Something tells us you want to see this kickboxer get KOd and do a backwards somersault out of the ring

Something tells us you want to see this kickboxer get KOd and do a backwards somersault out of the ring

Why is kickboxing called kickboxing, but boxing isn't called 'punchboxing?' Why is it called boxing at all? For you Europeans out there, the day after Christmas is called Boxing Day, but it's just another day for all of you guys to get sloshed in the name of a holiday. I'm sure there's an explanation for all of this. If I were a boxing expert then I could quote some ancient trainer that invented the sport, probably out of respect for enclosed geometrical containers.

We're typeboxers over here at MiddleEasy. Every day we get a hefty amount of training done in the name of perfecting the sport. However in all the years MiddleEasy has been in existence, we've never pulled an accidental back somersault like this kickboxer in this video.

Zeus @MiddleEasy

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

I guess that's gonna happen when the only people in the area to rush to your rescue are a pasty-white old man in a suit AND a lady in a sleeveless shirt(which btw matched the guy to her right[how fucking gay is that?])

The referee should have his licence taken away. Fight was over 3-4 shoots before they guy fell out of a ring.

Sometimes these things happen in... kickboxing.

That was a Muay Thai match. Listen to the "whales raping each other" music in the background, also you can't clinch and knee that many times in a kickboxing match because the ref would break up the clinch.

Thanks, Dude, for clearing that up.

A lot of people don't understand the difference. Muay Thai allows for many things that are illegal in kickboxing. Elbows, clinch fighting, dumping your opponent to the floor via a sweep or throw, the Wai Kru Ram Muay (the dance you see at the beginning of matches) is required to be performed by the fighter before a match. It's like a religion.
