Last year, Australia's Muay Thai legend John Wayne Parr retired after fighting on his own first Caged Muay Thai event, knocking out Jordan Tai in the fourth round. It wasn't the first time that Parr had retired so naturally we wondered if he would come back again, and that's exactly what is happening.
Today it was announced by Joe Nader, promoter of Powerplay Promotions that John Wayne Parr is coming out of retirement this year, starting with a fight on April 19 for Powerplay Promotions in Australia. Parr signed a three fight deal with Powerplay Promotions, where he fought trilogy matches with Yodsanklai Fairtex and Mike Zambidis.
After that fight in April, Parr might possibly fight on another one of his successful Caged Muay Thai shows. Either way, it's great to have him back.
