Jean Claude Van Damme ( ITV4 )

Has anyone been watching? Not a fan? I have to say Its an eye opener Into the guys personal life and just started watching recently, I see he Is to make a comeback, Fighting In the ring In November of this year, a 'Rocky Balboa' style comeback fight against a ferocious Olympic champion Thai kick boxer 12 years younger than him( JCVD Is fifty now )
Do you think the ITV4 viewers will get to see the fight live? Do you think he can pull It off?
The show...

Just found this video of him doing a Karate Kicking demonstration only 5 year ago.

He is leaving his arms a bit wide and lingering too long with his leg in the air, both making him vulnerable to counters. He is also leading with his knee rather than his foot, which reduces the power in the strike. His is a sport style, though, so the reduced effect reduces the risk of hurting his opponent too much.  Smiley
All credit to him, though, he is in better shape and a lot more capable than most 45 to 50 year olds.
