Uganda Boxing Champions League: Sande- Ukasha fight to headline week six


Shortly after being named in the Uganda Bombers squad, Bwaise’s Ukasha Matovu will first battle it out with Simon Sande in the Uganda Boxing Champions League.

The bout is set to be boxed out on Saturday at Club Obligato in Kampala where UBCL week six show time will go down.

Simon, the Dancing Lion from Nansana Kyebando Boxing Club sounded so confident and very ready as he promised to issue Ukasha a Visa to Cameroon after his Bombers call-up at the weighing/ face-off on Friday.

Sande who lost to Ukasha last season concluded and said that he is going to disprove Matovu and rewrite so he can re-write his name on the National team list.

With a question that If he can’t beat him as Sande then why is he going to Cameroon?

Ukasha on the other side, will look to clear out Sande who didn’t have a good run in last years UBCL winning twice and losing double of his winning tally.

Stepping up to the stage, Ukasha made a huge statement of wanting to be the best in the country;

“With confidence, I would like to say that my focus is to be the best in the Country, I want to start with winning some medals for Uganda and I hope to begin with this one in Cameroon.”

“I know a lot about my Sande because we once shared the Gym before but he later went to the wrong side and I want him to learn the hard way with the best techniques.”
