JCVD fight

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.

I have been waiting and waiting for this! Hopefully this happens and JCVD looks at least close to how good he was when he fought in the Kumite... Hopefully nobody throws blinding powder at him, because his master that taught him to fight blind died.... he wouldnt be prepared...

Everyone knows how this will end, Kamsing will beat the living crap out of him, but JCVD will come back and he will win with a spin kick in the dying seconds.

JCVD recently had a heart attack. Im not a medical professional, but im willing to bet that puts any kind of fight out of the question.

What's dumb about it?

Yeah, it maybe a stupid fight but it could defiantely be entertaining. The fact is JCVD should've done this earlier when his onscreen roles were diminishing. He could've been pretty good in early K-1!:thumbsup:
