Bruce Lee’s 70th Birthday Kung Fu Versus Muay Thai Results
By Mike LNg
The Bruce Lee 70th Birthday Celebration fights have ended and the results are in. The Muay Thai team dropped two of their opponents who in my opinion got unusually long and questionable counts particularly against Siam No.1 of Toronto’s Simon Marcus. Also some of the efforts of the Chinese team to escape being taken down were at times questionable. In typical format of the sanda versus Muay Thai matches of the past, the rules were structured as follows:
Men: 5 Rounds* 3 minutes 90 seconds of rest Between rounds.
Women: 3 Rounds * 3 minutes 90 seconds of rest Between rounds.
The allowed techniques for the fights : punching, elbows strikes (with pads), knees, kicks, and throws.
Zhang Kai Yin wins against John Wayne Parr via unanimous decision.
Marcus Simon wins against Guo Hanghang by KO from a knee strike to the ribs.
Jomthong Chuwattana wins against Ji Haitong by TKO stoppage due to knee strikes.
Miao Yujie wins against Parinya Charoenphol (Nong Toom) by points.
Ji Haithong wins over Big Ben by points.
In the coming days I will post the footage so that you can decide for yourself who deserved to win.
