Babtunde floored his foe in rounds ten and eleven, and four times in round twelve to force referee Olesegun Adesanya to wave it off at 2:58.
Rilwan Oladosu TKO8 Emmanuel Quartey... Super featherweight Rilwan Oladosu (15-0) lived up to his nickname, “Real One”, as he outclassed game Ghanaian Emmanuel Quartey with a stoppage in the eighth round. Quartey, who drops to 23-3, tried his best to get on the inside of the much taller Oladosu to land a knockout punch, but the local favorite controlled things nicely before the visitor suffered a shoulder injury and could not continue. Time of stoppage was 1:09 of round eight. Promoted by Flykite Promotions, the WBF doubleheader was broadcast live by GOTV Nigeria and SuperSport. source for both results: wbf
