Keen to gain a revenge for his defeat in their 2014 clash, Ayitey Powers started the more aggressive and appeared to gain the measure of Bukom Banku in the opening round.

Kamoko soon found his rhythm however and began unleashing a plethora of punches, uppercuts and jabs all over the face and body of Powers right from the second round and it remained that way for the rest of the fight.

Banku continued with his dominance amid a desperation to achieve his much trumpeted promise to knock out his opponent in five rounds.
