Boxing: Bukom Banku enters Bukom as a Hero after his 1st professional loss to Bastie Samir


Braimah “Bukom Banku” Kamoko may have suffered an embarrassing loss to Bastie “The Beast” Samir on Saturday night but that did not prevent his fans from massing up to welcome him back to Bukom on Sunday.




Banku was stopped in the seventh-round by Samir after receiving punishing punches and visiting the canvas twice on Sunday. Incidentally, that was the first loss of his career and the first blemish on his 30-fight professional career.

Shortly, after referee Frederick Ghartey saved him from further punishment, he swiftly departed the ring without granting a post-fight interview.

However, less than 24 hours later the tough-talking boxer found his voice telling his fans that Bastie cannot stand him to rapturous applause.

He was also doused with powder as he walked the streets – a practice usually performed on victors in Ghana.
