Banku vs Powers now set for 16th May

The Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) has

confirmed 16th May as the new date for the

bout between Braimah Kamoko and Ayittey


A meeting between the management of the

boxers, broadcasters, SuperSport, and the GBA

was held on Tuesday afternoon at the Accra

Sports Stadium to discuss the bout after

Powers had decided on withdrawing from the

bout which was scheduled originally for 18th


But the GBA confirmed the new date to Citi

Sports on Tuesday.

"The GBA, the promoters and all those involved

met and they settled on the 16th of May as the

new date for the Banku vs Powers bout", said

Naa Darkua Dodoo, spokesperson for the GBA.

She added that the promoters, Box Office

Promotions, were concerned at the public

reaction following the announcement of

Powers' withdrawal and ticket sales had been

affected so getting a new date was vital to the

success of the bout.

She confirmed that both boxers had been

contacted and they were in agreement on the

new date of the bout. It is believed that the

Accra Sports Stadium would remain as the

venue for the event which will be broadcast on

SuperSport all over the African continent and

on TV3 for the Ghanaian public.
