Due to VISA issues Cosmo Alexandre can not enter Australia. He is now replaced by top New Zealander Brad Riddell who will fight Australian muaythai legend John Wayne Parr
"Ten weeks I have trained my ass off preparing for my fight Friday. Worked out I have ran close to 1000km focusing on defending my world title. Unfortunately, Cosmo didn't apply for his visa in time and was denied," said Parr.
"They have found me a replacement with Brad Riddell from New Zealand. Same Game plan, just new face." Training out of Auckland, New Zealand, the youngster has shown a lot of promise during his time fighting on the Kiwi circuit and is widely regarded as one of the country's top young fighters.
In perhaps his biggest achievement to date, Riddell won an 8-man tournament in late 2012 at the Oceania Super 8 event in Auckland.
The card also features WKN world title fights and Australian Title fights with Steven Baldacchino, Aaron Goodson, Simon Coutsouvelis and Tainui Crouch.
