Battle of technique: Yekini, Lac face-off Sunday

By Sulayman Bah

Yahya diop dubbed, Yekini will return to the arena for the first time in four years with Lake Guier 2 his latest Yekini Lacopponent this Sunday.

Jaol-born Yekini left the sacks following his shock defeat to Balla Gaye II in 2012. It was the former King of Arena’s first humbling in 17 years of wrestling. That loss, in April, was also the first time Lac 2 also bit the dust weeks before.

The contest scheduled for July 24th this Sunday, is brokered by Aziz Ndiaye Promotion coming on the heels of much negotiations. The combat, dubbed the clash of technique, will be Yekini’s, one of the oldest wrestlers of recent, first battle after four years as he attempts to at least secure a win before retiring.

Lac 2, revered but mostly under estimated, has vowed to hand Yekini a bitter return and revenge for his boss Muhammed Ali whom the Joal-born Yaha Diop overcame on medical decision in a previous fight.

Lac enters this duel on the back of win over Papa Sowe.
