Super-middleweight All-African Boxing Champion Gambia’s Foday Badjie has been accorded a chance to defend his belt.

One of the fastest rising boxing sensations of the country, Foday is yet to taste defeat since his first professional outing in Dakar.

He has followed that up by winning in the All African Boxing championship super-middleweight category when Gambia hosted it before defending his title against Sierra Leone’s star man Mohammed Sillah in recent months.

He shrugged off competition from Sillah in the sixth round in the 75kg keenly contested fight.
