At the press conference the two boxers addressed the media.

Ayitey Powers said, “This time Bukom Banku is not going to get it easy, I will make sure that I get my revenge. Even the prize at stake is also my target and I will be going all out come December 26.”

The undefeated Kamako angrily responded, “Powers is not a boxer that can stop me, even the whole Kumasi Township can support him but I will give him a beat of his life. I’m surely going to beat him because I want to keep my perfect record intact.”
