Bukom Banku and Bastie Samir fought at the Boxing Arena in Bukom, yesterday,21st October 2017.
The two before the bout were undefeated heavyweight boxers.As some will say he “met his meeter”—Bukom Banku lost it out as he was knocked out by Bastie Samir in round 7.
Banku started the fight as the favorite due to his experience and won the opening 2 rounds, but Samir recovered well to win round 3 where he first punched Banku to the floor.
Bastie Samir again administered a combination of jabs in an unexpectable manner to daze Banku in the 7th round.
Referee Roger Banor, decided to end the grief of Banku who clearly looked out of touch.
And for the first time, Banku has lost a bout in his career.
