Alhaji Topic could not hide his amazement when he was asked to respond calls from Bastie’s camp.

“Im surprised how we can suspend referee Ghartey because he did a marvelous job. The referee was fair”.

"In Round 3 Banku was knocked down and Bukom Banku wanted to pass through the rope. In Round 6, he stopped it because Bukom Banku had a cut and the referee took him to the neutral corner for his doctor to attend to him”.

"In Round 7 Bukom Banku was knocked out. He couldn’t even walk forwards so the referee had to stop the fight."

Bukom Banku is proposing a rematch with Bastie Samir. Only time will tell if that will actually happen.
