Nature Africa Charitable Fight – At Aya, Nakasero (6 pm till late) -20,000 and 30,000/=
To say that the Boxing faithfuls are as fortunate as those who receive a stormy in Hell is no underestimation but rather a self manifestation of great tidings particularly for the sport addicts.
On Friday, the boxing fraternity will be left with countless options of which fights to watch. The Uganda Boxing Union (UBU) in conjuction with Big Strikers Interanational and the rival Uganda Professional Boxing Council (UPBC) in collaboration with Inter-Sport International have organized different fights, both within Kampala at the same time.
At Hilton Hotel,Nakasero Musa ‘Desert Storm’ Bantantu will be facing Irish born Kenny Egan in the main fight in the Super Middle weight category.
Zebra Ssenyange ‘Mando’ Ssenyange, who also had a fight last week at Club D9, Bwaise will be back in the ring against Zziwa in the same super middle weight and Badru ‘Mr Crush’ Lusambya will face Tanzanian Kuku Zumbe among other sidelined fights while at Club Obligatto along Bombo road, there is another battle where Fred Muhumuza will face Kenyan Patrick Amote in a 10 round fight.
In the other fights at Obligatto, Sula Sseagawa will face DR Congo’s Herve Zongo (light weight), Robert Kamya vs Charles Kakande and Hudson Muhumuza will battle James Ololo in a 6 round heavy weight contest.
Maureen Mulangira, promoter of the fights at Hilton calls upon the general public to watch the fight while his opposite number at Obligatto, Mwesigwa has promised ultimate security and safety garantee of all the fans that will throng Obligatto for the fights there.
“I really do not know where to go, may be, i will have to watch at both places in bits”, says Geofrey Sserumaga, an ardent boxing fan since 1992.
James Okello perhaps decries hosting the same events on the same day. “Now some of us who wanted to watch both groups shall miss out, this is injustice to boxing fans”, Okello says.
Both Mulangira and Mwesigwa held their respective weigh-in ceremonies on Thursday at the same time.
