I want to win a World Title-Bukom Banku

WBO Africa Light heavyweight champion Braimah Kamoko, popularly known as Bukom Banku continues his search for major world title glory after going undefeated in 26 fights.

The 32 year old earned a seventh round technical knockout over Georgian George Tevdorashvili in a non-title international cruiser weight contest last Friday in Accra.

This moves the Ghanaian who currently holds the World Professional Boxing Federation Light heavyweight Belt to 26 fights, undefeated, with 20 knockouts.

But he is yet to land a major world title fight and he told journalists after his fight on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium “I trained very hard to come and win this fight. When I saw the guy’s (George Tevdorashvili) fights, I realized he is a very good boxer so I had to prepare very well. He has very heavy blows and he is very swift jabs with a lot of experience. I had to watch my guard very well because I knew he could knock me out. But he was clinching too many times.”

Braimah “Bukom Banku” Kamoko also entreated Ghanaians to “pray for me to become a world champion” because “that is my dream”.
