SHARIF Bukenya was rudely awakened to the fact that he still has a lot to do if he is to make a serious challenge on the kickboxing scene.

Bukenya had promised to upset Jusilla but he was the one on the receiving end in the WKF Inter-continental welterweight title fight.
He had however started well in the first round but lost his kicking power deep in the second round.
In the third round, the attacks had his gum shield falling out.
He was then knocked out in the fourth round.
