The Bulldogs next win came from the final match of the night from senior Jon Kurtz in the 220lb class. Kurtz defeated Dakota Pearson by 11-9 earning the final three points of the night for the Bulldogs. The night ended with the Panthers on top of the Bulldogs 72-6. The Bulldogs season record drops to 2-4.Additional Varsity wrestlers competing for the Bulldogs included: JT Linkel, Jonah Chase, Jon Vincent, Ethan Meyer, Chris Schene, Drew McLeod, Axel Garcia, and Drew Garbarini. Varsity wrestlers Michael Deal, Jackson Wooldridge, and Abram Garcia were sidelined for the evening but will be back for the upcoming match against Madison. Not having these wrestlers in the lineup was a huge disadvantage for the Bulldogs but gave some of our freshman replacing them a good taste of varsity wrestling. The experience they gained will benefit them all as the season moves forward.Reserve Wrestlers competing for the Bulldogs include a lineup of four freshman: Mason Green, Nick Nobbe, Malachi Kirby, and Conner Batchelor.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Chris Deal.
Popular Ghanaian cruiser weight boxer, Braimah Kamoko aka Bukom Banku has stated that a rematch with rival Basite Samir is very unlikely to happen because of health reasons.Kamoko says that should he get back into the ring to face Bastie, he will suffer a stroke or worse, he could die.He made this revelation on UTV in a video which made the rounds on Monday. Kamoko was speaking to Halifax Ansah Addo of UTV.The two boxers were involved in a non-title bout in 2017 which was intense due to the rivalry between the two boxers. Bastie prevailed on the night at the Bukom Boxing Arena via a 7th round knockout in a result that sent shock waves all through the country.But it seems fans may not see a rematch since Kamoko has underlined the dangers he faces should he attempt facing Bastie again.“I still think about that from 2 years ago and I still do not understand how I lost to Bastie because I believed that he was not match for me.However, I was scared at the time of the bout because I almost suffered a stroke that night. When I was getting into the ring, I saw that Bastie was larger in size. I knew him to be shorter than I was but he looked taller.Stunned: Bukom Banku on the canvas after Basite had knocked him outI asked my coach to confirm if that was really Bastie in the ring and he confirmed. That night at the arena, everything was in Bastie’s corner.Even the mineral water being sold was supporting Bastie. Millions of people supported him while I had only five people going for me.Should I face Bastie again, I will either suffer a stroke or I will die.”Kamoko went on to say that after tasting international boxing, there was no way he would risk his life in a rematch but that Bastie Samir’s supporters and associates should get their boxer the chance to fight outside Ghana.This year, Kamoko fought in the United Kingdom and defeated Ferenc Albert in a cruiser weight bout.Below is the video of Bukom Banku speaking on UTV:
