Fevola and his Fox FM breakfast co-hosts Fifi Box and Byron Cooke have spent the week broadcasting from Tokyo with a bunch of their listeners from Melbourne.
The show arranged for former AFL player Fevola to take on a professional sumo wrestler named Jumbo for what was supposed to be two fun matches.
After letting Fevola win the first match comfortably, Jumbo (who weighed approximately 170kg) stepped up his game for the second match.
After a back-and-forth tussle with the radio host, Jumbo spun Fevola out of the arena and sent him crashing into a wall.
“I didn’t think the Jumbo thought it was going to be serious, just a bit of fun until I put the sumo loincloth on and actually gave it my all,” Fevola told news.com.au.
“I think Jumbo was shocked that I was giving it a proper crack so it got quite heated and there was blood and someone ended up in a wall.”
Discussing the incident on air this morning, Box said to her co-host: “He (Jumbo) realised you were full on in that second round. He went hard!”
Fevola said the wrestling match was good fun and joked, “I felt like I was in Rush Hour!”
