Planet Battle in Hong Kong lives up to its name. Why? Because the whole ring was filled with people throwing hands near the end of the Alain Ngalaini and Ramazan Ramazanov bout. Here is the video from the kickboxing event, which took place last weekend.
Alain Ngalaini threw the illegal headbutt, then it was Ramazan Ramazanov with the retaliatory elbow. Then it was chaos as both corners entered the ring and a melee ensued. I love how the P.A. announcer repeatedly yells “Enough! Enough! Enough!”
It’s too bad something like this happened because both are said to be world-class kickboxers. How detrimental it will be to their careers is anyone’s guess, but it certainly can’t help. Especially after the recent “It’s Showtime” incident, when Badr Hari was disqualified and stripped of his title after kicking Hesdy Gerges while he was trying to get up after a slip.
This type of behavior sets combat sports back after making so much progress in the mainstream. Promoters and sanctioning bodies need to continue with harsh penalties and fines for such actions.
