Dambe (Traditional Boxing)

Dambe or traditional boxing is a well-known sport in northern cities like Sokoto. It is almost similar with Kokawa but there are minute differences. The players in traditional boxing usually have one of their fists wrapped with a bandage while the other fist is free. It is a combative sport that is fought within a sand-filled circle and players will be disqualified if they step out of the circle.
