Reigning National Champion Mansoor Bwanika had no soft words to fierce rival Ibra Sejjemba after humiliating Joseph Kasozi.
Seed Four (4) Bwanika defeated Seed Three (3) Kasozi (21-11) three days ago in the battle that was played at Eden Yard, Kisubi -Entebbe road to take home Uganda Shillings two (2) million.
It was a sweet revenge for Bwanika who lost the first battle to Kasozi in 2019 and they are now tied 1-1 on series.
Minutes after downing Kasozi, the soft left handed star asked for a rematch with currently Uganda’s finest pool player.
I earlier had the Sejjemba challenge which I lost unconvincingly in the decider but am happy the extensive training I had paid off by comfortably defeating Kasozi. Something I know very well is that, am the best player in the country and I have to be seed one no doubt. I had slightly removed the foot off the pedal but am back stronger and I need Ibra ‘dead or live’ for the rematch, I must repeat it, I need him for the rematch because am the best. Mansoor told Sports256 in an exclusive interview
Sejjemba bagged 4 million shillings after edging Bwanika 21-20 in the last clash when the later hosted at Sseguku.
Bwanika, believes he is still the best on land having won the last Car and national title when he was crowned the Nile Special open championship in 2018.
Bwanika, also won the Grand open tournament at Pot It which is the only Pool Association of Uganda organised tournament this year.
We are yet to know if we shall have a Mansoor Vs Kasozi rematch or Mansoor Vs Sejjemba first.
The commencement of the 2021/22 national league will depend on the directives of the president of country.
The Pool Cranes that had to travel to Zambia next month, will have to wait until March next year for the All Africa Pool championship.
