And the winner is: Buakaw Por Pramuk of Thailand
He's a Thai boxing superstar I think. I like this guy in the ring. He is playful, he has charisma, he has attitude, he is intrepid but exhibits grace on the otherhand and definitely, he is strong, ferocious and unforgiving against his enemy. Every punch and every kick demonstrated the will to win. That's what it takes to be a champion in my own opinion.
But hey, look at that body, the muscles in every inch of his body is exploding while that of his Japanese opponent (Tomoaki) was rather skinny than muscled, and, pale.
I guess it was a mismatch... hehe. I don't necessarily enjoy watching extreme and sometimes bloody sports like this but shooting it is a different story. It was an experience and it was fun.
