Golola in financial dispute with managers
By Swalley Kenyi
A dispute has erupted over money between kickboxer Moses Golola, his family on one side and his promoter Patrick Kanyomozi and manager Abbey Rafsanjani on the other.
Golola is demanding sh30m from gate collection at the fight on Friday night but the manager and promoter insists less money was collected because Golola’s family hijacked entrance to the venue of the fight and caused losses.

“I can confirm that there is a dispute involving the promoter (Kanyomozi) and Golola’s brother pastor Evans Mayambala. They brought bouncers to take over the gate and many people watched the fight for free,” Rafsanjani said Monday afternoon.
“However the promoter has told me he is still working out the money and Golola would be paid. It was a mess. I gave up my responsibility to keep my name,” Rafsanjani added.
The boxer is reportedly stuck at Hotel Africana waiting for the money. Golola and his promoter agreed to share 40 and 60 per cent respectively.
In an interview with The New Vision today ,Golola insisted he is the champion of the Inter-Continental kickboxing fight.
Moses Golola insists he is the winner of Friday’s Inter-Continental kickboxing championship against Hungarian Nagy Andras and refers to himself as ‘Moses Golola the Champion’.
