A Gambian wrestler was over the weekend held shoulder high by supporters after his revenge in defeating a Senegalese visiting wrestler.Manduwar, a member of Gambia wrestling national team, has succeeded in
his revenge against Lichorr from Senegal after having lost to him last
year.
Lichor was declared winner, on refereeing verdict, in a controversial
combat. However, in order to revenge for the lost to silence critics,
Manduwar decided to have a go at the Cassamance-based wrestler in
another rematch – being the third between the two in a period of two
years.
Staged by Gumbo Promotions at the Kukujang wrestling arena and before
a huge delirious crowd, amid chanting, Manduwar fantastically brought
the lengthy bout to a halt pulling his adversary by the hand towards
the ground and quickly entangling his leg which sent Lichor helplessly
sprawling.
Saturday’s encounter was Manduwar’s second victory in a row at
Kunkujang since his triumph over Big-Tree last month at the SK West
mini-stadium.
