Apolot delivered the knocked out blow in just six seconds of the first round of the World Kick Boxing Federation International Title fight in Hungary on June 27th.
Mirkov is sixteenth on the World Federation women Lightweight category. Apolot told URN this morning that the fight was challenging because she was facing an opponent on unfamiliar ground.

Apolot also says her opponent weighed in a little heavier than her, which affected her psychologically.

She told URN that she is now focused on her upcoming African Continental fight in Kampala in August against Egypt's Fathia Mustafa.

Apolot attributed the past failure of the fight to lack of sponsorship. According to Apolot, the sport needs sponsorship to be able to meet the bills of the visiting fighter, which include an air ticket, accommodation and allowances.
She however, blamed this on the local federation saying it has not done enough to popularize the sport so as to attract big-time sponsors.
The Lightweight kick boxing champion encouraged young girls who would wish to take up the sport to believe in themselves and try out their talent.
