Bukom Banku, who until Saturday was undefeated, disclosed he wants a rematch with Bastie Samir on 6 March, 2018.
“I’ve lost the fight, but this is not a correct lose. Bastie Samir is the winner but this is not a correct lose. I’ll come back for a return fight on the sixth of March. When I defeated Ayitey Powers, he came for a rematch so Bastie has beaten me and I’ll come back for a return bout,” Banku said.
Bukom Banku was knocked out by Bastie Samir in the seventh round in a fight dubbed ''Make or Break'' at the Bukom Boxing Arena, in Accra.
His record is now 30 fights 29 wins 1 defeat, and he is still bragging that he is not the first person to lose a contest. He promised to come back better prepared and make a sweet revenge to make his fans happy.
He urged his fans never to lose hope as he lost, but did not like the way the referee stopped the bout as some boxer get cuts and bleed, but keep fighting on to win, and could have won if the fight had continued.
He praised Bastie for his courage to fight him and will never underrate him again.
