Watch this vid of my Kru Mehdi Pouroskoui fight his 1st bare knuckle Muay Thai match, known to some as Muay Boran. Now there is a story to this: Mehdi is going to Thailand to fight for a champion belt (1 of many by the way) flies for a whole day and lands jet lagged in Thailand where he is greated by his coach Pak. I don’t know if you’ve flown for a whole day, but it’s crazy jet lag. Pak is distressed because one of his athletes dropped out of match, but lo and behold Mehdi is the same size. Will Mehdi take the fight? “Sure” Mehdi says with a weak dehydrated grin, “when is it” Pak cackles, “today”. Mehdi’s shoulders slump but he is dedicated to his coach and will help. So they get on a train and travel for 7 hours in extreme heat to get there and now you can see that fight from the comfort of your home.
My Kru Mehdi will be here on July 12 and 13 to hold a Muay Thai camp. Interested in learning from a 3 time world champion, ranked in boxing and a bare knucklefighter. Register now at the Kombat front desk-Jd
