-Bastie Samir is no 'small' boxer as he is highly regarded as a very good boxer
-Even the great Floyd Mayweather admitted to his toughness after training with him
Braimah Kamoko, popularly known as Bukom Banku was handed his first professional defeat by US-based Bastie Samir last Saturday.
The convincing defeat, which came by a seventh round knockout from the not so popular Samir, got a section of Ghanaians trolling Bukom Banku, who often described himself as the African Mayweather, on social media.
But it turns out that the 'Banku beater' is no minnow in the game and is highly regarded even by the Floyd Mayweather himself.
Having faced the Ghanaian in a 15 round sparring session, Mayweather admitted to Samir's toughness and tenacity.
"This is the 3rd guy I boxed in a 15 round sparring session. He fights at 168lbs and he just keep coming no matter", he posted on Instagram sometime ago.
So you may have to empathize with Bukom Banku and not troll him as he really 'met him his metre', to put it the Ayittey Powers way.
If the American Mayweather found Samir to be a tough opponent, it should not surprise anyone that the African Mayweather got whipped.
