The punching action called “Dambe” has its roots in the fundamentals of Egyptian boxing: on preserved hieroglyphs from the 40th century B.C., scholars have made out the silhouettes of fist-fighting warriors wearing leather armbands.

Subsequently, the tough spectacle from the land of the pharaohs faded away in Egypt but gained popularity in West Africa. There, in the stuffy cities of Nigeria and Chad, “Dambe” has found an audience, spreading over the Internet and letting the sports community know that it’s worth paying attention to. 

Believe us, the sport is just as popular in Nigeria as soccer. The time is not far off when it will appear in the arsenal of bookmakers, of which 22Bet is sure to be one. And then it will become clear what is in great demand: 22Bet football betting or “Dambe”.

The History of the Sport

By the way, chaos is one of the main concepts in the dyke. That was the ancient name for the butchers who roamed the villages of the area to help the villagers with the meat supply… And gave incredible performances that resembled a ritual. The battles were held according to far more crazy rules: they wrapped their arms in metal decorations and dipped them in broken glass, while their legs were covered in chains so that on the battlefield the fighters fought not so much for the prize, but their lives.

Over time, the rules underwent serious changes. From the old butchers, the dyke went to the people, and the “arenas” began to be occupied by a different kind of house: the rabid youths. Perverted methods of violence like fine glass, spikes, and blades were a thing of the past; marijuana was used as relaxation before a fight, to ease the pain of harsh blows to the skull.

The basic rules of the “Dambe” are:

  1. Fighting can only be done with one hand (“spear”) and feet – the second hand is used as a defense (“shield”).
  2. The fights are stopped only in three cases: knockdown/knockout, the passivity of the fighters, surrender of the contestant.
  3. The fight lasts three rounds (but there is no time limit).
  4. “Leading” arm and leg can only be in belts and/or ropes. All amulets and other paraphernalia must either be hidden under the “harness” or not used at all.
  5. Tournaments are held in a playoff format: the loser is eliminated, while the triumphant goes on.
  6. No weight categories – opponents are chosen by eye.
  7. Any part of the body is allowed to be hit.
  8. No defense.

Is There a Future for Such Shows?

As there is a future in all fields where money starts to come in. The fighting men may earn in the dam (from 100 to 500 or even thousands of dollars per tournament, an exorbitant amount for the African province), the spectators (bookmakers’ bets are flourishing and with them bribery and fixing of athletes) and, of course, the organizers themselves (tickets, percentage of proceeds from the participants). In Africa, they believe that thanks to the frenzied popularity on the “black continent,” the dam will make its way to Europe, Asia, and the United States in the coming years.

Dambé is one of the most popular combat sports in Africa. Unofficially there are already competitions for it in Great Britain and Japan. Locals really want to see “Dambe” become an international sport. Like judo, taekwondo or karate. Their dream is to see Dambé appear in the Olympics and bring their cultural heritage to the world.
