The Bombers team continued with their excelling performances at the Mount Kilimanjaro Boxing championship in Tanzania despite registering a first loss on day two.

Team captain Tukamuhebwa Joshua was victorious in his second fight as he defeated Joseph John from Tanzania prisons in the Light welterweight category by a 3-0 score.

Joshua has vowed to bring home the gold medal as he sets eyes in the 2022 commonwealth games in Birmingham.

“I am delighted for collecting my second win here in Tanzania and I am sure I will be returning home with a golden medal from the championships,” Said Tukamuhebwa.

“This tournament has helped me to get ready for the up coming commonwealth games as it is acting as sparring lessons to me. I am ready to fight whoever comes my way in the commonwealth games.”

Kibira Owen has also continued with his excelling performances as he stopped Sabura from Tanzania in the first round of the welterweight category.

Owen has now won two fights on RSC (Referee Stops Contest) decisions. His first fight was stopped in the second round.

For Isaac Ssenyange Zebra, his opponent Yusuf Ali from Tanzania might have feared to face him as he disappeared on the last hour and he won by walk over in the light middle weight.

The only lady on the team Nakimuli Teddy was out for her first fight in the championship against Magreth Itembo from Zambia and she lost by a 3-0 score despite putting up a spirited fight.

Teddy will have to pick up the positives as she heads into her second fight.

The only Ugandan boxer yet to enter the ring is Kyobe Jonah who was supposed to fight on Sunday but his fight was rescheduled and he will enter the ring on Monday alongside Nkobeza Yusuf who had a resting day.
