I Will Kill You…Banku Tells Opponent

Light heavyweight champion Braimah Kamoko aka Bukom Banku (22,16 KOs ,O) has thrown the gauntlet, telling his Ugandan opponent, Hamza Wadera that he will not last the full distance when they cross swords in their WBO African Light Heavyweight championship tomorrow at the Accra Stadium. “You have no idea the kind of beatings I will hand you. In fact I will kill you in the ring. “This is one fight I will really go all attacking. I will harass you from start till you give up,” were Banku’s words after Wandera had declared ‘war’ on Banku in a pre-match press conference in Accra yesterday. The exchanges stirred the boxers to demonstrate glimpses of what they would do in the ring, but officials present on the High Table intervened. Wandera (14, 10KOs), based in Sweden, before Banku’s declaration stated, “I have come to ‘eat you’ like my favourite dish Banku. I am aware you have some wonderful titles, and I am here for that real deal.” On the same bill are sleek fighter Emmanuel Tagoe taking on Argentine Miguel Caceres in their Super Featherweight contest, while Josuha ‘Tsatsu’ Okine faces another Argentine Amilgah Funes in their IBF Welterweight championship.
