Brimah Kamako, popularly known as Bukom Banku, will not see any boxing action in Ghana until further notice. This is as a result of the withdrawal of his pro-license by the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) on a case of breach of contract.
The decision was taken Thursday, November 7 at a meeting of the Disciplinary Committee meeting of the GBA.
Bukom Banku failed to honour a contract he had with Box Office Promotions for a rematch with Bastie Samir who handed him his first defeat.
A source confirmed that the GBA’s Disciplinary Committee suspended the boxer’s license following a round of hearings which concluded that the former African light heavyweight champion had breached his contract with Box Office Promotions.
Bukom Banku has also been ordered to pay an amount of GH¢17,000.00 to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Box Office Promotions, Alex Ntiamoah who had paid the said amount as part of the boxers training allowance and purse.
The Box Office Promotions CEO has also been granted special permission to seek relief from the courts if the boxer fails to pay the amount owed. The Promoter – Alex Ntiamoah is the same one who pulled off the blockbuster local grudge bout between Bukom Banku and Ayitey Powers (Michael Ayitey Okine) at the Accra Stadium on July 16, 2014, which attracted almost 20,000 fans.
