The fight will be rescheduled, according to a statement released by fight promoter Emmanuel Mwesigwa at Hotel Africana.
“The Iranian fighter is a devoted Muslim, he requested to have the fight rescheduled,” Mwesigwa told ChimpSport
“We cannot hold this fight this week cause there is a national strike and then the Moslem community is set for Ramadhan period,” UBU Chairperson Godfrey Kiwanuka added.
