Sergeant Abdu’s decision came a few days after his most recent victory during which he retained his ABU title. He did this with a lot of ease when he outlasted Juma Mwalugo from Tanzania at Bombi Military grounds over the weekend.
In just two minutes, Sebute had knocked out Mwalugo. Following that victory, he felt like he had become a contending continental champion.
“I am more than ready to contest the African title because it is the right time to dream big. I have defeated everyone in my weight and I am good to go,” Sebute says.
Abdu Sebute currently holds a ring record of eight fights without a loss, four of which were knockouts. He had been last active in 2019 before Covid-19 after he had just won his first title.
He is now convinced that it is the right time to take on the challenge against Africa’s finest boxers.
“When you have to be the best, you have to be ready to face the best of the best. I think this is my right time to claim what belongs to me,” Sebute said.
Later that same evening, the minister of Education and Sports, Janet Museveni handed each of the fighters sh10m. The joyous Sebute thanked the First Lady for her support of the sport.
