Brimah ‘Bukom Banku’ Kamoko (29-0, 22 KO’s) is set to face off Bastie Samir (15-0-1, 14 KO’s) on September 30, 2017 at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra.

The much anticipated bout would see two undefeated Ghanaian boxers contesting for the bragging right after verbal ‘jabs’ have been thrown at each other in the past years.

Samir Bastie 31, has expressed gratitude to Box Office promotions for making the bout possible.

“I thank Box Office Promotions for putting this fight together, I’m very happy that Bukom Banku has accepted my challenge.

“I’m a professional boxer just as Bukom Banku, I will not underrate him, I respect him a lot but on September 30, I will be the winner, because I have a great team behind me,” said Samir Bastie.

Meanwhile, Brimah Kamoko has said that, he is a better box than Samir Bastie and that he is ready to challenge him on the scheduled day.

“Bastie Samir challenged me three years ago and in boxing if someone challenges you, you have to find out the reason why that person is challenging you.

“Maybe the person has seen your weakness but I want Bastie Samir to know that I’m ready for him. Comparing us, I’m the better boxer and I want him to know that no matter what his efforts in the ring I will stop him in round six,” Kamoko said.

This remains one of the hottest bouts that has remained unattended to by Promoters and match makers alike due to a few difficulties regarding Banku’s contractual obligation and purses demanded by the boxers.

Until last week’s signing, Box Office had failed to convince promoters of Bukom Banku, Super Entertainment on terms for the fight, having also shown interest in the same fight that could attract boxing lovers from all corners of the country.

Banku’s controversies did not also help in the promotion of the fight and despite appending his signature to the fight contract, it is still not clear whether he did with the blessings of his promoters, Super Entertainment who are yet to comment on the new development.
