African Championships bronze medallist Acacio Quifucussa of Angola, is a raw and exciting talent who medalled at his first continental championships this year. QUIFUCUSSA caught the eye as he won four of his five contests against tricky opposition from Tunisia, Cape Verde, Libya and South Africa. Three of his wins were by ippon and he would love to repeat such a run on the world stage with a bit of luck and a favourable draw. He claimed a bronze medal at the African Games in Rabat in 2019.
