One of the fastest rising boxing sensations in Gambia, Badjie is now asking for sympathy and support from the public. This is due to the current Gambia Boxing Association, who are responsible for handling such issues, which split over leadership problems.
Badjie hasn’t lost since his first professional outing, in Dakar. He has followed that up by winning in the title when Gambia hosted Sierra Leone’s Mohammed Sillah last May.
This time, he will face Central African Republic’s champion Selebongue Bienvenue Ropson. The bout is scheduled for November 24 in Mali.
