    Melvin was never really on my radar for hardest kickers. Hardest punchers sure, but kickers?

    Saki has a lot more KO wins than Rico. Rico is more of a volume striker and has never really been known for being a power striker compared to the likes of Saki as mentioned, Aerts, Lebanner, Hari, etc etc.

    He has some very powerful kicks but hardly the hardest kicker.

    Can we give TS a ban? He's already on a double yellow. It's been long overdue.

    We talking p4p or overall. Because heaps of thai's kick harder, and I believe the likes of aerts or cro cop generated more force.

    I don't know why this thread was moved since it was based on fights, not technique. And the kickboxing forum is the fight forum

    You posted in the Kickboxing and Muay Thai forum about a MMA fighter being the hardest kicker. That has nothing to do with Kickboxing fights. Thankfully the mods moved your piece of shit thread to the garbage dump that is F11.

    Manhoeff seemed to be one of those fighters who seemed to have ungodly power but for whatever reason, didn't get the knock outs to substantiate that power. Pat Barry was another one like this.

    Someone's getting upset it seems :)

    Half of his kickboxing fights were in the 90's and there's not even video recordings of them. Go back to KO'ing jackets mate.

    height affects the power of the kick, depending on the persons flexibility..........someone very flexible should be able to kick to the head with the same power as to the leg......someone without the flexiblity, will be able to kick the leg, much stronger than the head.

    Don't think so. It's been shown that punching downward generates more force than upward, due to gravity. It's the same physique to kicks.
