Nyaha Jairinyu of Club Mara needed less than two minutes to wrestle down Komie Junior of Club Serekunda Mbolo in the grand combat of the event organised by Dorlel Lamba Promotion at the Sanchaba Lower Basic School's Ground on Sunday 8th May 2022.

A lot was at stake for the two upcoming wrestlers after both endured heartbreaking defeats in their previous combats.

In the earlier bouts which were in freestyle wrestling: Chart of Club Yanda Mbaye defeated Maga Dan of Club Sukutankulu. Samareh of Club Jeff Jel wrestled down Nyangorr. Messi of Club Tallinding United continued his impressive run with victory over Bebe Nyolo of Yundum Mbolo while Boy Serrer of Kerr Serign Mbolo defeated Gorr Fit of Serekunda Mbolo.
