Boxing shows around the world can often throw up all sorts of unusual goings on, but this might take it to another level.
Hassan Mwakinyo recorded a first round knockout win over fellow African Six Bruno in Tanzania last year. How it happened is just about as bizarre as it comes.
Incredible video from Tanzania. This is Eggington's opponent Saturday, UK, Khan undercard. Hassan Mwakinyo, fighting on a hardwood floor canvas, knocks out Six Bruno while ref waves the fight off. Who is the ref waving to? Crowd loved the sucker punch. https://t.co/dwcfu7nmGV

Quite what the referee and event organisers were thinking is completely beyond us. The shocking footage is as hilarious as it is awful.
Mwakinyo features as an opponent for British light-middleweight Sam Eggington in Birmingham this weekend, on the undercard of Amir Khan’s latest outing.
