The showdown between Braimah Kamoko aka Bukom Banku and Bastie Samir has been rescheduled by the bout organisers, Box Office Promotions.
The fight was set for September 30 at the Bukom Boxing Arena but Box Office Promotions say that certain factors have forced them to settle on October 21 as the new date.
A release signed by CEO of Box Office Promotions, Alex Ntiamoah, stated the reasons for the decision and it went on to assure fans that the fight between the two rivals would surely happen.
The statement reads:
“The Management of Box Office Sports Promotions, promoters of “MAKE OR BREAK” (BANKU vs BASTIE) fight, which was supposed to come off on September 30, 2017 at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, wish to inform the Ghanaian boxing fans and the general public that the show has been postponed to October 21, 2017 at the same venue (Bukom Boxing Arena).
The postponement is due to a request from a major TV partner which needs an ample time for pre-fight promotions, good planning for a world class production and programming to cover the event.
We, therefore, wish to apologize for any inconvenience caused and promise to bring to the Ghanaian boxing fans and the general public the best boxing promotions for the new schedule date.”
Kamoko and Samir had engaged in a lot of trash talk for years and the taunts continued at a sell-out press conference held two months at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
Fans now have to wait for the new date for the showdown which the two boxers believe will settle the debate and decide who the better boxer is.
