Uganda Boxing Champions League: Semuddu primarily lives to his promise


Muzamir Semuddu lived to his primary promise of breaking Richard Kasujja’s jaw in the 11th week of the Uganda Boxing Champions League at the MTN Arena- Lugogo on Saturday.

This time round, a fun and action packed week 11 was graced by the President of South Sudan Boxing and wife of first vice president of South Sudan government  Teresa Athian Abdelbagi, Uganda Boxing Federation President, Moses Muhangi, Football stars Martin Kiiza, Mustapha Kiiza and Nelson Ssenkatuka.

Semuddu aka Mr Take Over aggressively outclassed Kasujja in Round 3 only for the Referee to Stop the Contest with confirmation that the Lufula boxer couldn’t continue fighting.

Semuddu who had boxed out Kasujja to a National team engagement(Africa Elite Boxing Championship) in Yoaunde, Cameroon before was so determined to do it again, something he managed to put in action.

After topping all the two rounds of the fights all was left in balance to see if Semuddu will fight so hard to finish off Kasujja pending what would come out of fourth and fifth quarter but to his suprise, Kasujja didn’t go past the third round.

In the other fights of the night, Hussein Mulo won the bout between him and Omondi Marvin 5:0 unanimous in the Elite 54Kgs while Ojok Alfred who was supposed to play against Yusuf Nkobeza was handed Mukuye Harold who he humbled with 5:0 unanimous score in the Elite 75Kgs.

In the Youth category- 75kgs, Semugayire John won 5:2 split against Onen Felix while in the women a composed Salima Ibrahim boxed out Babirye Mutebi with a 5:0 unanimous score  in the Junior 54Kgs

Just like Salima, Katushabe Angel in the Youth 50Kgs also won by 5:0 unanimous against Lagum Rebecca.

For Apio Irene she looked no different from the other winners in the women contests with 5:0 unanimous win against Namitala Daphine in the Junior 52Kgs.

Rest of the results;

Lukomagi Mark outclassed Kalule Kenneth in the Youth 48Kgs hence the Referee stopping the contest, Nasinge Garvin won a split 5:2 after review against Nasasira Moses in the Junior 60Kgs while Ochama Destiny too won by a split 4:1 decision against Mwanga Ashraf in the Junior 57Kgs.
