Spread the love

At the current 2023 African Games, Abubakar Kamoko, the son of retired Ghanaian boxer Bukom Banku, has won a medal for his country.

Kamoko, who was competing in the 86kg cruiserweight division, put on a fantastic display to defeat his opponent and earn a spot in the semifinals.

Kamoko has already guaranteed himself at least a bronze, following in the footsteps of his father, who won a bronze medal at the 1999 African Games in South Africa.

Still, Kamoko hopes to improve on his accomplishment by winning his next battles and moving up to silver or gold.

The encouraging showing of Ghana’s boxing team in the Games is further enhanced by Kamoko’s accomplishment. Other boxers who have advanced to the semifinals in their respective categories and are certain of medals are Janet Acquah (Minimum weight -48 kg), Mohammed Aryeetey (Minimum weight -48 kg), and Theophilus Kpakpo Allotey (Flyweight -51 kg).

Some athletes, regrettably, were unable to move on to the next round, but six other Ghanaian boxers, including Amadu Mohammed (Bantamweight -54 kg) and Samuel Takyi (Light Welterweight -63.5 kg), are still fighting for a medal.
