Interview: African Warriors head Maxwell Kalu talks Dambé surge

Dambé has been something we’ve been featuring more of recently courtesy of our What The Fight series, and it’s been gaining traction in recent years. One of the organizations making the biggest strides is African Warriors, which features both Dambé and wrestling events featuring African athletes.

The head of the organization, Maxwell Kalu, was kind enough to chat with BE and chop it up over how he got involved with combat sports, how he fell in love with Dambé specifically, and what strides they’ve made as an organization. Furthermore, we’ll dive into his love for the art and how it ties into a sense of African identity, as well as a visit from their recent VIP, UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
