Maverick light heavyweight boxer Braimah Issah Kamoko popularly known as Bukom Banku suffered an humiliating defeat yesterday night at the Bukum Boxing arena, Accra.
Bukum Banku was knock-out in a 7th round in a cruiser-weight bout against undefeated Samir Bastie.
The bout was dubbed ‘Make or Break’ by Box Office Promotions as the two boxers had looked forward to it since 2013, when Bastir nicknamed ‘The Beast’ challenged the loudmouthed Banku.
Banku looked in danger of being stopped earlier after he fell but held on before Bastie delivered the clinical blows in the seventh round to secure the victory and maintain his enviable unbeaten record.
Bastie Samir record after the famous win reads (16-0-1, 15 KO’s).
Banku started the fight as the favourite due to his experience and won the opening 2 rounds, but Samir recovered well to win round 3 where he first floored Banku.
Samir again delivered a combination of jabs and punches in unbelievable style to daze Banku in the 7th round.
Roger Banor, the referee for the night, decided to end the misery of Banku who clearly looked out of sorts.
Banku record; (30-1, 22 KO’s).
