Muay Thai Versus Kung Fu Part 4: Kaoklai
Continuing the posts of the Kung Fu Versus Muay Thai Challenge held in December 2009 Kaoklai Kaennorsing would fight his Chinese opponent,Bien Mao Fu at 80kg.
A few months back a challenge was rendered allegedly from a team of Thailand’s Muay Thai camps to of all places the Shaolin Temple of Foshan, Guangdong province in China. Excerpts from the story quoted the five famous Thaiboxers as saying that they wanted to “wipe out the Shaolin Temple”. Instead however a team of Sanda fighters picked up the challenge and I offered my rant about it.
The rules of this bout and the entire event disallowed knee strikes to the head but allowed full Sanda rules.
Now you can see the fight between Kaoklai and Bien Mao Fu to see if the rules had anything at all to do with the fight’s outcome.
