Cash For Banku, Powers’ Preparation

banku and powersAyitey Powers and Baimah Kamoko alias Bukom Banku  have been handed gh¢ 2,000 each for their preparations.

The two will meet on Friday 25th April, 2014 at the Accra Sports Stadium.

According to the promoter, Alexander Ntiamoah-Boakye, there is a handsome reward for the winner and prayed for a good day and a good fight. He assured boxing fans of other interesting supporting bouts, with massive entertainment.

“Certainly we shall see some of the nation’s film stars and musicians, even top professional footballers will grace the day. All we want is for the media to hype the fight” he added.

During the signing, Bukom Banku showed some maturity as he ordered his fans not to insult Ayitey Powers because he is his friend and has fed him in the past when they were amateurs.

This statement provoked Powers to explode and asked when and how can he stoop so low to be fed by Banku.

Then when it got to the time to sign, Bukom asked Powers if he could read the contract and spell CONGRATULATION, Powers got furious and said he is more and better educated so Bukom should rather read the contract to the hearing of everybody, which Bukom did and there was applause.

Both fighters have predicted a knock out victory. Bukom Banku said Powers will go done or retire in the seventh round, whilst the Australia trained and highly inspired T.B. Joshua faithful, Powers pointed that the bout will be over in round five.

*Boxer Michael Barnor has vowed to take advantage of his date on March 15 when he stands the chance of winning a version of world title in the United Kingdom on a night of boxing featuring four other boxers from Ghana.

Barnor is billed to face British boxer, Jamie Speight for the World Boxing Union (WBU) Super Bantamweight championship at the Bournemouth International Centre, Exeter Road, Bournemouth, Dorset under the promotion of Kingfisher Matchmaker Ltd.

According to the Ghanaian, he could not have got any better opportunity to achieve his lifelong dream of becoming a world champion. Barnor has therefore sworn to silence Speight who apparently has been talking very loudly.

“I’ve heard all about what Speight has been saying on social media and all. I want him to be told that I have friends who keep me informed of all that he has been saying. I am prepared for everything he will throw at me in the ring. This is a chance I have been praying for all my life so I’m focused and determined to win. Nothing can intimidate me,” Barnor told www.sportsinghana.com in aninterview.

On the same bill, three other Ghanaians, Ibrahim Labaran, Emmanuel Clottey and Philip Kotey are all also scheduled for world title shots with a fifth, Michael Ansah also featuring on the bill.

Labaran fights Gareth Hogg for the WBU Light Heavyweight title, Emmanuel Clottey, senior brother of former world champion, Joshua Clottey faces Ryan Barrett for WBU Welterweight belt, Kotey contests Scott Dixon for WBU Super Middleweight title whilst Ansah battles Iain Weaver in a 10 round international contest.

Barnor is expected to leave Accra for London on 12th March with his trainer, Samuel Annan and manager, Prince Tuffour and return back home on the 17th March, with as he promises the world title in tow.

“I’m promising all Ghanaians that I’m going to bring the title to Ghana. All I want them to do is to pray for me and come to the airport on 17thMarch to welcome me back with the title,” Michael Barnor pledged.
