A highly anticipated revenge for Ssemujju did not have a happy-ending, Younes also defeated the Ugandan Boxer at the Semi Finals of the African Olympic qualifiers in Dakar, Senegal in the middleweight last 32.

 

However, Ssemujju did much better against the Algerian that had 6 matches, winning four and losing two before the Olympics since March 2021. David last had a competitive game in February 2020 before Uganda went into its first lockdown due to the Corona Virus Out-break.
