    ewdfs does have a point actually. Knowing the ranks of those 5 would be a good start.
    Shoes vs no shoes does make a big difference, but I don't see how the rules would go towards the Savate champs in any other way. Savate did have low kicks. Since we're talking kickboxing and not MT I don't see what rules could go in the Frenchman's favour.

    Unless by "kickboxing" we're talking crap early full-contact karate, a 5-0 (3 - 2 in 1st round) result makes me agree with ewdfs. and I'm French

    I don't know what's worse, this post or that Wiki article. Gerard in Royce's guard?!

    Hey, I'm a noob, I guess I deserve some of that. But I couldn't find the date on the last post (not used to the layout yet) and I thought I was answering a previous poster's question about any savate fighters competing in K1. I was looking for threads about savate and this came up. Live and learn, I guess (and stay out of the way of trucks).

    Hey, Savate and Wing Chun both require slippers. Sorry aside from that very random fact, Savate is very pretty, like TKD, that is all.

    Sorry to necro, but the guy is called Gilles Le Duigou.
    You can see some images of his fight here, at the 4.50 mark.
