Over 200 kilos will be in the cage when Emiliano Rivera is fighting Tim Hartmann next Friday on the Gold Coast.
Infamous ‘Noodles’, Emiliano Rivera is an american teen who laughed after UFC star Mark Hunt punched him in the stomach last month. Rivera is a nephew of John Wayne Parr from the side of his wife Angie. He is here in Australia for several months, training and fighting out of Boonchu gym on the Coast.
‘Noodles’ fought and faced a defeat from Tim Hartmann last Saturday in Brisbane. Three rounds of super-heavyweight muaythai action Parr described as “a very exciting 3 rounder”.
Indeed, and it is on again. Only two weeks after the final bell of their first encounter, Rivera and Hartmann will clash for the second time. They are fighting at the eighth edition of Caged Muay Thai.
The rules of the Art of Eight Limbs surely remain the same. Though the fighters will wear 4 oz MMA gloves, fighting in the octagon. This what CMT is about.
