“The fight is between Kenny “Da Mexico” Lukyamuzi and Malawi’s Chikadi Makawa. This will be my first fight to promote this year. We are back to promote local talent. We have mixed with musicians to lure as many fans as possible. I call upon all fans to come in large numbers,” Kigozi noted.

Standing at 10 fights, 3 losses, 1 draw and 6 wins (one victory by knock out), Lukyamuzi vowed to win the contest.

“I promise to win this bout against Makawa. I am training well and will continue to train until the fight comes. I have to floor him down. Experience will not matter on the day but rather my skills. I thank my promoter, my fans, HBT Hotel management and the gym services provided to me,” Lukyamuzi vowed.
