Bukom Banku has won first ever match outside Ghana. He triumphed over Ferenc Albert of Hungary in his first professional fight outside Ghana.
Braimah Kamoko as he’s known in real life stopped his Hungarian opponent in the 3rd round of their bout which took place at St. George Hall in Bradford.
The historic fight was put together by Monarch Events and Promotions.
Kamoko’s last major bout was in October 2017 when he lost to rival, Bastie Samir, at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
Before the bout, Kamoko said that the fight was an opportunity to remind everyone of his skill and prowess and added that Albert would see a very short bout.

As he prepared to leave Ghana, Kamoko is quoted by Boxing Ghana to have said:
“Tell me a Ghanaian champion who has never tasted defeat before. The likes of Azumah Nelson, Joshua Clottey, Ike Quartey, Joseph Agbeko and the rest.
I have learnt alot from my defeat to Samir Bastie and hopefully I will show that on fight night in UK. Look this is my first international pro fight and I intend to make a statement.
I am going to stop him (Albert Ferenc) in round 5. This fight won’t travel far. I tell you.”
Sources close to Kamoko say that he will tour some parts of Europe before heading back to Ghana.
