The Evolution Of Sivi Afi

From low-carder to jobber to "High Chief"... (at least for one match)

Sivi Afi AKA Siva Afi started out as a successful main-eventer/mid-carder in the independent circuit. In Honolulu, Hawaii, 1985, he wrestled Ric Flair to a one hour time limit draw for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in front of 20,000 people...  A year later, in the WWF, he was squashed by Randy "Macho Man" Savage under 2 minutes on national TV. 

Thanks to his national TV exposure as a pure jobber in the WWF, he ended up a jobber in other local wrestling promotions.

World Wrestling Federation (1986-1989/90)

Sivi Afi makes his WWF debut on January 28, 1986 at Championship Wrestling.  Billed as "Superfly" Afi, the cousin of Jimmy Snuka, Sivi Afi defeated the Gladiator (winless jobber Rick Hunter) in a very boring match.

With the departure of the ultra-popular Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka.  The WWF was searching for somebody to fill the void.  So with his ressemblance to the original one, Sivi Afi was supposed to be the "new" Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka.  In order to fit the billing, the future Third Islander, High Chief Afi got an ultra-mega-fucking-painful and not too discreet traditional Samoa knees up-to-waist tattoo. But it was all for nothing, since his adventure as the High Chief Afi lasted nothing more than a 3-man tag team match. So he gets this fuckin' tattoo for nothing

Steve Lombardi incredible, horrible, atrocious WWF/WWE win-loss record: 12-242-0 with an almost perfect losing percentage of 95.28%.  On his rare wins, a few weren't even "real" win like his count out win versus Big Bully Busick.

Boxing often describe their tomato cans as .500 fighters. So we can say that Lombardi is a .047 fighter. Impressive!

Here is what he does best... losing.


From Steve Lombardi to Brooklyn Brawler...  A jobber is always a jobber.

Peter Hiesinger

Peter Hiesinger
The New King of Synthol
World Record 31.5" Biceps (80 cm)
Apparently mister Hiesinger unsurprisingly got some serious health issues due to his extreme synthol and roids abuse.  He had a heart attack, has severe lung problems, and they can't surgically fix his arms because they are so messed up inside he would likely bleed to death.  He's now at home, unemployed and probably permanently disabled due to his oil injections.  Sad but true...

Free traduction from a German article published in June 29, 2006.
Today the pleasant young man with the good-natured smile sees much differently. Peter Hiesinger (26) could not begin again from the front, he disinfected oil more in its muscles would squirt, in order to get still more impressing upper arms.

"But I was young and too little self value feeling from at home had received. Thus I constructed muscles, Anabolika took and with the muscle oil angefangen." The fact that was lethal is today clear him. A late insight - Hiesinger became with difficulty lung ill by the poisonous oil, can hardly one hundred meters far go and had an easy impact accumulation. Chance for healing it does not have.

Hiesingers upper arm, that measures 80 cm extent is world record. " The muscle is completely vernarbt and encased of the injections. Not even an operational reduction is possible, I could verbluten" , the Salzburger says.

The consequences for it are fatal: It had to give its occupation up and finds now no more work. Unstable health and appearance deter many employers. Its craze after Anabolika devours large sums.

MMA Freak Show

In my view, Japan MMA freak shows and freak fighters are the best and most entertaining.  I like to see fighters of all sizes and backgrounds going against each other.  Is this what martial arts is all about?!  Or at least, it's suppose to be.

Brad Pitt in Fight Club

Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden in Fight Club

Probably the ideal man physique to make all the chicks wet.  Everybody talk about how Brad Pitt was lean and muscular in Fight Club (1999).  But actually, Brad Pitt was at one of his lightest weight ever in his adult life.  Brad Pitt weighed around 153-160 lbs at 6' with 5-8% body fat, sporting around 14 inch arms at 35 years old.  Pretty skinny sort of speak! 

Brad Pitt's body in Fight Club was voted the most sought after body by men in Mens Health Magazine

Tyler Durden

Brad Pitt's body as Tyler Durden in Fight Club is often seen as the ultimate ideal man physique.

