Uganda National Boxing Team to Miss Botswana Challenge

rx geneva;”>OC, treatment UBF at war

With no facilitation from responsible parties but spending more than shs 350, 000 daily from individuals and well wishers such as Sharif Bogere, who contributed $50 towards the federation to prepare the team for the qualifiers, is the reason why the players might fail to take part.

“Initially we had sent a tentative list of boxers who are ready for the competition in Botswana but up to now UOC is yet to confirm our participation,” explained Fred Kavuma, the Uganda boxing federation spokesperson.

“UOC president William Blick told us we are not going to Botswana verbally but we are yet to receive formal communication from UOC,” he told ChimpSport on Tuesday.

This underlines the challenges Ugandan sports men and women have to go through to participate in international competitions.

UOC officials are expected to hold a meeting this week to decide on The Boxers’ fate.

Fred Kavuma said the boxing federation remains hopeful that money will be found to facilitate their trip to Botswana.

At least 23 boxers are in camp training with only 14 expected to exhibit their skills in the South African country.
