“Dirty South” Fright Promotion Pits A Round Mexican Against A Pro Powerlifter
One of the more bizarre fighting competitions out there is Rough ‘N’ Rowdy. The awesome southern-based competition pits a variety of different fighters against each other to compete for glory. Such fighters may include boxers, weightlifters, street thugs – anyone really. The fighters compete in one-minute rounds during which it’s basically an all-out attack, no defence type of arrangement!
One of the better matchups seen recently featured a buff-as-hell powerlifter who looks like he could bench press a truck, squaring off against a rotund Mexican dude who really looks like he needs to hit the gym. Pre-fight the commentators have all but written the Mexican off on account of his sloppy rig and somewhat dishevelled appearance in comparison to the pumped-up powerlifter.
But as the fight gets underway, it becomes clear that they should not have judged this book by its cover!
The Mexican dude can fight! He masterfully works the powerlifter around the ring with some pretty decent boxing technique. His confidence has the powerlifter on the back foot from the get-go. There is hardly any retaliation at all as the powerlifter covers up against a variety of strikes as the Mexican finds his reach very early.
After about 30 seconds he gets to work, unleashing a number of combinations that the powerlifter has absolutely no clue how to handle. An overhand right wobbles the powerlifter in the blue gloves and we see that his mouth is cut. Then with a left hook from hell followed by flurry, the powerlifter goes down!
During the break, as the crowd chugs beer, a commentator makes the observation that “his body makes no sense!”
When the action returns, the powerlifter is still heavily shaken from the first round. The referee intervenes a couple of times as he turns his back on the Mexican who has this one in the bag. Eventually, the referee calls it off.
