With lots big smiles enticed by the Master of Ceremony of the day, MunaKyaggwe Moses Kaddu of NBS Sport introducing the different boxer’s, the revealers who were more interested in their home boys as they continued to call out “Matovu Ukasha, Muzamir and Wasswa Ssali”

After they all got to the stage, a voice from all of them was let out to remind the public of their names and tell them about theit experience.

Among all the Bombers, the community’s favorite Matovu Ukasha was the long awaited voice the home crowd wanted to hear as increased their volume as he held the microphone;

“I want to start by thanking you for praying for us, we didn’t ashame you and delivered like we promised.”

“Allow me to also thank our Federation and coaches who organised us to compete at top level”

“It was a real battle against fighters who were better than us, but we were determined and these medals are a response.”

With lots of people who had flogged the place a speech from both the UBF President, Moses Muhangi and the area’s RCC Iddi Rashid highlighted that was need inorder mentally help the boxers in a realistic way.

After all was said the RCC gave the boys a token of appreciation of their works just like Muscian China Pro who promised to award the the winner of the first fight(Wasswa Ssali) with a token of shs. 200,000.

He didn’t stop there as he also awarded two of the team coaches with a wholesome shs.200,000 for the to share.

“Just like China Pro, it is important for us as the Federation to give back to the Community where we get our Boxers and there was no better way to celebrate this with our Ghetto people who give us the mandate, the people we live with, such a success.”

“It doesn’t make sense for you to live in a community then once you succeed you go and celebrate with other people. “

He concluded by giving the people hope;
