Views: 35640ADD COMMENT 9 years ago

aar03JNI Promotions, popular for presenting a martial art spectacular for fight fans, were struggling to maintain a full fight card for the “Armed and Ready” fight night held at Hurstville on Friday 17th July 2009. It seems that the swine flu was circulating through the gyms like a Shank’s Pony.
