David Ssemuju joined Alex Bwambale in the quarter-finals of the Africa Boxing championships ongoing in Dakar Senegal. However, Adnan Yasin’s Olympic dream was shattered by Nadir Abdelhaq of Morocco after three rounds of hard-hitting.
Ssemujju, the top seed in this category prevailed in a close contest, winning on a split decision.
