Muay Thai vs. Kickboxing: The Fight That Changed History

Muay Thai vs Kickboxing the fight that changed history

Inspired by Muay Thai Pro’s excellent article – legendary fighters go to war in one of the first Muay Thai vs. Kickboxing bouts. This fight had a significant impact on North American Kickboxing and Muay Thai.

Duke Roufus was deeply influenced by this bout so we hope you enjoy. I realize that this may make some people question Duke Roufus — it shouldn’t! Carl Sagan said it much better than I can, and Duke is truly a scientist.

“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion” – Carl Sagan

This was one of the most pivotal fights in combat sports history. And is often cited by many fighters as the one fight which changed the way they approached their own journey in the world of combat sport. But more specifically kickboxing and Muay Thai!
