Kampala- Uganda’s light welter weight professional boxer Fred Muhumuza extended his unbeaten run to five straight victories after overcoming Kenyan Patrick Amote in a 10-round Africa title qualifier at Club Obligatto on Friday night.
Amote was at the receiving end of several hard punches and started bleeding from the nose as early as the fourth round due to Muhumuza’s well-timed powerful jabs that landed onto the face of the Kenyan pugilist.
Muhumuza, who was facing an opponent outside Uganda for the first time, said that he fears no one in his weight. “My dream is to become an African champion,” he said.
