Biography & career

Early life

Wayne Parr began training in Taekwondo at the age of 11. As Parr was growing up, his family moved a lot and his mother helped him find a new gym each time they settled in a new place, in order to keep her son in training. At the age of sixteen, his family moved back to Queensland, and Parr began training with Blair Moore. Moore trained Parr for 13 fights, with Parr winning an Australian title (63 kg) at the age of 17. A South Pacific title by 5th round knock out over Scott Lovelock was also won when Parr was 19.[1]

In 1995 Parr moved to Thailand and lived in a Muay Thai camp for four years, training in Pattaya and Bangkok, competing in 30 fights and winning two world titles. He was voted the Best Farang Fighter of the year in 1997, fought at Lumpinee Stadium three times, and at his first Thai King’s birthday. In 1999 Parr moved back to Australia to open his own gym.[2]

The Contender Asia Finals

On 12 April 2008 Parr fought Yodsaenklai in Singapore for The Contender Asia title and USD $150,000. The fight was an emotional battle for Parr; just weeks before the contest, his father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.[citation needed] His wife was also pregnant. Parr recovered from two knockdowns during the fight, but lost by unanimous decision.
