The only man to climb Mountain Dew Ugandan kickboxer Moses Golola is in grave pain after being thumped into pulp by American kick boxer, Richard Abraham last night in an inter-continental fight at Munyonyo.
The American refused to be intimidated by Golola’s pre-fight comical stunts and registered a 35-50, 47-49 and 45-50 unanimously win.
According to the www.kawowo.com report, this inter-continental kick-boxing low kick fight could be simply tagged a ‘complete no – match’ as it turned out to be a one sided affair from start to finish.
Seldom do the fans call for the premature end of a fight – in the name of saving face for their fighter. The partisan Ugandan crowd did, twice calling for referee, Charles Wandera Mugoya to cease play – lest their fighter was ‘Killed’ in the ring.
The experienced American, coming into the fight with an enviable 35 victories in the 46 fights fought, threw every punch and kick to the motor razed Ugandan.
Technically gifted, Abraham’s supremacy was witnessed through his excellent guarding of the body and attacking expertise with well timed kicks and punches.
At one moment in the second round, Golola was punched hard as he staggered onto the ring ropes and he nearly fell out.
For the rest of the fight, Golola kissed the canvas not twice but thrice in each round and could only manage to punch Abraham’s face twice in the last round.
Prior to this fight, he had vowed to ‘kill’ Abraham in the ring and bury him as he carried a coffin in the pre-fight press conference at Centenary park.
Golola’s intended plans instead meant he required the coffin for his personal use as the American amassed 149 total points from the three judges compared to Golola’s 125.
By the ending signal of the final round, all the people at Munyonyo including Golola himself, were all awaiting for confirmation of Abraham’s victory.
Indeed it was, as all the judges concurred that the red corner [Richard Abraham’s] scored 149-125, as he celebrated around the ring.
Golola, in his typical comedian style promised a come back in a planned re-match.
“Many will say Golola has been beaten but this guy might have won but he has not beaten Golola,” he said, as the fans trekked home, many in agony, some debating the seriousness of the loose mouthed Ugandan.
