Balla is due to take on the club Tay Shinger’s flag-bearer in a revenge match this April.
Christened Omar Saho, the man dubbed the Lion of Guediawaye, bit the dust to a then established Eumeu in what was the pair’s first meeting.
In the latest face-to-face encounter on television in the duo’s respective homes, the first of its kind – Balla has vowed to thrash his opponent in just one minute, a comment Eumeu Sene merely laughed off.
Making reference to Eumeu’s bloody arena battle with Gri Bordeaux, the two-season Senegal King of the Arena said: “I urge you to stay firm and be ready to fight me the same way. You’ll surely come down crashing.”
Responding to the threat, a composed Eumeu retorted, “I know what it involves and means to be going out on a revenge showdown and you can be assured of a heated battle.”
Both wrestlers enter the show on the back of defeats. Eumeu lost to Modou Lo and Balla against current champion Bombardier.
Staged by wrestling promoter Luc Nicolai and Co, the battle for television rights of this would-be thriller has been immense before Tfm finally secured the go-ahead.
