Ghanaian cruiserweight boxer wants to be world champion


Kumasi, Dec. 28, GNA – Former WBO Africa Cruiserweight and Lightweight champion, Braimah ‘Bukom Banku’ Kamoko, has signalled his readiness to claim a world title.

‘I have been dreaming to become a world champion all these years, and I believe the time is now,’ he told a post-match conference after defeating Michael Ayittey ‘Powers’ in a non-title cruiserweight bout at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi on Sunday.

The win takes the 37-year old Ghanaian professional boxer’s career record to 27-0-0 with 20 technical knock-outs.

He took home GH¢100, 000, a SUV Range Rover and a ticket for a trip to South Africa.

Kamoko accused his opponents, particularly the rated international cruiserweight boxers of deliberately avoiding him.

‘They are afraid to face me for fear of losing their titles,’ he said.

The undefeated boxer insisted that he had what it takes to become a world champion, and appealed to corporate bodies to be supportive of his course.

Kamoko dismissed rumours that he intended to bring his boxing career to an end.

‘I have six more years to call it quit and could even go further all things being equal,’ he noted.
