Bukom Banku to retire in ‘3 years’

Defeated WBO Africa Cruiserweight boxer, Braimah Kamoko commonly known as Bukom Banku says he has three more years left as a professional boxer.

The controversial boxer who lost his unbeaten record to Bastie Samir last week has downplayed rumours that he will hang his gloves following the humiliating defeat.

The 38-year-old boxer who still harbours hopes of becoming a world champion revealed that he has three years of boxing left and called on benevolent Ghanaians to channel their investments in Bastie Samir to aid their world title bid.

“Bastie and I are currently the best boxers in the country and we have world title ambitions. So I want to tell Ghanaians to help us because we have what it takes to win world titles. I have three years more left as a boxer so I need help to fulfill my dream of becoming a world title holder”, Banku pleaded.

Meanwhile, Banku has confirmed receiving GHC50,000 as part payment of the bout purse and he is anxiously waiting for a rematch with Samir on December 6.
