Pro Wrestling Matched Turned Real….Kimura vs Rikidozan

This was supposed to be seen as the duel of the century in Japan, with both wrestlers having backgrounds in martial arts, or fighting in some form. Kimura had a judo background, even inventing what we know today as the Kimura Lock. Rikidozan had a background in sumo wrestling. Their rivalry was to be booked as a series of matches, with the first scripted to end in a draw. After an errant kick to the groin, Rikidozan snapped. He unleashed a flurry of chops to Kimura’s neck and face. At one point, Kimura even turned to the referee, presumably to ask for some kind of help, only to be pummeled to the floor and kicked in the face while the ref just watched and nodded.

Somehow Kimura mustered up enough strength to stand up, bewildered by the turn of events. After the referee checked him for injuries, Rikidozan raced back in and chopped Kimura so hard in the neck that he knocked him out cold.

On December 8, 1963, while partying in a Tokyo nightclub, Rikidōzan was stabbed with a urine-soaked blade by a man named Katsuji Murata who belonged to the ninkyō dantai (Yakuza) Sumiyoshi-ikka. Reportedly, Rikidōzan threw Murata out of the club and continued to party, refusing to seek medical help. Another report states that Rikidōzan did indeed see his physician shortly after the incident, and was told the wound was not serious. He died a week later of peritonitis on December 15. It is rumored by Kimura that his murder was in retaliation for what transpired in the wrestling match.

Transgender fighter makes history against man in Muay Thai bout

On June 7th, 2017, Nong Rose Barnjaroensuk became the first transgender to compete in Thailand’s Rajadamnern Stadium, the country’s oldest Muay Thai stadium and the most prestigious one along the Lumpinee.

The road to the Rajadamnern has been tough for Nong Rose, tough. In fact, the transgender fighter, who identifies as a female, has struggled for years on her quest to fight in the stadium since it enforces strict dress code rules, notably forbidding sports bras. Long hair is not allowed either. Needless to say those rules severely limited Nong Rose’s chances to ever compete in the prestigious stadium.

It’s only after Nong Rose made waves in lesser known stadiums and after she collaborated with OneSongchai, Thailand’s most influential Muay Thai promoter, that the doors of the Rajadmnern opened for her.

Jimmy Smith The Worst Boxer Ever!


The moment a smart but worried father discovered his son’s opponent cheated by removing his padding & soaking his hand wraps in plaster of Paris. The opponent was later sentenced to 2.5 years in prison 

Undefeated Billy Collins Jr. (14-0, 11 KO) was a junior middleweight (154 lb.) prospect on his way up.

Luis Resto (20-8-2, 8 KO) was a light-punching journeyman.

Resto beat Collins’ eyes shut and his skin purple and blue. Collins suffered a torn iris and his vision was forever blurred. Collins could no longer fight.

Collins’ father and trainer Collins Sr. went up to shake Resto’s hand out of sportsmanship, only to be overcome with rage at how thin Resto’s glove was. He demanded the gloves be impounded.

Resto’s padding had been removed, and Resto himself admitted years later that his handwraps had been soaked in plaster of Paris, a substance that hardens into plaster casts.

Collins began drinking and became violent without boxing in his life.

He would later drive his car into a cement wall in 1984, ending his life at age 22.

Resto and his trainer, Panama Lewis, were banned for life from the sport.

Resto served 2 1/2 years in prison for assault, while boxing suffered a tragedy that shows just how dangerous cheating can be in this sport.
