On Friday, Nov. 30, under the bright lights of Brisbane’s CBUS Super Stadium, Australia’s John Wayne Parr will make the walk for the final time. With 148 combined fights in muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing and mixed martial arts under his belt, and 10 world titles in the trophy cabinet, “The Gunslinger” will square off against former four-time boxing world champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine in a bout that’s being billed as “World’s Collide.”
On Monday the promoters (DDP Sports) announced a new venue accommodating the event, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, South Bank.
JWP is always fit and importantly he is fight fit. Having done the hard work to get down to the weight for his recent kickboxing fight.
Even at his physical best he is tailor made for Mundine though. Just to rigid and bothered by a good jab. He was power was real back in the day though.
Choc’s punch resistance is gone but may improve slightly moving up in weight.
Parr just has to tap Mundine on the top of the head for a ko win… TBH I don;t know much (anything) about him other than he is a kick boxer so if he can tap Mundine’s head is anyone’s guess..
If Mundine does lose this I can see him touring the Northern Territory in one of those boxing tents inviting locals to try their luck against him for $20..
I don’t think he will ever retire..
