Confusion still clouds the air in the aftermath of the controversial world kick-boxing title fight between Africa Super Middleweight kickboxing champion Moses “The African Assasin” Golola and Hungarian fighter Andras Nagy last Friday even after declaring the Ugandan kick boxer a “Winner”.
According to the World KickBoxing Federation website Hungary Andras Nagy is the new Inter
Continental Super Middleweight Champion with Moses Golola, the presumed winner of the controversial title fight on Friday only being ranked number 15 by the world body.
But his management team see things differently after agreeing to a rematch next year.
“Golola is the champion and under the confusion and controversy of the fight we agreed to a rematch here in Kampala for next year, and the new date for the fight is April 27 at Hotel Africana,” Elvis Mayambala, the manager of the Ugandan Kick Boxer said. “If we had lost the fight we would have a rematch in Hungary, but since we won the fight we shall have a rematch again.”
The Uganda Kick Boxing Federation and World Kickboxing Federation sanctioned fight that had the two fighters battling for the vacant Inter Continental Super Middleweight belt ended dramatically after seeing the Ugandan declared winner by the Master of Ceremonies Roger Mugisha, but the result was reversed by the WKF executive officer and president Fritz Exenberg in favour of Nagy however their was a rethink and later they declared Golola the winner.
The three judges had given the Ugandan fighter the fight with scores of 49-46,49-46,49-46. On the night of the fight it was announced that they had three judges which was wrong according to the UKBF president Hassan Sekilime, their where only two judges for the main event with one of the judges doubling to do scoring for who would be the third judge.
Incidently as the country is left with a bitter taste of the “joking” fight the World KickBoxing Federation has Andras Nagy as the champion of the fight while Moses Golola is ranked number 15 in the Super Middleweight Division.
“We need to have a seminar on Muay Thai KickBoxing for the judges, officials and our kickboxers,” Sekilime, the Uganda KickBoxing Federation president said. “We want to have a better fighter next year and we shall also make sure that Golola also attends this seminar.”
