Many have always said that Golola Moses is a big joke, and now, as it has turned out, he has elevated to an even bigger food crasher. Here is why;
Golola, the international world champion of Uganda in the presence of our snoop John Batanudde has Thursday eaten more food in a record 15 minutes that a normal person can need a week to finish – two roasted chicken, 4 large pawpaws and two jugs full of porridge!
Is that strange a lot? No, Golola now sleeps in Mabira forest. He has also warned his forthcoming opponent Emmanuel Shija of Tanzania to come ready to be beaten.
The two kick boxers face off in the East and Central Africa Kick Boxing fight dubbed ‘best of the best’ of the region at Crested Cranes Hotel in Jinja on Friday November 14.
“Emmanuel (Shija) stand warned. This is a fight I can’t afford to lose even when am dead asleep. I was beaten by that American (Abraham Richards) in the Old Testament but now am going to fight in the New Testament,” Golola vows.
On why he took the training to Mabira Forest of all places, Golola said it’s meant to give him maximum concentration.
“I nolonger want to talk to people but preffer monkeys because I want to return when I’ve jungle characteristics.I discovered that such an area will help give me maximum concentration. I live him leopards, monkeys and hippos among others and I love it. Everything is natural here and I love it.”
“My energy is now volcanic; it keeps erupting. I fear that if I look at a woman today she might experience a miscarriage before she conceives. I have to handcuff myself on my bed before I go to sleep because I fear I might kill Golola Moses,” he added.
Ugandan kickboxing fans left Speke Resort, Munyonyo disappointed after Golola was outclassed by visiting American Richard Abraham in September.
The motor-mouthed Ugandan fighter had promised Abraham a hiding in the build-up to the fight but found himself on the receiving end from start to finish of the five-round bout.
All the three judges on the night called the fight in favour of the American 50-45, 49-47, 50-45 as he was crowned the inter-continental champion. Maybe this time fighting an East African fighter and away in Kampala could be Golola’s easiest gamble back.
