Announcing the team on Monday, Uganda Boxing Federation president Moses Muhangi was bitter at government’s failure to send a full team.
 
“This is not fair, more so when boxing is one of the country’s top medal-winning disciplines. To make it even worse the National Council of Sports could not even allow us to fund the travel of more boxers,” complained Muhangi.
