Pentagon, UPDF Boxers Tie Up


salve web geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>Mohamed Lukwago and Etyang Sebufu of Pentagon and UPDF respectively, were the key players who ensured a good performance for their clubs.

Kick-boxing federation general secretary, Eddie Gombya, said he was impressed by the performance of the players.

“Players who have made it to the finals expressed extraordinary talent and I think if they go on like that, Uganda has a bright future in the game of kick-boxing,” added Gombya.

“In two years to come, no kick-boxer will be endorsed by the local Federation if he/she hasn’t played in the Kick-boxing League locally.”

Goma further noted that “It’s not a matter of announcing yourself as a kick-boxer but going through all the ranks in the Kick-boxing League”.

“Now everybody thinks that in this game you just need to be powerful to announce yourself as a kick-boxer but it is not the case,” Gombya clarified.

Ronald Mugula also attended the climax of the league and was quoted saying, “I came here to inspire young lads who are just joining the game on the amateur level but actually, they have also inspired me ahead of my fight against Abdallah Hiseen on January 1.”

He added: “They have the techniques and skills but again the Federation has to do something to keep the talents I have seen today.”

The league is expected to resume early March next year with the expectation of more clubs joining.
