Motor mouth kickboxer Moses Golola elevated the game of kickboxing four years ago.
It’s now time for ladies also to showcase their talent in the sport because they have been playing undercard fights all along.
This time they are for the main menu of the day at Lugogo Indoor MTN Arena when Patricia Apolot will be defending the national title against challenger Jackie Nassimbwa.

Apolot boasts of a vast ring experience with 25 fights and one loss while Nassimbwa has only 8 with one loss.
The two had a showdown at the national title that was vacant by then at Natete Shopping Center in August last year when Apolot captured the first ever women lightweight title with a two point lead against Nassimbwa.
