It's fair to say that Chris John was never known for his wars. He was an excellent fighter though, barring one or two examples, he fought as a boxer as opposed to a brawler.
One of those exceptions was his fantastic bout with Japanese fighter Hiroyuki Enoki, a bout that deserved to be called a "war" with both men throwing serious leather at the other and both having the scars of war at the end of the bout. It truly was a great bout that combined plenty of skills, lots of action and real heart from both men.
If you've not seen this one before we really recommend you give it a watch it a watch, it may help change your view on Chris John who really could go to war when he needed to.
