Gambian boxer Foday Badjie’s proposed fight with Senegal’s champion Modou Baba Fall has been rescheduled, Foroyaa Sport understands.

The fight, being promoted by Adama Cisse, a Senegalese, was initially billed for November 17th in Senegal at the Souvanir, but has been postponed.

The contest, this publication gathers, is called off due to Gamo scheduled to be staged at the proposed venue.

December 16th is the new date now chosen for the combat.

The duel is aimed at offering the Gambian – who’s fighting outside the country for the first time – chance to turn professional but he must attain a certain boxing time or beat Fall who’s also Senegal’s champion in the 75kg category to attain his dream.

The combat is being held in commemoration of Mendela Day in Senegal and the winner scoops the Mandela Belt on stake.

Foday is yet to taste defeat boasting twelve wins in thirteen combats with only a single draw to his name.

However, December’s event, certainly serves as a litmus test and provokes the begging question whether Badjie can rise up to the occasion with a professional opponent now standing in his path.
