Reports reaching eyeonthenews.com say wrestling fans will get the best of the sport when African wrestlers tango in the Pro Wrestling Africa (PWA)’s Battle of Yaounde 2015.
Organisers of the event said wrestlers from Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Liberia, Mali and Congo DRC among others are set for the Battle of Yaounde, scheduled to hold at the Palaise De Sports, Yaoundé in Cameroon on 19 September, 2015.
It was gathered that the main bout will be featuring Mr. Peace “Power Lee De Great” the Nigerian heavyweight champion and title holder, competing against Michel Noudem “Le Matrquer” the Cameroonian heavyweight champion and title holder as well.
“The efforts are now geared towards having a real African wrestling champion and the Pro Wrestling Africa (PWA), the wrestling promoting outfit with headquarter in Yaoundé, Cameroon has taken the bull by the horns to see to this timely event and promote the fight”, the organisers told eyeonthenews.com in a press release.
Earlier, a press conference was held in Yaoundé on 20 July, 2015, which was well attended by executive members of PWA, the host organization as well as sports dignitaries and personalities of the French nation based in Central Africa, where Nigerian heavyweight champion and title holder Mr. Peace “Power Lee De Great” was able to raise up his head against Michel Noudem “Le Matraqueur”, the Cameroonian Heavyweight Champion and title holder.
“Power Lee is seeking support from the federal government as the Nigerian champion and from the Delta State Government, his state of origin and Isoko North in Delta State, where he hails from”, the statement said.
The organisers further stated; “Support from other organizations like Isoko Development Union, Isoko people in Diaspora, NDDC, DESOPADEC, well meaning Nigerians and Deltans in particular would be appreciated because he will definitely have to defend the title in Nigeria within a month if he wins in Cameroon, and the support of Delta state government in particular and the Nigerian government in general will make him achieve this and also enable PWA to host the rematch in Nigeria”.
“Power Lee, who has a modern Gym in Ajah, “Winners Body Fitness Gym”, where the PWA Press Conference will hold on 27 August, also want to showcase to the world what he has individually been able to contribute to sports promotion and development in our part of the world even at his own level at the grassroots.
“At this training center, he has produced many weightlifters, body builders, wrestlers, boxers, and where dignitaries as well as others come to, in an effort to keep fit and shed off weight. Nigeria as a country and Delta as a state need to see what Power Lee has personally contributed to sports in his immediate community at large even in his own ways.
According to Olusesan Olukoya, Secretary of the organization, “Pro Wrestling Africa, (PWA) has been set up to be the mouthpiece of African wrestling internationally and getting organization’s heavyweight champion at this point is timely and of paramount importance”.
