Braimah Isaac Kamoko, widely known as Bukom Banku, has announced his retirement from boxing, citing the desire to pass the torch to his children.

The Ghanaian boxer clinched a bronze medal in the heavyweight division at the 1999 African Games in South Africa, laying the foundation for his professional career. He dominated the ring, racking up an impressive record of 29 wins in 30 fights. His only loss came against Bastie Samir in October 2017.

I’ve grown, and at the same time, my eye is also paining me, so I don’t want to fight again. Three of my children are boxers, so I’ve left everything for them. I’ve packed my gloves and my shoes, all for them, Abu Kamoko and Mustafa Kamoko. I’ve laid the path so they can continue.” he said in Okay FM

What’s next for Banku?

“I have stopped boxing, and I’m starting comedy and some shows I do by myself,”
