All luchadores fear the Bánh đa Libre of Thanh Hoa province as he is always armed with a bunch of slimy holothurian, which he will bludgeon you with relentlessly until your coach throws in the white towel.  Undefeated in 10 years, there are rumours that the Bánh đa Libre is in fact a Buddhist monk, who fights for money to feed malnourished kids in an orphanage, but it’s more likely he’s actually a local fisherman, who is fond of a tipple and likes to scrap with anyone who has the temerity to mock his peculiar ensemble.

Next week: The local luchador scene – Part two: Chain-smoking Vlad the Inhaler, a Russian oil-rigger from Vung Tau
