Nakawa’s Frank Kasozi smacked Gayita Ronald of Cobap BC in the flyweight 51kgs category of the Boxing champions league at the mtn Arena, yesterday in Lugogo.
Gayita came into the contest as the big bull from week 16 where he stopped Ssozi Ezra in the third round but flunked to stop a well-composed Kasozi in this one.
After an explosive round one and two from Gayita, Kasozi amplified his game in round three with a series of three punches and a jab while maintaining his composure and body distance, a system that proved difficult for Gayita to tame down.
“I remained calm in the first round as I tried to study the style he had come with this time. I didn’t score alot in the second round because I knew he (Gayita) starts to play in the third round so I was saving some gas.” Kasozi said after the fight.
Gayita asserted the fight was unfairly ruled after losing on a 4:1 split decision in this bout of week 18.
“I am not happy with the result because I am used to winning and I beat “the kid” in every round. I am starting to think my fights are bought off and the referees are paid for my losses because everyone present could see that I won this fight. Changes need to be done.” Gayita told Afrosports.
“No doubt Frank put up a good resistance holding up till round five but I scored more than he did.” He emphasized, adding on that the match has taught him a lesson which is not to let his opponents survive past the third round as they are awarded for perseverance and therefore warned his next prey to watch out for what’s coming at them.
