Ugandan boxer, Moses Golola, wrote another record last night when he knocked out a Thai boxer, Kamsvutorn Wathaporn, in less than a minute.
The fight held at Kati Kati Lugogo was something many Ugandans have not seen in recent years.
Witnesses say it lasted less than a minute, 55 seconds to be exact.
Held in the ‘middleweight’ in 75.5 kilo gram category, the win gave Golola the World Kickboxing Lightweight “K One Style” championship.
It has already been equated to the legendary 1997 fight between Uganda’s Justin Juuko and Martin Ramirez.
Staged in Kampala, boxer Justin Juuko knocked out Ramirez in the first round.
Golola rewrote history by effecting such a feat on a Thai fighter.
As Kamsvutorn kissed the floor, Golola broke into a dance, throwing kicks in the air, left and right.
“I want to thank my fans for giving me all the support,” he said after the fight.
“I told you that am not a joking subject,” the motor-mouthed boxer was at his old game again.
Moses Golola (Born 22 May 1980) is a Ugandan self-made celebrity, entertainer, and kickboxer known for building his personal brand.
His 2011 fight against Abdul Qadir Rahim managed to attract the largest attendance in Uganda.
He was also given the lead role in the Ugandan movie Christmas in Kampala.
Golola is known for his humorous personality and flamboyant showmanship, traits which have helped him to popularize the sport of kickboxing in Uganda and helped him to gain a large fan following.
He is the Kickboxing Champion of East and Central Africa having emerged winner in a controversial match against Hungarian Andras Nagy on 9 December 2011.
