KAMPALA.

Kick boxer Moses Golola, returned from a private training session in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, with one message; to knock out Ronald Mugula in their upcoming non-title fight.

Dubbed ‘The undisputed kickboxing king in Uganda’ the fight is scheduled to take place on Friday at Freedom City, Kampala.
Golola, whose return paralysed traffic on Entebbe Road for hours, promised his fans a treat and says ‘Mugula will go the same way Titus Tugume went.’
“I will knock Mugula out in the first round, just like l did to Tugume,” Golola told Daily Monitor.

“I am the only kickboxing cock in Uganda and I don’t want to hear another cock crowing. I will hit that German Shepherd (Mugula) on the chin and put him to sleep.”

In his last fight held in September, Golola knocked out Tugume within 62 seconds to retain his East and Central Africa Championship belt before getting a contested win against Romanian Zoltan Poczo in November.
Mugula on the other hand lost his world intercontinental welterweight title to Egyptian Abdallah Hessen in January.
