A silver medalist in the just concluded African Boxing Championship which was held in Yaoundé, Cameroon, Wasswa Ssali will be in the ring to prove his worth as he takes on Julius Kaddu in the light weight category as the Boxing Champions League commences on week 8 in Kamwokya at TLC courts.
Ssali is eager to represent Uganda in the Olympics despite not being considered on the 2024 Paris Olympic qualifiers that will be held in Senegal as per the list released by the Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC).
“My dream is to become an Olympian, so i don’t have time for these Ugandan kids. Fighting against Kaddu it’s a no match for me.” Said Wasswa Ssali
