Profile: Jan Nortje

Posted by Africa Wrestling On June - 21 - 2010

Meet Johannes. His friends, if he has any, call him Jan. As a professional South African K-1 Kickboxer, you’ll know him as Jan Nortje where with a mix of martial arts and pro boxing he, as a 2 metre tall behemoth has been a devastating force under the banners of Strikeforce, DREAM, PRIDE Fighting and New Japan Pro Wrestling. At 160kg it’s no wonder his also known as The Giant. As a devoted AWA follower you might be asking yourself – why should I care? This is why.

Mr Nortje recently found himself (as fully paid up spectators of his ilk usually do) at our recent House of Pain Title Championship bout where he felt the urge to challenge our current heavyweight champion, Shaun Koen to a one fall match. Predictably, Shaun accepted – and the two will now be facing each other in the squared circle at the next House of Pain. And THAT’S something you will NOT want to miss. Watch this space!
