Hundreds of Men Named Josh Gather in Park to Fight for the Right to Use the Name
The event, which was held in Air Park in Lincoln, Nebraska attracted people from across the United States, with some driving hours to participate in the fight. Contestants also used the event to support local charitable organisations.
All known battles pale and tremble in fear before the carnage that occurred in Nebraska on Saturday during the so-called Josh Fight. Hundreds of people named Josh gathered in a park to find out who deserves to use this name. Don’t worry no Josh was harmed during the fight as participants used pool noodles against each other.
oshes from all walks of life and even Joshes with super powers like Spider-Josh or Josh Skywalker attended the battle.
It all started as a joke. Last year, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Josh Swain sent a message on Facebook to his namesakes, inviting them to a battle. His message instantly became a popular internet meme.
“We fight, whoever wins gets to keep the name, everyone else has to change their name, you have a year to prepare, good luck”, read the message.

A year passed and Swain’s friends reminded him about the message he sent and encouraged him to organise the event. In an interview with local media, Swain confessed that he wasn’t sure that anyone would attend the Josh Fight when he posted details about it on social media. However, hundreds of people turned up for the battle.

Josh Swain, the organiser of the event, said he is still in disbelief that so many people attended the fight and thanked all the participants for donating to charities.
