This fight took place in June of 2000 at King of the Cage 4. Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig is a Lightweight Champion kickboxer who trains under the legend, Bas Rutten. Bang takes on Shad Smith, a brawler who has claimed to be in over 1,000 street fights.
This is the fight that got me interested in taking Muay Thai. In an actual street fight anything can happen, but in a cage/ring a street fighter’s skill can only go so far… as to not getting destroyed quicker than someone with no experience at all.
NOTE: Check out Shad Smith sporting his Airwalk shoes in the cage.
