“This fight [against Mundine] I am pushing through, as it’s such a massive opportunity and a chance to introduce myself to Australia. If I get the win my final fight record record in Muay Thai, Kickboxing and boxing will be 110 wins. Hopefully with 57 knockouts out of 148 fights.”

Over the course of his career John Wayne Parr, 43, earned 10 world titles in kickboxing and Muay Thai, winning prestigious Kings Cup and S-1 tournaments in 2001 and 2004 respectively, as well as WKN Super Welterweight championship, WMC and ISKA Middleweight titles, among everything. His professional boxing record is 10-3, 10 KO.
