Bukom Banku trains son Abu Kamoko in the streets of Accra

52

Retired Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Isaac Kamoko, popularly known as Bukom Banku, has taken to the streets of Accra to impart his boxing wisdom to his son, Abu Kamoko, a member of Ghana’s national amateur boxing team, ‘The Black Bombers.’

The 43-year-old, famed for having only one loss in his career against Bastie Samir six years ago, is now dedicated to grooming his son to continue the family legacy in Ghana’s boxing fraternity.

In a video shared on X, formerly Twitter, the boxing maestro is seen engaging in sparring sessions with his son, providing valuable ring lessons. The footage, which has gone viral, captures the attention of onlookers in the streets of Accra, with several people stopping to watch the iconic father-son training session.

Bukom Banku recently announced his retirement from professional boxing, expressing his desire to pass the torch to his children.

The Ghanaian boxer, who clinched a bronze medal in the heavyweight division at the 1999 African Games in South Africa, laid the foundation for his illustrious professional career. With an impressive record of 29 wins in 30 fights, Bukom Banku’s only loss came against Bastie Samir in October 2017.

Despite signing a lucrative contract with local promotional giant Box Office Promotions, Bukom Banku has not entered the ring since his last international victory in 2019.

Now, he channels his wealth of experience and skill into training his son, Abu Kamoko, ensuring that the family’s boxing legacy continues to thrive.
