Tunisia’s Boxing Contenders Chase Olympic Dreams in Dakar Qualifier

The stage is set, the stakes are high, and Tunisia’s national boxing team is gearing up for an intense battle at the Boxing Africa Qualifier, a critical stepping stone on the path to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Hosted by Dakar, Senegal, from September 9-13, this tournament is where dreams are forged and futures determined.

Heading the Tunisian delegation is Zied Barbouche, President of the Tunisian Boxing Federation, whose dedicated support for the team reflects the nation’s collective aspiration. Alongside him are key figures like Montassar Guennouni, the national technical director, and Khemais Arfaoui, the national coach, all working tirelessly to guide their talented boxers towards Olympic glory.

Ten determined pugilists have journeyed to Dakar, each carrying the hopes of a nation on their shoulders. The roster includes Hamza Ghazouani (71 kg), Youssef Rafrafi (80 kg), Mehdi Dridi (63.5 kg), Amor Khelifa (57 kg), Alaeddine Zidi (51 kg), Khouloud Hlimi (57 kg), Wafa Hafsaoui (50 kg), Chedha Jelassi (54 kg), Islam Ferchichi (60 kg), and Molka Ben Mabrouk (75 kg).

The competition in Dakar is fierce, as boxers from across Africa vie for coveted spots at the Paris 2024 Olympics. This is a trial by fire, where resilience, skill, and determination will determine who secures those precious quota seats.

For the athletes who miss out on qualification in Dakar, all hope is not lost. They will have another opportunity to clinch their Olympic dreams at the two world qualification competitions set to unfold in Busto Arzizio, Italy.

The journey to the Olympics is a relentless pursuit of excellence, and these Tunisian boxers are prepared to go the distance. Every punch, every jab, every round is a testament to their dedication and the unwavering support of their nation.

As they step into the ring in Dakar, Tunisia rallies behind its boxing heroes, wishing them the strength, courage, and skill needed to secure those golden tickets to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Whatever the outcome, these athletes are already champions, embodying the spirit of determination and representing Tunisia on the world stage.
