Moses “Of Uganda” Golola and Kassim “The Dream” Ouma’s long-awaited fight will happen in May 2023 (exact date to be confirmed), the organizers Step-By- Step Promotion World-wide have officially announced on Tuesday, January 24, 2023.

What started as a mere joke has been eventually realized into a realistic bout that will be held in the heart of Kampala city at Aponye Mall, overlooking the old taxi park.

The announcement was executed at the Food Court Restaurant on Aponye City Mall as the two fighters (Golola and Ouma), accompanied by their representatives and fans addressed the enthusiastic media.

Golola was donned in a cultural attire with his world championship belt in the waist as he held a calabash and a well knitted traditional pouch bag.

In a typical bullish and comical mood, Golola, wooed the gallery as he chorused many of his known catch-phrases.

He also reserved calories to sing aloud Bobi Wine’s “You are number one” song, a military song and his very own “Tempering the Hot Temper”.

Golola, a self- styled boxer-cum-kick aggressive boxer vowed to knock down Ouma, a former IBF Junior world champion before the 10 rounds that will have entire fight.

I am the number one. I have trained well and well-tuned from the anthers to the stigma. I will camp in a forest (Mabira) after training in several gyms around Kampala. Ouma (Kassim) cannot complete the 10 rounds. He will fall down before the 10 rounds. We call upon the fans to come and grace this fight.
