Watch Junior Tafa’s KO at Eruption Muay Thai 20

With border restrictions in place, Glory fighter Junior Tafa has resorted to competing locally since covid reared its ugly head.

On Saturday night, on the Eruption Muay Thai 20 card in Brisbane’s south, Christian Balz stepped up to challenge Tafa but it wasn’t to be for Balz who was caught with a big short right, only 56-seconds into the contest.

The bout was contested under Full Thai Rules

Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son in Karate Kid back in 1987. By the time MMA arrived many years later, I was hooked. Coverage of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of riding in an F1 car or a Jet Fighter. Anyone have a spare one lying around?
