I wanted to share with you my first international fight experience as a kickboxer. From the late 80s to the late 90s I competed in American Kickboxing (also known as Full Contact Rules Kickboxing (above the waist kicks). In 1994 World Champion Steve Shepherd promoted USA vs. Russia in West Palm Beach. Two 5-man teams competed against each other with USA edging out Russia. I was the middleweight representative fighting against Russian Kickboxing champion Alexander Voronin. Here it is.
