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.

Hungarian promoter Istvan Roseman of Hungary has promoted the fight for the first time in Uganda.

The day’s menu has at least 12 fights with the major undercard to see Ugandan Alex Masiko taking on Hungarian Istvan Szucs in the middleweight international title.

Weigh in of the fighters is today Thursday midday at Lugogo Indoor Arena.
