“Big Mouths, Small Hearts”

East vs. South, Bagattin responds

11 April 2013

Johannesburg (South Africa) - On Tuesday Tyron ‘The Rush’ Rightford ignited the east vs. south debate with his video calling out Dino ‘The Lion’ Bagattin. The two will meet at EFC AFRICA 19, on April 19. Today Bagattin has responded with a video of his own.

“They like to think they hard,” says Bagattin of the men from the south, “they act hard, talk hard. That says it all. Big mouths … small hearts.” “It means a lot to me,” he says of his support from the east of Johannesburg, “they behind me 100%. I’m their boy.”

Both fighters have fearsome striking reputations. Bagattin is a Thai Boxing world champ while Rightford has earned the same honours in Kyukoshun Karate. On April 19, their fists will meet in the cage.

“Tyron, I’m coming for you,” says Bagattin. Get your tickets now.
