MOTOR mouthed kick boxer Moses Golola lived to the expectations of his fans and made a point to the public that he is the undisputed king of kick boxing in Uganda when he beat Ronald Mugula by points decision at Freedom City on Saturday morning.

Two judges ruled in favour of Golola while the third gave a draw (50-48, 49-47, 49-49) in the five round contest supervised by President of Uganda Kickboxing Federation Hassan Sekirime.

In the non-title fight that was watched by close to 7,000 people who thronged the Freedom City Arena, Golola showed he has made a big improvement in his approach to the game, starting with confidence and tactics that were reflected throughout the five rounds in the low kick style fight.

In the event that started at 1:30am amidst cheers from fans of both fighters, Golola showed his experience by attacking Mugula from the onset using his kicks and blows effectively.

Blocking tactical kicks from Germany-based Mugula and avoiding slipping were also Golola’s added advantages that scored him points.

Golola capitalized mainly on boxing after getting tips from the boxing fraternity led by new coach and seasoned boxer Zebra Senyange.

“I told all my fans that I would beat this man despite his experience. Thanks to my new Coach Zebra Senyange, I was stable and I no longer fall in the ring. The sky will be the limit and I will tell the next program,” said jubilant Golola after the win.

He raised his record to 24 fights and 12 wins.

“The fight was tough. I thank my fans and I have showed them what I have, but I have to go by the decision of the judges,” said demoralized Mugula who wrote the 14th loss in his boxing career.

He now has 64 fights, 45 wins and 14 losses with 6 draws.

“Golola has corrected his game and fought bravely after improving his game but I would have declared the fight a draw,” said UPDF and Kampala University fighter Titus Tugume who lost to Golola by a knock out last year.

“I give the fight to Golola,” noted another kickboxing champion John Tumukunde also from UPDF.  

In the undercards, Shafiq Mubiru’s win against Tom Ndugga and ring Gen. Farouk Bukenya beating Hamza Fungu were other close contests.
