Boxer Braimah Kamoko also known as Bukom Banku will retire from the sport soon, he announced on Starr Chat with Bola Ray.
The former WBO Africa Cruiserweight champion says he will not go beyond age 42 with his boxing career.
Bukom Banku made an appearance on the personality talk show on Starr 103.5FM Wednesday night where he opened up on his life’s journey and the first defeat in his boxing career to Bastie Samir last weekend.
The local champion, who is adamant he should be given a rematch preferably in March next year, revealed he will call time on boxing and concentrate on his music career.
“I will be retiring when I’m 42 years old. Now, I’m 38 so I have four years more,” Bukom Banku told host Bola Ray.
He went on to appeal for investment into the sport in the country.
“Here in Ghana, boxing does not pay well. There is no money, we need support. I live in a one bedroom apartment with my wife and kids. My rent is due in February next year but there’s no money.
“We need sponsors so that we can fight more to be world champions.
“… I agreed to be paid GH¢50,000 for the fight with Bastie but I received half for my preparations.
Bukom Banku who appeared on the show together with Bastie Samir severally begged for a rematch.
“Yes, Bastie is a winner and a good fighter. I accept my defeat but I want a rematch. I beg my junior brother to give me another fight,” he said.
