Abu Kamoko lost in the final match of the 86kg cruiserweight category against Algerian boxer Kanouni Ousama at the recent All-African Games, securing a silver medal, surpassing his father's achievement of winning a bronze medal 25 years ago.

Responding to his son’s loss in a final boxing match during the African Games, Bukom Banku explained that Abu Kamoko was frightened by the huge crowd which affected his performance in the ring.

“This is his first time in the game. He feared the crowd and was frightened, so he lost, but his opponent was a small match for him. I trained Abu Kamoko up until age 7,” he stated.
