Bukom Banku Vs Ayittey Powers at Baba Yara Sports Stadium

Bukom Banku will end 2015 on a good note as he is the proud owner of a new SUV Range Rover, has a ticket for a holiday trip to South Africa and a cash prize of Ghc100,000.

The much anticipated boxing bout between Bukom Banku and Ayittey Powers dubbed ‘Repeat or Revenge’ finally came off at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Saturday December 26 2015.

Contrary to earlier speculations that the event might not enjoy a high patronage, the seating areas prepared for the event was filled to capacity.

In a night that saw seven other bouts prior to the ultimate, patrons were also entertained with great music as Sarkodie, Kwaw Kese, Pope Skinny and Shatta Wale performed hit songs after the other.

Now to the much talked about bout. (Bukom Banku Vs Ayittey Powers)

In a fiercely contested bout that saw Ayittey Powers who was in for a revenge put up his best compared to their previous bout in Accra, the yellow dyed hair boxer could not go beyond the fifth round as he suffered an injury and threw in the towel.

An exhausted Ayittey Powers could hardly stand on his feet prior to round 6 and therefore suffered a technical knockout.

An elated Bukom Banku who retains the title and wins a prize package of a brand new Range Rover thanked the organizers of the event, Joy Daddy Bitters and Black Avenue Sports for the gesture and apologized for his earlier comment that sought to spite the sponsors.

As it stands Banku moves to 27-0-0 while Powers dropped to 25 loses, a draw and 21 wins, 17 of which came by way of knockout.
