PARR/WAKELING FIGHT FOR MUAYTHAI GLORY

9 Mar 2006


Australia's Muaythai superstar John Wayne Parr flew out to London on the weekend determined to bring home to his new Gold Coast gym the WBC MUAYTHAI green belt for the Middleweight Title.
"I've trained hard and my mind is focused. My preparation is as good as it can be�I'll be fighting my best and I intend to win," Parr said confidently from his Gold Coast home.
Parr has no doubts about the ability and determination of his younger opponent Englishman Steve Wakeling, who has returned to London after three months intense preparation training twice daily at the new Fairtex Sport Club and Muaythai training complex at the beach resort city of Pattaya.
The WBC MUAYTHAI Middleweight World Title is scheduled to be staged at the Wemberely Convention Centre on 12 March. Both Parr and Wakeling are former S1 tournament champions. Both are red hot for the championship showdown.
Parr had his reputation knocked down a peg when he lost to Thailand's Yodsaenklai Fairtex in the WBC Super Welterweight World Title contest that took place on Parr's Australian Gold Coast territory last December. But Parr considers that going up a weight division to fight Wakeling, the UK superstar, will make him stronger and harder to beat.
Wakeling training program has been supplemented by a nutrition power diet supervised by Bart van der Molen, Mr Universe 2004. "I feel strong and the fittest I've ever been in a build up to any fight. I am confident that I will win the title."
Parr (29) record is 78 fights for 57 wins and Wakeling (21) has fought 20 professional fights for only two loses. Wakeling will stand more than an inch taller than Wakeling.

Wakeling will be relying on his strong kicks and his elbows when Parr comes in hard with his hard hitting punches.
British promoter Nash Keshwala said that there had been very strong interest in the Parr/Wakeling showdown.
"It's the talk among the fight scene in London. It's a big fight and there's a lot of speculation as to who will be the winner. It's a sensational match-up and it will be a glorious night for winner."
The WBC sanctioned world title championship allows the use of punches, elbows and knee strikes as well as head and body kicks. The contest will be broadcast on Sky B Sky around Europe.
