KCCA edged out Lukanga
East Coast 17
Rejuvenated KCCA Boxing Club enjoyed a sweeping victory in the ongoing boxing league.
KCCA punched their way to second place in the nine-team event after garnering 32 points at Lugogo on Sunday.
Namungoona side COPAB top the standings with 35 points after five engagements.
However, Lukanga Boxing Club head coach Isaac ‘Zebra’ Senyange has vowed to give COBAP and KCCA boxers a run for their own money.
But Senyange who has guided Lukanga to fifth place on 20 points behind Police and Katwe after only two engagements says the league title is theirs to take.
“This is not a bad start. We are ready to gun for the title,” remarked Senyange.
“The current leaders are there keeping places for us. They should remember that we (Lukanga) are East African Club Champions” he added.
KCCA edged out Lukanga in their last encounter on Sunday with Denis Mulindwa and Dan Ssemujju beating injured Meddie Lubega and Tonny Mukiibi in light heavyweight and welterweight respectively.
Flyweight Allan Sserwanga and lightweight Wasswa Ssali scored for Lukanga after outboxing Juma Milo and Joshua Nyanzi respectively.
Bantamweight Nasir Bashir underlined KCCA’s good welfare and drills after beating Tadeo Baruk into submission.
