Senegal: wrestler’s staffers fight at press conference
The staff of the two most mediated Senegalese wrestlers, Yékini and Balla Gaye II, took to hands last Wednesday during and aborted press conference.
The athletes had a conjoined press conference in a hotel of nation’s capital in which the both arrived late.
At about 17H local time, few minutes after the wrestler took their seats at the high table, staff of both parties took on heated quarrel which degenerated into a fight. Fans and staff of both camps were wounded.
This is the second time a press conference opposing both athletes has been aborted after their last fight. The first was aborted due to Bella’s failure to turn up at the conference.
In such circumstances, some Senegalese journalists wonder whether the highly awaited fight between the two “gladiators” April 22 will be possible.
