Popular boxer, Briamah Kamoko also known as Bukom Banku has reacted to his Saturday defeat after he was technically knocked out in round seven of their much publicized cruiserweight bout by Bastie “The Beast” Samir at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
Speaking with Gatuso on Aben Wo Ha Show, Banku, who tasted his first defeat said he is unfazed with the defeat and will still call Bastie to congratulate him.
According to him, he will call for re-match soon.
Banku, who had not lost any of his 29 fights, visited the canvas twice during the bout in round three and seven.
He had predicted a sixth-round stoppage but that round rather saw him come under heavy punches from Samir.
In the seventh round, Samir decided to end the bout as he unleashed several punches to the body of Banku, but the latter could not defend himself.
The referee then stepped in to save Banku but he shockingly refused to stop the fight as expected but rather gave him a mandatory eight-second count.
However, soon after he returned to action, Samir intensified his attack which left Bukom crashing to the canvas with a bloodied right eye.
He fell on his backside and hesitated in rising to his feet and when he did, the referee stepped in to save him as he was wobbly.
