Re: This is the guy pacman is fighting in kickboxing
Buakaw is an all time great in kickboxing, probably better at that than Manny is at boxing. I wouldn't think that was a good match up for Manny's first pro kickboxing fight. Even with Manny's superior boxing he's going to get his legs kicked to death and kneed to hamburger in the clinch. Buakaw has 205 victories. Manny has 0. They are the same size and it would be a cool exhibition, but it might interfere with Manny's fight with Marquez just three weeks later. This most likely will not happen. However, Manny clearly wins in a pure boxing match where kicks are disallowed.
It's not entirely out of the realm of possibility considering Floyd fought in WWE and Muhammad Ali had that wrestling bout with Inoki.
