Andre ‘The Mad Man’ Meunier: appropriately labelled and packaged for Japanese fans.

Andre Meunier, Victoria’s number-one heavyweight kickboxer, is hitting his straps. He’s just come back from a win in Japan where he was the intro for the two most significant heavyweights in the history of the sport, might do a it of boxing, enjoys a spot of MMA in his time off, has opened a tattoo parlour in Windsor and likes a bit of speedway racing when the opportunity presents itself. He tells Theme Park at its Darkest all about it.

Blitz Magazine, December 2014

For Gary Palmer, martial arts have been part of his life for as long as he can remember.

“I started with boxing,” says Gary, “I grew up with it. I come from a boxing family. My grandfather was Dave Palmer, who was both heavy and light-heavyweight champion of Australia.

He tells JARROD BOYLE about his recent WMC State Title win and the possibilities it has opened up for him, including a spot on JWP’s Caged Muay Thai, a promotion as Queensland-crazy as anyone could hope to get.
