Today evening, all roads lead to the Commonwealth Resort, Munyonyo where Uganda’s Moses Golola takes on American Richard Abraham who is already in the country alongside coach Christopher Cichon. Abraham will take on Golola for the intercontinental Middleweight – 75Kg / 165 lbs title. Golola says he will be fighting to defend the pride of Africa.
“It will be disrespectful for this title to leave Africa,” Golola said in a press briefing earlier this week. “I will not only be representing Uganda alone but the whole of Africa. I will try to defend the pride of Africa,”
The event organised by Suudi promotions, was pushed forward by a week after the two camps of the fighters failed to agree over money issues. Abraham’s team had accused Golola’s camp of being dishonest to them.
Golola who is confident as usual was in bullish mood when he vowed ‘to break Abraham into pieces’. He even showed up at the press briefing with the coffin that will be used to “bury” his American counterpart.
“Like l always say, I am a one-man army fighter and will do my best to prove that I am the number one kickboxing champion in Africa,” he said. “This is a war between Uganda and America. We shall settle it in the ring.”
This will be the first time the motor-mouthed kickboxer is returning to the ring after defeating Ronald Mugula in March at Freedom City. American Abraham is an experienced fighter and will provide Golola with a stunner test and Golola will have to be at his best to stand a chance.
Entry fee for the fight is 10,000/- for Ordinary and 20,000/= VIP.
