Gambia’s Fatty Set for MMA Fight in France


By Sulayman Bah

Junior Karanta Fatty a Gambian Mixed Martial Arts star is billed to fight in Paris, France, Foroyaa Sport understands.

The 25-year-old returns to the cage November 25th up against Soufiane Boukichou in the MMA Factory tournament.

Born in Gothenburg Sweden, to a Norwegian mother and a Gambian father, Fatty, goes into the duel in top shape after trouncing Adel Ghaddou in nine seconds in London, last month.

That combat was his first after many years and having seen his proposed clash with UK-based Sam Stockdale called off inexplicably.

Tipped a fast-rising heavyweight, Karanta, in that fight descended on Adel, first landing a right hander before unleashing body shots forcing the referee to bring the fight to an end.

A certified vehicle mechanic, Junior opted to take up MMA as his way –a decision influenced by his winning of gold in the Swedish National Championship in 2005.
