Bukom Banku To Receive WBO Award On Saturday

World title aspirant Braimah Kamoko popularly called Bukom Banku is set to receive his (World Boxing organization) WBO African boxer of the year 2011 at a lavish ceremony slated for the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel in Accra this Saturday November 26 at 7pm.

The dinner buffet/ award presentation ceremony with live music by THE CELEBRANTS band, will see Andrew Smale, the WBO Africa President present the award to Bukom Banku.

The unbeaten WBO Africa Light Heavyweight champion won all two of his fights this year and was expected to have taken up the award at the WBO Congress in Puerto Rico last month but US immigration officials in Accra refused the visa application of certain key members of the boxer’s management and promotion team.

Now the GoldenMike Boxing Promotions and Golden Concept Management International are organizing this presentation ceremony to officially recognize the accolade for the boxer.

“Attendance is strictly by invitation and nobody would be permitted entry without an invitation. All should comport themselves because dignitaries will be there in their numbers therefore no invitation, no entry,” GoldenMike Boxing Promotions CEO Mike Tetteh iterated in a statement.
