Courting million viewers from around the world, it was a revenge-seeking bout for Balla Gaye in a bid to make amend for his defeat to Eumeu in the early moments of what would later be a boisterous wrestling career.
Balla vowed to undo Eumeu in which the erstwhile Mohammed Ndao Tyson’s understudy replied with a gesture of the hand flaunting two fingers, insisting he will replicate the victory he inflicted on Balla six years ago.
The stakes were high for both wrestlers as it was coming on the heels of defeat they suffered in their immediate past combats.
However, the pre-match bragging formalities aside, and after whistle of the referee, it was Eumeu who had tongues waging by routing Balla Gaye in the most spectacular of defeats mixed with merciless free flowing blows.
The thumping of Balla Gaye on Sunday evoked a floodgate of views amid suggestions that the man named Omar Sakho has ran out of steam.
Earlier on Saturday, Tapha Tine reduced a ridiculously overweight Gouye Gui to a punching bag before walking from behind to send him sprawling helplessly on the ground in what was the second match of a four-man mini-tournament.
The first combat saw Ama Balde trouncing Zoss. Tapha will now meet Ama Balde in a final.
