KAMPALA. Moses Golola usually beats his opponents in trash talk battles and his usually meek opponents seek to revenge on the canvas. But comedian-cum-boxer Ongom Kizito, a.k.a Kasumaali, wants to match Golola on both fronts.
Kasumaali avoids one-on-one exchanges with the motor-mouth Golola and waits for his turn in front of the camera to counter each of his opponent’s outrageous claims.
“We’ve been checked, we are both in fine health. I won’t tolerate any more excuses. Tell Golola that if he dodges this fight again, wherever I shall find him, whether in Owino Market or Bwaise, I’ll punch him there and then,” Kasumaali threatened ahead of their non-title duel in the middle of Wilson Road on Heroes Day.
The two were meant to fight on the Muhammad Ssebyala-Badru Lusambya undercard on December 26, 2018 but did not because they failed to match in weight. Each camp has since accused the other of avoiding the fight.
“Golola is big in my absence. I swear if he beats me I will retire from boxing,” Kasumaali vowed.
“I will come to teach him boxing. And if he can’t handle the pressure, good enough the AAR ambulance will be standby.”
According to BoxRec, the official international boxing record site, Kasumaali has won three of his only four fights, since his debut on April 28, 2013. His only loss was a KO against Haruna Diba Hassan, aka Bana-Bana on May 31, 2014. And his biggest and last fight was a six-round unanimous decision victory over Maneno Oswald—the renowned Tanzanian who retired Godfrey Nyakana—on November 20, 2015 in Nakivubo Stadium.
Golola claims to be unbeaten in five pro boxing fights, but BoxRec, knows only one.
