Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Kamoko popularly known as Bukom Banku has revealed his profession before becoming a boxer.
According to Bukom Banku in an interview with Abeiku Santana on UTV’s “ATUU” show, he used to be a thieve whose specialisation was in pickpocketing.
“I’m a ghetto boy. I used to go to the seashore, Kantamanto and other places to fight. I’m a street fighter. I did rough things like picking people’s money, beating people rough. So it’s the ghetto people I used to do these things with who told me that the way you have strength, you have to be a boxer so they sent me to the gym. Right now boxing has made a superstar in the nation so I’m really grateful to all ghetto people”, he disclosed.
On people labelling him as a ‘local champion’, Bukom Banku responded;
“People always talk. Banku can’t fight international fight but now their mouths have been shamed. I fight international fights and I’m going to do more fights to bring IBF to Ghana”.
