Popular Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Kamoko better known as Bukom Banku knocked out his Hungarian opponent, Ferenc Albert to win his first international fight outside Africa.

Banku earned the victory after dropping the Hungarian in round 3 at St George Hall in Bradford, UK on Saturday, September 7.

The self-acclaimed 'African Mayweather' who loves to inform his fans to attend his fight on time in order not to miss any action was true to his words this time by ending the fight in less than 10 minutes.

The current WBO African champion was denied a fight abroad by his former promoters because of an alleged eye problem.

Prior to the fight, Ferenc had promised to knock out Banku in round 3 but the Hungarian instead predicted doom for himself.

Since his historic defeat to Bastie Samir in 2017, Banku had always wished to find his feet back and this win definitely came at the right time.
