Jorge Kahwagi, a Mexican politician, celebrity and businessman, returned to this ring this past weekend in the Philippines at the ripe old age of 47-years-old.
Listed as a very questionable 11-0 with 11 KO’s, Kahwagi partakes in this ‘fight’ which one must seen in order to grasp it. It makes Mickey Rourke’s recent fight look like Lawler vs. MacDonald.
Wikipedia lists Kahwagi’s resumé as the following: Mexican senator, Big Brother contestant, and son of a famous politician.
TheBoxingTribune.com describes his boxing career as follows:
“From 2001 to 2005, Kahwagi won a series of questionable contests via dubious knockout, using his connections to gain spots on the televised undercards of well-known fighters such as Julio Cesar Chavez, Erik Morales, and Jorge Arce. In his third pro fight, he would “win” the Mexican cruiserweight title against the 0-4 Jose Lopez. The WBC and WBO, not to be outdone by greedy local commissions looking to cash in on Kahwagi’s name and cuddle up to his power, would both “somehow” find a way to sanction easy “Latino” and “International” title wins for the mega-wealthy daddy’s boy.”
Sounds like a fine fellow indeed, I would suggest reading the rest of that article to learn more about Jorge Kahwagi.
Props to Reddit MMA for the video.
