Here is the articles. It was not an act of 'bullying'.

They blamed the influence on the movie "Fight Club" hahaha what a joke. They also had a disclaimer that the image had nothing to do with the boy's death but they used that to misled readers to think the kid that died was in the video.

A TEENAGE boy died after he was punched in the head during a voluntary "fight club" organised by students in a local park after school.

Year 9 student Stephen Luu died in Liverpool Hospital three days after he was punched by a Year 7 boy whom police said was aged 12 or 13.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal that the boys involved in the fight club made a pact to conceal what really happened, claiming the dead student had been hit on the head by a soccer ball.

School serious incident reports obtained by The Daily Telegraph under Freedom of Information reveal the fight club was run by high school students in south-western Sydney.

One fight, filmed on a student's mobile phone on September 25 last year, shows students removing their shirts before wrapping them around their fists and boxing.

The main picture here is not of the brawl in which Stephen was killed.

Fight Club: The movie that inspired the fights

Footage seized by police shows the Year 7 student punching Luu to the ground.

Luu complained of dizziness and was helped home by his younger brother and the Year 7 boy.

But his condition worsened and about 5pm an ambulance was called and he was taken to hospital.

The Vietnamese Australian, from Heckenberg, suffered from the congenital blood disorder Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia, in which the blood does not clot properly.

He was operated on for a bleed to the brain but did not regain consciousness and died at 1pm on September 28.

Sgt David Hatchwell of Green Valley police said investigations into the incident were still being made but no charges had been laid.

"We are waiting to receive a report from a neuro-forensic pathologist and a pathologist's report," Sgt Hatchwell said.

Police have needed an interpreter to interview the dead boy's parents, Chuc and Thuy Luu, because they do not speak English.

Former Liberal candidate for Cabramatta Dai Le, who has visited the family, said yesterday the Luus were "devastated" by their loss.

Department of Education and Training documents refer to the "death of student following fight".

The fight - on the last school day before term holidays - was recorded on a mobile phone by Luu's brother. The Year 7 boy was "extremely distraught" and was undergoing counselling.

Sgt Hatchwell said a date had not yet been set for a coroner's hearing.

i guess thats why you are year 7 kids. think you have something to prove. go punch eachother in a gym or a controlled environment.

how do you think that childrens parents are feeling now because a bunch of thugs thought it would make them more of a man to belt the **** out of someone.

Pete Hickmott said it best over at infiniteMMA.com:



I believe we, the MMA community, must reject this sort of behaviour. This is not a representation of the sport in any way whatsoever. If people, junior or senior, wish to partake in this sort of competition they should seek a professional gym and learn MMA correctly.

Oh ****, that's nothing, we hadn't held our fight club in like a year, and BAM! We're on the news. Turns out some gary coleman lookin' high school **** that used to show up at our club to watch started it back up on his own after hours with other teens. The local hacks blamed it on Never Back Down, and then interviewed the two prettiest, most popular kids at that school who said they had "heard" of it. Oh well, at least dumbasse's fighters followed the first rule.

WTF. They didn't even stop to consider it might have been a kangaroo attack, sometime after he left the fight club?

This is the same australia, right?

Yeah it is he was about 12 or 13. Its a real shame this had to happen but if he knew his blood would not clot why fight? And why start a "fight club" in the first place? Fighting hurts people thats why it was specalized for war and defense. If you dont want to get hurt dont fight. Damn I guess Darwin was right.
