WHILE Team Lusambya are threatening that their pugilist is punching the bag harder, his Tanzanian opponent Hassan ‘Red Bull’ Matumla believes he will break the Ugandan’s wining streak.

Matumla 12 (8kos)- 5-0 has predicted victory in their African super welterweight title fight “if the judges are fair.”

The Tanzanian has been in camp at his Matumla Gym in Dar-es-Salaam under the close guidance of 1972 Munich Olympian Bakari Selemani.

“He is sure of winning the fight 100 percent. But he is insisting on fair judging,” said Tanzania Professional Boxing Commission spokesman Boniface Wambura.

Badru Lusambya 15 (14kos)-0-0 beat Zambia’s Godfrey Chibuta in 2004 to win the Africa Boxing Union title.

Matumla is from a boxing family. His brother Rashid is a former World Boxing Union light middleweight champion while Mbwana Matumla holds the International Boxing Organisation super flyweight title.

Matumla’s best moment on the amateur scene came in 1994 when he won a bronze at the Victoria Commonwealth Games.

Uganda Professional Boxing Commission boss Celestine Mindra last week described the fight as a potential thriller that was likely to be Lusambya’s toughest.
