The awaited kick boxing match between Uganda’s ‘Robot’ Speaker Moses Golola and Andres Naggy ended on a sad note for many Ugandans.
Golola ended up being the loser. The man who had promises to bring happiness to many Ugandans who are still in shock after losing out on the African Cup of nation could not leave up to his promise.
However, the kick boxing match ended in a controverycy as the Judges showed that Golola had won, while the referee said it was Naggy
The Master of Ceremony, Pastor Roger Mugisha announced a unanimous judges’ decision in favour of the Ugandan.
The win was quickly reversed by the referee, who gave the win to Naggy with the same points sparking off a protest from Golola’s technical team and fans.
Golola’s technical bench stormed the ring demanding that the match judges from Sudan and Kenya announce the result again. The three judges had given the winner 49-46 unanimous decision.
According to the Golola team “It should be the judges and not the referee to announce results. That was wrong decision.” They argued
More controversy came in when One of the Kenyan judges over ruled the referee, who doubles as the president of World Kickboxing Federation (WKF) president and Chief Executive officer Fritz Exenberger and gave the win again to Golola.
It was a real mess all up to the end since Exenberger, who had been accused by the angry fans and the Golala team had to be escorted out of the venue by top government security officers.
The judges insisted that Golola had won the match with 48-46, 49-46, 49-46 points
