All I'm asking about is whether said matches really took place and if there any pictures, or if any pictures exist of Oyama in his youth.

Quite the contrary, I feel that your topic is a good one.
I was simply trying to point out the idiocy of the post I was quoting, both for its obviousness and its lack of relevence to the subject at hand.

Thanks, but I'll still end up with a million "I saw a Kyokushin vs Muay thai fight once" replies, which isn't what the thread is about AT ALL.

"Even one as good as Matsui is susceptible to the flaws of the Kyokushin style. In the 3rd World Open, he was hit again & again to the face by a flurry of punches from an Indian fighter who did not care much for the rules. Matsui was brought down a few times due to these "foul punches". The Indian fighter was of course disqualified, but from here we can see that unlike the first generation students of Oyama (& he himself), the later generations of Karate fighters knew not how to defend their head from punches by a good boxer!"
I like this bit.

Andy Hug only did a bit of cross training in boxing/muay thai.
He was a hardened Kyokushin fighter for many years before that. It was his basis in Kyokushin which took him to where he got to.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

I think it said Andy Hug always considered himself a Karateka.
