Bukom Banku won the WBO Africa Light Heavyweight and WBO Africa Cruiserweight titles during his two decades in the business.

The boxer gave the following excuse for quitting: “I’m now grown and at the same time my eye is also paining me, so I don’t want to fight again.”

“I leave everything to my three children, who also happen to be fighters in boxing. I give my gloves to Mustapha and Abu Kamoko so they can continue the fight.

I’ve already made the necessary preparations for them to carry on my name. Maybe they can reach where I was unable to in boxing. I have officially given up boxing. He continued.

In his boxing career, Bukom Banku has only suffered one loss, which occurred six years ago against Bastie Samir.
