Maverick Ghanaian boxer, Bukom Banku has been banned by the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) for breach of contract.
The report states that Bukom Banku has refused to make an appearance for the rematch which has caused the GBA to revoke his boxing license and ordering him to pay ¢17,000 to the promoter of the rematch with Samir, which was originally scheduled to have come off last year.
Banku and Bastie Samir signed a contract to fight each other in a rematch on June 20, 2018.
This followed a well-publicized cruiserweight bout that saw Samir overcome Banku with a seventh-round TKO at the Bukom Boxing Arena on October 21, 2017.
The win was significant for Samir, an Olympian, considering that it was Banku’s only loss in his professional career.
