DISASTER, or more specifically Michael Hunter struck Martin Bakole at London’s York Hall on Saturday night.

Bakole is a highly touted prospect who has been sparring unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. He was expected to take the step up against Hunter in London but the American, a world class cruiserweight who went the distance with Oleksandr Usyk and competed at the London Olympic Games, was too much for him.

A heavy handed puncher from the Congo, Bakole shook Hunter up with his power. But he was far too open, Hunter moved well and caught Martin far too frequently with shots to the head.
