John Wayne Parr Vs Toby Smith Fight Video

  • Published in Muay Thai

Powerplay Promotions put John Wayne Parr's WKA world middleweight title up for grabs on June 21st at the Melbourne Pavillion against a young, hungry Toby "The Weapon" Smith.

From the first bell it was shocking to see how strong and sturdy Toby Smith was, its not often that you see a big, strong fighter like JWP get pushed around like that. Parr threw some fast flurries anytime he had the chance but he just couldn't get Smith to move backwards and just always ended up stuck in the corner. In the Third round Toby had JWP pushed up against the ropes again and was moving forward like a man on a mission, clinching, kneeing and elbowing non stop. He landed a left hook that appeared to stagger John Wayne momentarily and then put him in a strange position perfect for Smith to whack him with an upward, left elbow which sent John Wayne Parr to the mat with a look of agony on his face. Turned out that the elbow broke JWP's orbital bone, crushed his sinus, and opened a cut that needed 5 stitches putting Parr at accumulative total of 280 stitches in his face alone.

Amazing performance from the new WKA middleweight world champion Toby Smith and we wish John Wayne Parr a speedy recovery you are an inspiration to many.

Powerplay Promotions 22 Tonight: Featuring JWP

  • Published in Muay Thai

JWP

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.

Caged Muay Thai Returns This Weekend

  • Published in Muay Thai

Legend John Wayne Parr was supposed to retire a long time ago, but he had this crazy idea to take muay thai and put it inside of a cage while wearing MMA gloves. Of course, he wouldn't ask someone to do something like that if he wasn't prepared to and he did just that. Since then the Caged Muay Thai shows have taken off big time in Australia and this weekend they return for Caged Muay Thai 5: Lidon vs. Badato.

The event will be streamed live via GFL.tv.
