This weekend’s fight pitting James Te Huna and Shogun Rua should be a burner of barns if you will, but it still makes me worried for Shogun. He has looked slow and beat up for a while now, and Te Huna is a monster of a man who will no doubt be brining his best against Shogun. There will be violence in Brisbane, this much we know.
And it will be a tough fight. Deep interview, Shogun. These Brazilians and their verbose nature…
“I expect a tough fight, he’s a good fighter that likes to stand and bang. It will be a great fight, for sure. He like to use his hands and I like to use my muay thai, so it will be cool.
“I don’t know if his style benefits me, but that’s a match-up that I like more (than wrestlers) because he goes there to fight.”
