When I first started doing this whole writing about Kickboxing and Muay Thai thing years ago part of what made it so frustrating is that a lot of the events that I'd be writing about just wouldn't be viewable to most of the audience reading the site -- including myself. It's been the biggest bummer, but over the last few years the internet has really been helping to reshape this. With better internet connections available in more places this has led to streams becoming a more normal thing, allowing for fans all over the world to catch their favorite fighters in action.
One of those fighters who has been hard for us Westerners to catch has been John Wayne Parr. JWP, as we lovingly call him, has been around for a while now and is without dispute one of the best fighters in the world at 75kg fighting in Muay Thai internationally. He fights tonight in Australia and thanks to Epicentre.tv you can watch it live! It goes down at 4am Eastern time tonight and will set you back $14.95, but that's the price for watching some solid action.
The main event is JWP vs. Brad Riddell after Cosmo Alexandre failed to apply for a visa in time for the fight. Bummer.
