Kamoko weighed eighteen pounds above the stipulated 200-pound limit for the bout while Powers weighed exactly 200 pounds.
However, the President of the Ghana Boxing Authority, Peter Zweenes, said Banku would still be permitted to fight because of the non-title nature of the bout even though failure to meet the weight limit would attract a deduction from his fight purse.
Both Boxers seemed buoyant and all fired up when they converged at the Ohene Djan Sports stadium on Wednesday for their respective weigh-in session.
Their arrival was met with cheers and chants of war songs as they thrilled the numerous fans gathered at the Ohene Djan stadium with their funny gestures and mannerisms before mounting the weighing machine.
All roads will now lead to the Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday evening with the gates set to open at 5pm . The supporting bouts begin at 7pm ahead of the main Banku vrs Powers showdown a little later.
Another Middleweight contests sees Ahmed Saraku facing Sadiq Musah, all before the main bout of Judgement Night comes on.
