I will beat 'undefeated' Anthony Johsua easily - Bukom Banku
Brimah Kamoko has challenged heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to step up to fight him immediately.
Kamoko, popularly known as Bukom Banku is absolutely confident he will achieve victory over undefeated Anthony Joshua should the British boxer agree to fight him.
Joshua is yet to taste defeat having fought 19 professional fights with all victories coming by way of knockout. His latest win over the great Wladimir Klitschko has made him the hottest commodity on the boxing market as far as the heavyweight division is concerned.
Joshua stopped Klitschko in the 11th round to secure a stunning victory at Wembley Stadium to retain the IBF belt and also bagged the WBA and IBO strap but Banku who watched the bout is unperturbed and fully convinced he is the right man to defeat Joshua.
‘’I would love to fight Joshua, am serious about it and will beat him if we fight. I know some people will doubt me because Joshua is unbeaten and has beaten some top guys[Klitschko] in his division but they also have to trust me[their countryman]’’ He said on Joy Fm Sports Link program on Saturday
‘’I will beat him[Joshua] hands down. I watched his fight with Klitschko and was not impressed with him but happy he defeated the Ukrainian,’’
‘’For Klitschko he cannot stand me so don’t want to fight him’’
Banku, also undefeated in 28 professional bout with 21 knockouts, is preparing to face Bastie Samir in what could be the biggest bout in the country in 2017.
The super-middleweight fighter, Bastie Samir, has thrown a challenge to the Cruiserweight champion to fight him or shut up.
Bastie, a former sparring partner of Floyd Mayweather Jr, is confident he will beat Bukom Banku but the latter has other ideas.
“I will fight Bastie Samir to prove to all that defeating him is very simple.”
‘’Bastie is a cheap and inexperience boxer. I beat him mercilessly.’’
The date for the bout is yet to be decided.
