Community Based Aids Programs (Cobap) took an early lead in the on-going National Junior Open Championship at Centenary Park on Wednesday.
Cobap scored 25 points on Day One after wins from bantamweight pugilist Galivin Mwanje and Rogers Musoke to go top of the standings.
They are followed by Zana Boxing Club which produced the first knockout of the tournament after Isaac Kawuna put Nakivubo’s Mark Lubowa on the canvas within only a minute of play in the light welter weight category.
“It is tough getting victory here,” said Kawuma shortly after his triumph. “It is like a race and I am really delighted to have won my first match.
I cannot wait for the next bouts.” Naguru-based East Coast Boxing Club also sent a resounding message after two bouts that involved their fighters.
They achieved first round wins. Club official Fazil Juma said that they are working towards winning many titles.
