BUDDING Heavyweight Kenneth Odeke returns to action when he takes on Hudson Muhumuza in the national title fight at Lugogo today.

It will be the first fight between the two arch rivals who have always vowed to outdo each other in the ring.

Odeke, 22, who returns to action five months after he lost to Sayed Abbas Nassib of Iran, yesterday, vowed to thump his 37-year opponent. 

“This is the time to decide who is better. I have got more power, stamina and speed. My plan is to punish that guy up to the fourth round. After that I will make him sleep peacefully,” Odeke stated.

Muhumuza, who boasts of having deep experience promised to educate Odeke.

“Odeke talks alot because he lacks experience. As for me, I am well groomed with a rich amateur record,” Muhumuza said.

Super bantamweight Edward Kakembo will battle Raymond Ssentongo in the other national fight.
