The Challenger: ‘Battleground’ has finished filming and is likely to be broadcast soon. The reality television show is the natural successor to The Contender Asia and the similarities don’t end there.

John Wayne Parr appeared on the original Contender Asia series, which was filmed in Singapore. His daughter, Jazzy Parr, was in The Challenger: ‘Battleground’ which was filmed in Langkawi last year.

While the official footage has yet to be released she shared some exclusive behind the scenes photos on Instagram:

Youngest member

Langkawi is renowned for its waterfalls and Jazzy appears to have visited one of them along with the rest of the cast. There were six female fighters and six male fighters on the show.

During filming fights took place at the Langkawi Sports Complex but the results are shrouded in secrecy. Jazzy’s rivals were Amy Duke, Tierra Brandt, Laura Burgos and Natalia Morgan.

At 19 Jazzy was the youngest of the cast members. But she wouldn’t have had to look too far for advice with her dad having reached the final of The Contender Asia back in 2007.

Training in Thailand

Jazzy is currently training in Thailand although it isn’t clear when she is going to compete next. The grand finals of The Challenger: ‘Battleground’ don’t appear to have taken place yet and might be scheduled for after the official broadcast begins.

Her dad is busy right now because he has accompanied Reece McLaren to the US. The Australian is set to face Kairat Akhmetov at ONE Fight Night 10 in Broomfield on Saturday.

Jazzy hasn’t fought in public since December. She beat Nicila Costello to win the WIBA flyweight title and extend her perfect professional record in boxing.

She appears to be more focused on boxing than Muay Thai and was scheduled to compete in February. But she was forced to pull out from that fight after suffering an undisclosed injury.

The sight of Jazzy training in Thailand again will have fans speculating that she might be ready to return to Muay Thai. We have seen the behind the scenes photos from The Contender: ‘Battleground’ now we want to see the actual episodes!
