Jack Osbourne Gets KO Win in First Bout By DANIEL LOVERING, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 59 minutes ago


Jack Osbourne, the chubby, bespectacled son for former shock-rocker Ozzy Osbourne, underwent almost four weeks of training and colonic irrigations before entering the ring against a veteran Thai kickboxer.

The result: a second round knockout win to the teenage television personality.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, respectively the muddled patriarch and prickly matriarch of the family whose life was documented in the hit reality show "The Osbournes," flew in to see Wednesday night's big bout, which was over in less than four minutes, a family associate said.

Jack, 19, who underwent drug rehabilitation in 2003, came to Thailand to learn the traditional sport called muaythai to help him get in shape for an upcoming rock climbing expedition in the U.S. said Ed Stobart, a Briton traveling with the young Osbourne.

"He has been training very hard for three and-a-half weeks," Stobart told The Associated Press in a telephone interview on Thursday. "His mum and dad flew in on what is essentially a private visit to see him and they're having a family day today."

Jack spent four days at the elite Fairtex Muaythai Fitness Camp near Bangkok, the Thai capital, before traveling to the popular tourist island of Pha-Ngan for "a complete physical detox, which was basically twice-daily massive colonic irrigations to kind of flush himself out of toxins," Stobart said.

Jack returned to the boxing camp for 10 more days of training before facing off against an experienced Thai boxer known only as "The Man."

With Ozzy and Sharon cheering him on, Jack knocked his opponent out eight seconds into the second round, said Philip Wong, Jack's trainer. Muaythai fights usually have five three-minute rounds.

"I was very impressed with his training," said Wong. "He behaved and he trained so hard for it ... he lost 20 pounds when he was with me."

But Jack, quoted by The Nation newspaper, said he needed to lose another 10 pounds to achieve his best fighting weight.

Jack took up muaythai after deciding to clean up his alcohol and drug habits and get healthy, an endeavor supported by his father, who also gave up drinking last year, the Nation reported.

"At first mum and dad were a little concerned," Jack was quoted as saying. "But once they came here and saw the training programs and saw for themselves that I was mentally and physically well prepared they were very cool about it all."

Jack said he enjoys sports that test his mind, body and spirit.

"I'd have to say that muaythai is something special. It's really demanding and it's becoming popular all around the world," he said.

Jack owes his fame to the MTV show "The Osbournes," which follows the lives of Ozzy, the former lead singer of legendary British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, and his wife, son and daughter. The show is in its final season

After 4 weeks training, he KO's a veteran fighter? Sounds suscpicious.

Has he had previous training?

I'm just glad he didn't try to take up singing.


**edit

they might have also paired him up with someone of similar fighting experience/training

Bang!

I think that Jack learned an extremely valuable lesson: You don't have to put in the requisite time and work to achieve honour and success because you're a rich semi-celebrity.

Kudos to "The Man," who is, no doubt, an unstoppable MT fighter who would never just lie down in the ring for a few bucks.

I think I'd have to see it to believe it. Unless of course, "the man" is a soup can... or as was stated before, on the payroll.

I must now travel to Thailand and claim my rightful world super deluxe championship belt, by beating a young celeb-via-nepotism into a bloody stupor.

Huz-ah!

I thought it was a better fight than the last thai video put up here.

Sorry Os! :)

Well, there were some hard hits there - it clearly wasn't a competitive fighter he fought, but he did deck the kid a couple times, and Osborne's lost some weight - I think if he keeps at it, he'll definately be taken more seriously in the record industry.

:: humbly bows and scrapes before pizdoff ::

That was a great thing to watch. It's so cute, they gave him a trophy!

Though I will be impressed if Osbourne sticks with it, seriously changes his life, and gets his ass in serious comeptition. I doubt it, but then his dad did bite the head off of a bird: anything is possible.

Good luck Jack, you'll need it.
