    Last time I watched one of these things got crazy. The American boxer had an assistant who also knew how to fight, they actually fought each other outside the ring and the assistant won because he was a kick boxer so he used his legs and won.
    The famous boxer told his assistant since he won he would be the one to represent the USA in the tournament.

    then the guy went on to fight and beat everyone, china, Japan, Spain (Spanish guy actually fought like a bullfighter) and Africa. That’s right, Africa, not an actual country but the whole continent of Africa was represented by one black guy in tribesman garments.

    Anyway, the main guy was from Mongolia and he was a monster but the American guy (who had a French accent for some reason) went on to knock him out with a spinning jump helicopter kick.
