Boxing: Bogere Tames Malawian Kayuni


approved geneva;”>In a fight held at MTN Arena Lugogo, Uganda’s welterweight boxer Solomon Bogere was crowned African Boxing Union champion after winning against Kayuni on points 118-110, purchase 119-109, 116-112, all in favour of Bogere.

Though, Bogere had promised to knock-out Kayuni in the first round, the plan failed and they went a whole 12 rounds journey.

“I think judges were not fair at all. The funny thing is that in boxing, there is no home and away; once you lose, it is a done deal but I will not give up,” said Kayuni after the fight.

Bogere will now join the WBC ranks in some days to come.

Nonetheless, the rankings will come along with the WBC-I title fight early January next year.

Abbey Mugayi, the fight organiser, applauded the home boy for the excellent performance.

“Bogere has made us proud and we hope he will be ranked soon by WBC as well as being given WBC-I fight next year to test if he is worthy to be ranked,” put in Mugayi.

The fight was well-attended and the fans got what they paid for.

On the other hand, some fans also got concerned with the judgement claiming that Kayuni did better than Bogere.