6 ft. tall, 155 lbs, 8% body fat, 14 inch arms

His stats are not that impressives.  Any skinny ectomorph can have the same without ever stepping a foot in the gym.
But when your name is Brad Pitt, you're an aesthetic god and you makes all the women wet.

But as Brad Pitt's Fight Club's physique can attest.  Being lean and cut can make you look bigger than you actually are.

"Brad Pitt in Fight Club is the reference for 300," says Mark Twight, who trained the cast for 300. "Everyone thought he was huge, but he was, like, 155 pounds. If you strip away fat and get guys to 3, 4 percent body fat, they look huge without necessarily being huge." source

Brad Pitt in Snatch (2000)
In Snatch (2000), his body fat was up to approximately 8%.

Brad Pitt in Troy at 40 years old

At 40, Brad Pitt was a solid 185 lbs with around 12% body fat in Troy (2004).  His usual bodyweight being 170 lbs.

Brad Pitt was 153 lbs in Fight Club to 185 lbs in Troy. 
While he was untrained and just plain skinny in his first breakthrough role in Thelma & Louise (1991)

In his first breakthrought film Thelma & Louise in 1991, Brad Pitt was just plain skinny and lean.  Brad Pitt is a natural ectomorph and hardgainer, in other words he have a small-bones constitution and got an hard time gaining muscle as well as fat. 

In real-life, Brad Pitt is far from being a gym enthusiast.  He doesn't like to train and got several unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking beer, and eating chips and junkfood.  He workouts and diets just when needed for a movie role. 

The only focus here is to lose fat and get super lean.
Just as Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "Great abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym."

Earnie Shavers Knockouts

"The Black Destroyer" Earnie Shavers is considered by many to be the hardest puncher of all time.  Muhammad Ali, Joe Bugner, Larry Holmes, Randall "Tex" Cobb, Ron Lyle and Ken Norton all credited Shavers as being the hardest puncher they had ever faced in the ring (surprisingly, none of them were KO'd by Shavers). 

His right uppercut and cross were his greatest assets.  "The Black Destroyer" compiled an impressive record, winning 44 of his first 47 fights by knockout; mostly against sub-215-pound bums. His KO streak included 28 consecutive knockouts. 20 victories were in the first round. Compiling a career record of 74-13-1 (68 KO) Boxrec His downfalls were his poor chin and his lack of stamina.

Some people believe that the 6', 208-pound Earnie Shavers would squash today's heavyweight boxing division. But some people thinks otherwise. 

Read this: and you might think otherwise too.  Maybe Shavers is just grossly overrated? 

The above link offers you a detailed and objective case study of Earnie Shavers record, career, and accomplishments.

 The Match Build-Up

Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! (June 1987)
 In 1989, Tyson's people saw the huge and shirtless Tony Mandarich on the cover of Sports Illustrated and offered him $5 million to fight thenundisputed and undefeated Heavyweight Boxing Champion Mike Tyson.  But Tony Mandarich wanted $10 million to fight Mike Tyson.  A really good deal for a fight, since Mandarich would have to play football for six, seven years to earn that kind of money.  But in my view, as explaned below by Mandarich himself, it was just a brilliant publicity stunt to effectively get more money out of his NFL contract.

But several people just like myself would have loved to see Tyson vs. Mandarich.  I love freak shows!

Here is his explanations about the Tyson fight:
"Well, Lou Duva [Tyson's trainer] and Shelly Finkel [Tyson's manager] came to me right after the SI cover. They said, "Would you be interested in fighting Mike Tyson?" And I said, "Of course I'd consider any offer." Lou Duva worked with me in the ring, and he said, "We need about nine months of training, and you'll be ready to do it. The fight won't last three rounds, and only one of two things will happen: You will kill him, or he will kill you." So they went back to N.Y. in late August and made an offer of $5 million. Then, I was thinking, "I'm going into the ring with a killer at the top of his game. He's probably going to destroy me. So I better get paid for it." I asked for more money, which helped put pressure on the Packers to get my contract done, and that's what happened. And we never talked about it again". (source 1)
