Ghana’s Bukom Banku has won his first ever victory outside Ghana after he knocked out Ferenc Albert in Bradford, United Kingdom on Saturday, September 7.
Banku successfully defeated Albert in the 3rd round of their bout which took place at St. George Hall in Bradford.
Prior to the fight, the “African Mayweather” as he prefers to be called was quoted by boxing Ghana to have said, “Tell me a Ghanaian champion who has never tasted defeat before. The likes of Azumah Nelson, Joshua Clottey, Ike Quartey, Joseph Agbeko and the rest.
I have learnt alot from my defeat to Samir Bastie and hopefully I will show that on fight night in UK. Look this is my first international pro fight and I intend to make a statement.
I am going to stop him (Albert Ferenc) in round 5. This fight won’t travel far. I tell you.”
Ferenc had promised to knock out Banku in round 3 but the Hungarian instead predicted doom for himself.
