“There was a foul I had noticed, and you could see me trying to tell the fighters to stop. But because they were so much vigorous, they could not hear my instructions and that’s why I moved closer to them,” he narrated his story on NBS Sport.
“But before I could complete the word ‘STOP’, I was just punched and automatically I got a concussion.
“It was an upper cut and it landed on my weakest spot, and it caught me unaware I had to go down.
“The next thing I was already taken out of the ring.”
