    Apparently Many Reyes Jr. won the "Super Middleweight Championship of the World" last night... at his dad's own tournament in Miami.

    I don't know if this should be in MABS or belongs in YMAS, it's pretty definitive that the guy is a fraud.

    Anyway, just for fun: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6i...reyes-jr_sport

    I have no idea. You can watch the video of it on his FB page in that link above. In all honesty; it looks like some drunk dude from the audience that they gave 20 bucks to get in the ring. He's wearing a t-shirt and what looks like cargo shorts! lol

    To elaborate, you can make pretty much any athlete look bad. The agony of defeat, as it were. It doesn't mean that said athlete is a fraud or sucks or anything. Imanari is 10th Dan of Leg Locks. But how'd he look against Tonon? I guess Imanari's a fraud. But how'd Tonon look against Rustem? Whoa, another fraud. I guess it's rampant. So taking an L, even badly, doesn't necessarily indicate fraud.

    I'd agree with your assessment, except that I'm referencing another post on this forum: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=95216
    I went an had a look at his mma record, there's several people that he has wins over (Randy Calcine, Carlos Puentes, Joe Moretti, Robert Collazo) who, with reference to the article, I'd want to assess if they were real. There were no referees listed in any of these events (at least on Sherdog), and in the case of Randy Calcine, he's two fights ever have both been losses to Manny Jnr.

    So yeah, he might be a legit martial artist, but his record is patchy and claiming to be a world champ from a promotion nobody has ever heard of works against his validity in my books

    Manny was a legit, very good tournament fighter back in the 80s-90s. He was the first and I believe still the only person to win the NBL, NASKA, and USKA world titles in the same division in the same competition year, which was a big deal back then. However, as time has progressed, Manny seems to have become the Al Bundy of sport martial arts, still living on his "four touchdowns in a single game" fame from 25yrs ago. lol
