Well i'd say there is a good chance, after watching the anime street fighter alpha generations.
It is inferred once in the alpha movie and more again in alpha generations, but is not necessarily canon. All we know for certain is that Gouki killed Goutetsu, master of Gouki and Gouken, and Gouken, master of Ken and Ryu (but not really, since Gouken makes an appearance in SF4). And no, Gouki didn't change his name to Akuma because of any similarities with the name Gouken, it was changed when the game was brought to America because "Gouki" didn't sound demonic enough.
