Baye Ma Ndiaye is due to fight Boy Balla in a duel arranged by prominent Disk Jokey and TV presenter Lamin Champions Sound –an encounter to be witnessed by dethroned Senegalese King of Arena Balla Gaye II and other personalities.
However, with days from the grand event, prominent wrestlers in the country are flocking to render tactical support on an occasion they consider one of their own.
Invited Senegalese wrestlers have always outshined their Gambian counterparts in Boreh Dorr –a type of wrestling mixed with boxing – in recent years. Kartuss and Zoss had Gambian aces Africain Nouha and Jinneh Morri packing during their invitation to the country.
And, determined to systematically turn the tables around, a legion of Gambian wrestlers have teamed up to ensure Senegalese trend of dominance is deflated out this time by helping Boy Balla with training regimes.
Manduwar and Jinneh Morri are among wrestlers working with Boy Balla, a source tells Foroyaa Sport.
Meanwhile, Baye Ma Ndiaye has spoken vowing to undo his opponent. He’s tagged as favourite on paper but in Boy Balla whom he knows little about, he could be in for a delirious surprise according to pundits.
Ama and Balla are expected to arrive in Banjul on the day of the contest on October 25th at the Independence Stadium.
