It's official! Jean-Claude Van Damme fighting in 2010

Quote:
For the past few months we've been discussing the rumored 2010 kickboxing fight between Jean-Claude Van Damme and Thai Olympic boxer Somluck Kamsing, but have not heard anything official from Van Damme's side. Now, for the first time, Van Damme himself has spoken publicly and confirmed it - Jean-Claude Van Damme will face Somluck Kamsing in a legitimate kickboxing fight in 2010!

Van Damme spoke to the press about his plans for the year, indicating that he will have three reality shows this year - one related to casting, one behind the scenes on a Van Damme film project called The Tower, and one that follows Van Damme as he trains for his fight with Somluck.

The third show will follow both Van Damme in his training and Somluck as he trains in Thailand, culminating in the actual fight between the two men, to take place in either September or October in Macau, China (a change from the original plan to hold the fight in Las Vegas). Ever the self-promoter, Van Damme's The Tower will also be released at that time, so that in a one month span, Van Damme's different shows will wrap up, his new film will be released, and the Somluck fight will air.

Van Damme's comments on the fight:

[Fighting Kamsing] is kind of dangerous, but life is short and I want to do this fight... to prove to young people, and even to mature people, that a man can go into some very strong physical effort, training, and everything and also be a movie star.

It's always fun to see movie stars try their luck in sports. This fight will be fun to watch and I'm excited to see what Van Damme can do in a ring. Van Damme is 50.

Perhaps Stallone will try too and they could fight together. The winner should face Schwarzenegger.

LoL how should they even last a minute against the Terminator^^

Van Damme is still a Legend for me, his movies are legendary! Who doesn't remember Bloodsport and Kickboxer?

I think he was and probably still is a good kickboxer, but 50 years thats a lot..

I knew this guy was going to grow old and still be athletic remember those nutty splits he did on Blood sport! That wasn't some fake shit lol.... And being the Black Belt as he is, we HAVE to see him fight Chuck Norris! Or the Cop Steven Seagal lol!

Wiki says Chuck Norris's record, based on tournament matches, is estimated to be 183-12-2, So bring it! Chuck Norris can kill Godzilla!

Van Damme used to be a good fighter but decided he would rather make a ton of money as a movie star. That was 30+ years ago though.

There will be no elbows in this fight as Damme doesn't want the extra risk of getting cut.

I don't think that the elbows would have made much of a difference. This should be a fun fight. For some reason.. I could see JLB cornering him.

it will be fun to see if his good friend (a certain mma fighter people sometimes talk about on here) will help him train a bit.
to bad this was not a few (and by that i mean many) years ago. I am still curious about this though and will for sure watch it

I cant see jc winning here. His opponent is no slouch and is way younger. But I will definately watch it.
