    More like world class kickboxer VS karate point fighter with no kickboxing experience.

    It is like a cheaper version of May - Mc and less relevant that the actual fight that matter aka Tenshin VS Takeru.

    Horiguchi literally has no chance at winning

    Tenshin is amazing but watching his last fight i dont think he is ready for a veteran like takeru. He still growing, and although he has the technique to compete with the best, he will need to up his strength and conditioning.

    I will watch just to see his game plan and if he can surprise Tenshin or not. It will be fun while it lasts.

    Tenshins timing and accuracy is way superior than Takerus. Takeru is tough though and bigger.

    Cool fight, I got Tenshin by 3rd round tko/ko. There is a chance that Horiguchi could run around and get slowly outpointed though, but the ring would make it hard.

    They should go to K-1 and prove it then. But for now, Takeru is the man to beat in that weight class.

    Are you crazy? Rodthung and Suakim fighting in K-1? LOLOLOLOOL

    It is only after a Thai proves themselves in Thailand that they can graduate to the to the great stage of K-1. They don't deserve to tread on the holy ground where Takeru competes.

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    When all is said and done he didn't do that badly at all.

    I don't see any point in the fight where this happened

    As expected he pointfought the entire fight and got beat whenever Tenshin closed in on him to smash. The low guard, darting style just doesn't work in kickboxing.

    His style only really works for MMA with takedowns and small gloves and grappling

    He was unsettled and stumbled back after a couple of shots but not actually stunned. Just took a while to adjust to Horiguchi's darting movement and feints, Tenshin also seemed much more tense/nervous.

    Horiguchi would definitely trouble a lot of top kickboxers - Tenshin is one of the best in the world at making reads and finding the best spots to counter, took him multiple rounds to find Guchi with the left hand.

    huh? He fought the first 2 round better than 95% of Tenshins opponents. Wouldn't be surprised if he beats Taiga if they fought.
