    Background: A team of top black international wrestlers came to Lusaka ??? Zambia's capital - -for the first time on Thursday (7 November) night.

    Wrestling is a popular sport in the country and the crowd was well pleased with he evening's programme.

    The evening opened wit ha close-fought battle between Kid Chocolate -- Jamaica's Lightweight Champion -- and the Dominican Republic's Middleweight Champion, Alan Bardoville. The result was a draw.

    Next on the programme, a contest between the local Middleweight Champion -- John Mwale -- and Johnny Kwango of the Central African Republic. Kwango is a leading television personality in Baaing, but he could not match the Zambian's skill and determination and lost after a knock-out.

    The high spot of the evening was a bout between Masamboula, the Heavy-weight Champion of gambia, and Prince Kumali, the Guyanan Heavyweight Champion, who is called (with geographic licence) the 'Lion of Africa'. After six hard-fought rounds, Kumali gained the winning pinfall.
