Lichor was declared winner, on refereeing verdict, in a controversial combat. However, in order to revenge for the lost to silence critics, Manduwar decided to have a go at the Cassamance-based wrestler in another rematch – being the third between the two in a period of two years. Staged by Gumbo Promotions at the Kukujang wrestling arena and before a huge delirious crowd, amid chanting, Manduwar fantastically brought the lengthy bout to a halt pulling his adversary by the hand towards the ground and quickly entangling his leg which sent Lichor helplessly sprawling. Saturday’s encounter was Manduwar’s second victory in a row at Kunkujang since his triumph over Big-Tree last month at the SK West mini-stadium.  ]]>
