It is now three months since the President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni banned all sporting activities as one of the measures to overcome the spread of the global Coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the horrible COVID-19 shutdown, many athletes in the country have been affected with no competitive sporting events taking place.
Kickboxer Isma Mutebi “Assassin” however, can’t wait to blast out the lockdown once the government gives greenlight to resumption of sports in the country.
“I am extremely confident that things will come back to normal and we start organising several fights. I have been affected by the situation in the country since I have not been in the ring for three months but when the lockdown is eased I will be able to have a competitive fight.”
The Bantamweight kickboxing fighter has 30 fights, 29 wins and one draw. In 2016, he won a gold medal in the International Championship held in Egypt and in 2018.
Mutebi also claimed the Extra Combart East African Bantamweight belt at the event that was held at Lugogo.
