If you thought Golola Moses and Tugume Titus are kings of the kickboxing sport in Uganda, think again.
Word reaching our news desk indicates that plans are underway to make new kickboxing icons in the country.
However, the kickboxing federation is not start from scratch.
In December, we are told there will be a world title in Kampala where three Ugandan kickboxers will be the main acts.
The fights are slated to take place at the MTN arena Lugogo. We are yet to establish the date, time and sponsors. However, we understand the fights will be in early December.
Our source say there is Ugandan who is adored in Hungry as the Lion Heart. His name is Matsiko Alex. Alex is likely to fight Khalid Dormosh, from Dubai. This will be the first time a Ugandan will fight an Arab in a Kampala ring.
We have not seen girls kicking each other. This fight, we understand, will also feature Patricia Apolot who is popularly referred to as Black Pearl. Apolot from insiders say she will fight another Arab beauty who is famous for fighting in her hijab.
Another Ugandan expected in the ring is young blood Shakey Mubiru (the breaker) who will be up against Tunisia’s Ben Anes Montassar.
