Shock as Tete loses world title by knockout: 'We don't know what happened'
Zolani Tete's team was still dumbfounded after his shocking stoppage loss to Johnriel Casimero at Arena Birmingham in England on Saturday.
Entering the fight as a 3: 1 favourite‚ Tete was bundled to the canvas three times in the third round to surrender his WBO world bantamweight crown in what has been described as a huge upset by international boxing publications.
After his defeat he was rushed to hospital for observation but was later discharged.
“We do not know what happened‚” said his crestfallen manager Mla Tengimfene.
“This is still like a bad dream to us but we congratulate Casimero for the win.”
“The good news is that Zolani is back in his hotel room after he was taken to hospital as a precaution.”
