Bukom Banku set for groundbreaking return in June

Ghana’s Braimah ‘Bukom Banku’ Kamoko (29-0, 22 KO’s) is set to make a ground breaking return into the ring in June this year, according boxing promoter Michael Nii Yaaboi Annan.

The undefeated cruizerweight has been out of the four square for over a year following his round 8 KO win over his old foe Ayitey Powers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

“I know very soon, you will hear something about Bukom Banku. There is a fight which is coming up and when things are done Bukom Banku will return to the ring again soon,” Annan told Accra-based Onua FM.

“The opponent is also strong and it is brewing in the community (Bukom) but these are some of the things. We keep these things in the community, we don’t project it”, he added.

Former Olympian Bastie Samir has been tipped as Banku’s next opponent, and Annan says:

“We know him [Bastie] to be strong. Everyone believes he is the one to beat Bukom Bankum so we are all waiting”
