On Sunday two of the biggest fighters in Senegambia wrestling meet for a grudge fight at the Léopold Sédar Senghor stadium in Dakar.

The lead up to the fight has been marred by controversies and clashes between their rival supporters.

In this highly anticipated rematch Modou Lo is looking to avenge his defeat to Balla Gaye in just 19 seconds – the fastest defeat in the history of the sport.

During the pre-fight press conference the two fighters traded barbs.
“Your supporters are the ones hyping you up, but you and I know I’m not your match,” Balla Gaye taunted his opponent.

“If we were placed in a corner, you will take to your heels,” Modou Lo retorted.

Lo was earlier reported to have boasted: “a man with two wives will never beat me.” Balla Gaye apparently laughed it off as trash talk.

The fight, dubbed the fight of the decade, is already the talk of the town with millions expected to watch it in Senegambia and beyond via pay-per-view.
Each of the fighters will pocket 40 million CFA Franc.
