First off that is not kickboxing as most poeple know it now, that is light semi contact Karate, which was very often labled as kickboxing back then in the hangover days after the movie Kickboxer. Kickboxing became a buzz marketing word being used by just about any organisation that could get away with using it to gain more students or spectators and to look a bit fresh, exotic and like thay had something different to teach.

At that time you had more governing bodies offering kickboxing world titles than you did fighters fighting for them, so to all those boxing fans unfamiliar with the Kickboxing world Vitali's world title means absolutly nothing! In the west this was before the Muay Thai explosion that has since come to dominate all forms of FC stand up fighting and hence in most organisations low kicks were not allowed and more often than not you had a mimimum kick rule of 7 per round. No wonder FC karate died a pitiful death once MT exploded into K1. K-1 was just getting started and niether Pele or Vitali would have survived more than round and a half with a Hoost, Aerts or Hug of the era. The MT world was and always will be all about the Thai scene as back in the 90s the Kickboxing scene was all about Japan not the west.

And unlike boxing where the HWs have always been give such promimence and respect the HW Kickboxing or MT scenes are always the weakest in talent, quality and spectator excitement more often than not being horrible and ugly mismatches, the last division you look to for anything good. MT & KB are sports for little guys 72 kg and under, the big boyz aren't built for it very few have the natural atheltisism to even perform the most basic techniques fluidly.

And as for the above KO, well in MT & KB there isn no shame in getting KTFO from a kick. All that granite chin stuff goes out the window when Knees, Kicks and more importanly Elbows are involved. It's all about granite legs in the MT & KB world.

Glass legs do exsist!!!

Hard to believe anything you or the Klitschko's say as you all lie so much. Remember Vitali trying to deny being knocked out from a kick to the jaw and this video proves that he is a liar.

Haye will do exactly the same except it will be a punch to the jaw and Vitali will be knocked unconscious and into retirement.

Will Haye be the 3rd Brit to stop Vitali?


It will be an incredible book end to his illustrious career.

This was in 2005, when Vitali prepared for the fight against Rahman. Rumors where going Vitali was knocked down in sparring against Butler and Walker.

I remember a thread about this ages ago. A few people (me included) said we had seen the video. Most did not believe it happened.

If he did deny it, I dont understand why.

A knockout that happened in a different sport 21 years ago. Has no bearing on his boxing career. Why deny it? Weird.

Default Re: pele reid ko vitali

WBC Heavyweight Champion Klitschko allegedly asked, “Who’s Pele Reid?”, and when he was reminded that Pele was supposed to have KO’d him in a kickboxing match, Klitschko answered, “It was so long ago that I forgot all about him. I lost that fight because of a kick to the thigh, not because of any punch. Lennox is the biggest puncher in the world and he couldn’t knock me out.”

This video is telling.

If you knock a 6'7 guy on his back, he wont have the leverage to pick himself up. Now we know why Vitali was holding for dear life in round 6, his body cant recover from that position.
