Kick boxing is one of the few games that have brought Uganda to fame, more especially under the two names Golola Moses and Tugume Titus. Now to give more exposure to the young kick boxers, the federation has organized an international as well as African championship dubbed; “The reign of giants’’.
Under this, various players of Uganda, male and female, are going to compete for both international and African tittles. The fights are set to take place at the MTN arena Lugogo on the 2nd of December 2016.
The main game of the day is between Matsiko Alex (lion heart) playing against Khalid Dormosh from the United Arab Emirates.
One of Matsikos biggest achievements was when he stunned the entire world in 2014 by winning the European Champion Istvan Szucs.
Other fighters of the day shall be Uganda’s Shakey Mubiru (the breaker) against Tunisia’s Ben Anes Montassar. In the female category Ugandas Apolot Patria (Black Pearl) shall face Lakhrech from Tunisia.
Apolot is the only Ugandan kick boxer who has managed to achieve international accolades in the game of kick boxing. She has also managed to defend all her tittles like the WKF international championship in Hungary. Apolot has also managed to win 11 fights out of the 12 hence 11W6KO.
