“Bukom Banku’s Defeat Was Caused By The Fermented Corn Dough Which Was Used For The Banku He Ate Before The Fight” Coach
Saturday Night was one that had a lot of people surprised as Barima Kamoko, a.k.a. Bukom Banku lost a fight for the first time in his entire career.
Banku was stopped in the seventh round (exactly the number of balls of banku he ate before the bout) by Basti Samir.
When asked on Sunday morning what the team made of Banku’s defeat, his coach said
“I have nothing much to say. You see, before Barima enters any fight, he takes banku. He always wins in the round that represents the number of balls he takes in. This time round, he took seven so we were confident that he was going to Knock Basti out. However, it was the other way round.
In our investigations, we realized that the corn dough was fermented and this made him feel dizzy while fighting.”
Later in the day, Joy FM got in touch with Bukom Banku; and this is what he had to say:
“The banku I eat, e spoil my eyes all…”
He has vowed to go for a rematch.
