Former Ghana president John Dramani Mahama has taken to social networking site Facebook to empathise with his friend and boxer Braimah Kamoko, popularly known as Bukom Banku.
Banku was humiliated by cruiserweight terror Bastie Samir after he was knocked down in round seven in their scheduled contest at the Bukom Boxing Arena on Saturday night.
While declaring the two fighters as “winners” of the night, John Mahama said he believes the Bukom Boxing Arena which he commissioned in the dying days of his administration in November 2016 will become an “incubator for the next general of Ghanaian boxing champions.”
The former president wrote:
“Great night of boxing at the Bukom Boxing Arena yesterday. The patronage, entertainment and competitive spirit fulfils the purpose for which the facility was built.
Congrats to winner Bastie and better luck next time to my friend and brother Braimah Kamoko aka Bukom Banku. Both boxers were winners last night. I’m convinced that the Bukom Arena will become the incubator for the next generation of Ghanaian boxing champions.”
John Mahama enjoyed massive support from Bukom Banku especially during the 2012 and 2016 election campaign periods.
