a lot of friends over here with his laid back attitude and confident approach to boxing.
