Shafik Kiwanuka Vs Zimbabwe’s Thamsang Dube, billed as the Clash for Africa will take place on Friday 29th November at International University of East Africa Auditorium, Kansanga.

The two fighters will go toe to toe in the World Boxing Federation African heavyweight title fight.

The event will be graced by the World Boxing Federation president Howard Goldberg Ivor who touchdown in wee hours of Wednesday.

During a press conference held at IUEA on Wednesday morning both fighters promised an explosive fight.

Kiwanuka told the members of the media that is ready to rumble

“I am the Killing machine and am very ready to rumble. I have prepared well and I can’t wait for the fight night.” I take this opportunity to thank my University, Sponsors, trainers, managers and everyone who has put a hand in this fight.”

His opponent Dube is also confident ahead of the epic contest.

” I call upon everyone to come and see the Champion. I am very ready for the fight.”

Kiwanuka has already had two professional fights, both clear cut victories with knockouts against Kenyan David Kamara and Congolese Tyson Mbikayi.

Dube has 15 fights, with 12 wins,7KOs and 3 losses. The latter has however spent eight years absent from the sport but he does have the experience.

With the barbs coming from both Kiwanuka and Dube, there seems to finally be something tangible from each camp that points towards a potential fight happening under the lights of IUEA Auditorium.
