NEW boxing sensation national lightweight champion Peter â€œBoyz Boyzâ€ Semo will meet Zambiaâ€™s Matthew Chifupeni in an Africa lightweight title fight on Saturday at Nakivubo Stadium.
Semo will feature as a support fight on the â€œStrike on Manenoâ€ main event that will see Badru Lusambya of Uganda taking on Tanzaniaâ€™s Oswald Maneno.
â€œI have been training for three months and I am in my best shape ever for this fight,â€ Semo said last week after a training session at Nakivubo gym.
The Ugandan fighter goes into the duel riding on an impressive round of two knockouts against Chaurembo Palasa of Tanzania late last year. The wins brought his record to 8-0-0(6 KOs)while Chifupeni is 11-0-2(3 KOs).
There are seven support fights at the Gobtex International show and sponsored by Property Masters who offered sh0.1m to all fighters who win by knockout.
