Kickboxer Melvin Manhoef vs. super-heavyweight YouTube star
Dutch YouTube star ‘Qucee’ chose an unusual way to celebrate his channel ‘Supergaande’ reaching 200,000 subscribers – picking a fight with fearsome kickboxing star Melvin Manhoef.
Manhoef, aka ‘No Mercy’ is a fearsome fighter who has fought almost a hundred times over the course of his 21-year professional career, competing in both kickboxing and mixed martial arts.
The 40 year-old is best known for his brutal knockout power, with 27 of his 37 kickboxing wins coming by way of KO, while 28 of his 30 victories in MMA have also been due to strikes.
With that in mind, it’s fair to say that Manhoef is one of the last people on earth you’d ever want to let punch or kick you.
’Qucee’ did have one thing in his favor though, as he’s an extremely large man who weighs over 300lbs and also had a significant height advantage over the 5ft 8”, 185lb Manhoef.
That wasn’t going to phase ‘No Mercy’ though, given that he’s fought at everything from welterweight right the way through to heavyweight over the course of his career.
After some good-natured banter between the two fighters it was time to get down to business and let the beating commence!
’Qucee’ started confidently enough, winging some wild haymakers in Manhoef’s direction, but the veteran was too savvy for that and easily moved away from those telegraphed blows.
Luckily for ‘Qucee’, Manhoef didn’t fully live up to his nickname as he resisted the urge to go for his chin or unleash his venomous kicking arsenal, and instead focused mainly on punching his expansive mid-section instead.
That led to numerous ripping hooks to the body that quickly took the wind out of ‘Qucee’s’ sails and left him reeling across the gym, cowering and eventually opting to just run away!
The big man would end up being dropped three times with body shots over the course of three short rounds, and it’s safe to say that he won’t be in a hurry to call up Manhoef for a rematch when he reaches 300,000 subscribers!
