    Earlier this year, we reported on action star Jean-Claude Van Damme's rumored 2010 professional kickboxing fight. There's been no news on this fight for some time - until now.


    While Van Damme has not yet gone public regarding the fight, Thai media is reporting that JCVD attended a December 29 meeting in Thailand to determine details for the fight with Somluck Kamsing. With no media invited to the talks, and all information being reported strictly through Thai sources at the moment, some of this information is definitely subject to change, but it looks like the fight is indeed set for October 2010. This is pushed back from the original rumored March date to allow more time for promotion. The fight will take place in Las Vegas, and will be contested under slightly modified Muay Thai rules. Many of the details of this meeting dealt with broadcasting the fight, which has the potential to be a huge money-maker if promoted correctly.



    Perhaps of most interest, the two future opponents also posed for a picture together - the first public indication of the fight in any way from Van Damme's side.


    Well known internationally for his on screen role as a martial arts expert, Van Damme was a promising professional kickboxer in the late 1970's and early 80's, retiring in 1980 with a claimed record of 18-1. His opponent, Somluck Kamsing, is a Thai fighter who won the gold medal for boxing at the 1996 Summer Olympics.

    There are now three/four threads on this!

    And I don't think I've ever seen a Thai fighter cry on the ground

    Last weekend, Quebec Taekwondo federation organized a 3 days elite training for black belts. From Toronto, From Montreal.... 75 students.
    4 Masters. And one coach from Cote d'Ivoire Olympic.

    If Van Damme could have advices of a Taekwondo master, trust me guys,
    he would have a HUGE advantage against a muay thai fighter.
    If Kamsing use Taekwondo, JC need to know Taekwondo.
    And i'm thinking Claud Goetz doesn't know the 2009 Taekwondo evolution.

    They sure do look impressive and have great kicks.

    But in a MMA or K1 or other forms of Mix martial art fights, the rules are different, and I believe this is where Taekwondo lack's. I've seen many fights were Karate had an obvious advantage, first strong stance and punches are equal value in fighting as much as kick's. Therefore, since I did train in Tai boxing and Karate, these 2 are closer in fighting ability, and then the use of kick's alone.

    That is my opinion from observation and training. You can differ if you'd like to.

    I agree. So little from taekwondo would work for real against an opponent who know how to fight. And that is coming from someone who like the sport taekwondo and have practiced it for many years.
