THE Bombers can only enter camp next week after it emerged that the Lugogo hostel was fully booked by other sportsmen. A squad of 13 boxers is preparing for the Africa Boxing Championships due in Madagascar later this month.

“They will have another extra one week doing non residential training and will start residential May 7,” explained local boxing federation vice president Stephen Aciga.

The team has M. Sserunjogi, A. Mugerwa, J. Kato, S. Bogere, F. Muhumuza, M. Obin, M. Kulabako, I. Ssenyange, A. Katende, C. Muwanga with P. Adyak, H. Abdu and N. Bbule as training partners.

Coaches Dick Katende, Hussein Khalil and Musa Kent are handling the team ahead of the continental event, which will be a qualifier to the World Boxing Championships. UABF are meanwhile looking for sh40m to travel to Madagascar.

UABF president Rogers Ddungu made an appeal to sponsors at Bugolobi where boxing fan Mike Mukula hosted prize fighter Kassim Ouma and the Bombers to a dinner at his residence.

At the dinner, singer Juliana Kanyomozi pledged sh1m to the Bombers while US-based businessman John Magezi pledged sh2m.
