“If Ghanaians want ‘wee’ to be legalized, why not? It should be legalised for them. If the legalisation will not disturb the country why not? It can be considered.” Samir said.

Speaking on Accra FM, the boxer, who knocked out Bukom Banku in the seventh round last week, denied smoking weed although he has been accused of smoking the illegal substance.

The Beast, as he is popularly called, praised God for giving him victory of Banku, who calls himself Africa Mayweather.

He promised to work hard to fulfil promises he's made to his fans.

“I give praise and thanks to God for the victory against Bukom Banku. With God’s help I will continue with my profession and win more fights,” he said.

He continued: “I worked hard for this fight and fulfilled the promises I made to my fans and, so, I was very happy with the outcome.
