The 43-year-old won a bronze medal at the All-Africa Games in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1999 which shot him to fame and high prominence.

In his 2 decades career, Bukom Banku held the WBO Africa Light Heavyweight WBO Africa Cruiserweight titles.

I’m now grown and at the same time my eye is also paining me, so I don’t want to fight again,” the boxer stated as the rationale behind his retirement.

I have three children and my children are also fighting boxing, so I leave everything to them. I leave my gloves to Abu Kamoko and Mustapha Kamoko to fight on.

I’ve already prepared the road so they can continue my name. Where I couldn’t reach in boxing, maybe they can reach there. So officially I’ve quit boxing.” he added.

Bukom Banku lost just once in his boxing career – a defeat that came against Bastie Samir six years ago.
