* Motor-mouthed Golola to battle Kasumali in heart of Kampala City street on Heroes Day

The long awaited boxing fight between Moses “Of Uganda” Golola and Abas Kizito “Kasumali” Ongom has been confirmed for the National Heroes Day, 9th June 2019 along the busy Wilson street in the heart of the capital city, Kampala.

This fight, which had been scheduled earlier but it did not materialize will be unique in a way of because of its venue.

To set the ball rolling, a special press conference has been held at the exact proposed venue (Wilson Street) on Thursday, May 23, 2019.

Business in the Kampala city Central Business District (CBD) came to a standstill during the entire duration of the press conference as the sports journalists engaged Golola, Kasumali as well as the organizers.

In typical flamboyant style, Golola reechoed his determination to floor Kasumali.

Golola Moses is not a joking subject. Kasumali has been buying time but it is time to face him and beat him up
