Renown fighter Golola Moses has told Abas ‘Kasumali’ Ongom to expect fire ahead of their Boxing duel set on this year’s Heroes Day – Sunday, June 9.
Golola, a man known for both his strong words and actions in the ring, warned Kasumali during the fight’s launch at Wilson Street in Kampala, the same place which shall host the much anticipated fight.
Speaking to the press and the gathered city crowd, ‘of Uganda’ as he prefers to call himself, ranted:
“I want him to be first medically checked before entering the ring because I don’t want Kasumali to die because of my punches.
“I don’t want to beat him and his wife start coming to me asking for forgiveness. I will on that day also prove it that he has a small ‘Kasumali’.”
The fight, organised by Step by Step, can be seen as a build up to Golola’s rematch with Umar Semata which will be held on July 27th, this year.
Golola’s recent fight saw him beat Michael Odyambo in April at Boma Grounds in Hoima.
The fighter has had more Kick-boxing fights than Boxing and it might be an added advantage for Kasumali. Golola beat Saidi Chako (2016) among some of his few boxing fights.
Speaking ahead of the 75Kg weight title fight, Kasumali briefly noted:
“Golola’s days are numbered, am ready to fight him. There is no excuse, he is in trouble and am just waiting for the start bell.”
Kasumaali has won three fights including the one he destroyed Oswald Maneno, the man who is remembered to have beaten Godfrey Nyakana.
His loss came against Baba-Bana, in 2014, his last victim being the popular.
“It is a first of its kind,” Uganda Professional Boxing President Salim Uhuru reflected on the street fight which is going to be held at Wilson street. We shall be celebrating Heroes day on the street as People of Kampala central.”
“We had a challenge with Step by Step when they organised an event which took place till dawn which put people’s lives at risk, but I promise you that time is paramount and they are to follow regulations.”
It should be noted that this fight was initially supposed to be held on last year’s Boxing day at Aponye Mall but Golola’s weight exceeded the required, it was alleged.
