Yesterday, Kickboxer participated in the IFS Cup: Muay Thai 8-man Elimination Tournament in Pico Rivera.
Twelve seconds into the first round (picture above), Kickboxer landed a clean high left kick to his opponent’s head, sending him down to the canvas for the count. After almost 10 seconds, the bearded guy foolishly got up to continue the match.
Kickboxer continued to smack this guy around with a combination of jabs and kicks, and when tangled in the ropes, high knees. The fight went for 3 rounds. Though it got close, there was no TKO. My friend still won by unanimous decision, 30-27, 30-27, 29-27. It was a great match.
Entering the ring ….
Performing Wai Khru Ram Muay, pre-fight dance to pay respect to Thai culture.
Lethal high kicks proved to be indispensable in this match up.
Looks ruthless, but eriously, one of the nicest guys I know.
Afterwards, celebrated in Thai town.
