In his post-fight address, he pledged to deliver more for his fans as his focus will be raising his level of fight.
“This is just the beginning, I thank my fans. I want to raise this country’s flag high and bring what hasn’t been achieved before for my nation. I know I am better than every boxer here in the country, but this time round, I trained and that’s why you saw a different version of me”, he stated.
Meanwhile, Magumba apologised to his supporters urging Bwogi to give him a rematch.
“I apologise to my fans but these things happen…at times you might want to marry a woman but she fails to turn up for the event…I had a few challenges in training but I am asking him for rematch. He was beaten me in the first round but let him give me a chance for a rematch”.
