Bukom Banku

Popular Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Kamoko, (31-1 23 KOs) stopped his opponent, Rojhat Bilgetekin (10-18 9 KOs) to win his first-ever fight outside Ghana.

Bukom Banku, as he is affectionately called in Ghana, dropped the German in round three at St. George Hall in Bradford, UK, on Saturday night. 

Banku was billed to fight Ferenc Albert but the Hungarian boxer pulled out at the last minute.

The organisers replaced him with Bilgetekin.

The self-acclaimed “African Mayweather” has lost only once to Bastie Samir in a bout at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Ghana.

The tough-talking boxer is expected to tour other parts of Europe before returning home.

The Ghanaian cruiserweight boxer and the current WBO African champion, has promised to establish himself as one of Africa’s best boxers before hanging his gloves.
