WORLD BOXING COUNCIL MUAYTHAI WBC MUAYTHAI WORLD TITLES

22 Feb 2006


One of the most exciting match-ups in Muaythai history takes place in London on 12 March when the super talented Englishman Steve Wakeling takes on the Australian legend fighter John Wayne Parr for the WBC Middleweight World Title.
The credentials of both contenders are impressive. Both are S1 tournament champions and both have fought internationally - also in Thailand.
This winner takes all glory championship event will be the most important contest in Wayne Parr's 10-year fighting career. The Aussie superstar suffered a shock loss to Thailand's Yodsaengklai Fairtex in the WBC Super Welterweight World Title contest staged on the Australian Gold Coast last December. And this could be his last shot at a WBC world title.
"I want to bring home to Australia the WBC green belt," asserted a fiery Parr who's assured his many fans that he's "desperate for victory".
Parr (29) fight record is 78 fights for 57 wins. Wakeling (21), nine years younger, has lost only two of 20 professional fights.

Wakeling's father and manager Mark learned to fight Muaythai in Thailand in the 80's. The British Muay Thai title holder is currently in Thailand training at the new Fairtex Sport Club in Pattaya where he's having daily sparing sessions with Muaythai professional trainers and is on a nutrition diet supervised by Bart Van der Mollen, Mr Universe 2004.
Parr is training in his new gym on the Queensland Gold Coast.
After the London contest the WBC MUAYTHAI championship action again hots up on 6 May when Germany's outstanding fighter Mark Vogel fights Darius Skliaudis of Lithuania for the vacant Super Middleweight World Title. Vogel will be out to extend his long winning streak.
The championship focus then returns to Australia's Gold Coast in June when "Carnage" Corbett defends his World Cruiserweight title against one of the top European contenders.
More WBC world titles events have been scheduled for 16 July in London and the World Super Middleweight Title defense takes place in Magdeburg, Germany on 7 October.
