As reported earlier, Riddick Bowe's debut in Thai kickboxing ended with a thud in the second round on Friday. Wincing in pain and clutching his shins, the 45-year-old former heavyweight champion limped out of the ring in Pattaya, Thailand, and admitted: "It's much harder than boxing.”

Known as “Big Daddy," Bowe took a big beating from his 30-year-old Russian opponent Levgen Golovin, who assaulted the former champion with repeated kicks to the shins. Bowe lost his balance and fell five times before the bout was ended by technical knockout after his last fall.

"You can recover from a head shot or a body shot, but when you get kicked in the leg it lasts a long time," he said. "My leg is still hurting. I don't know how long it's been … fifteen minutes?"

Bowe's last boxing match was in 2008. He says he decided to try Muay Thai because he was bored with retirement and needs the cash. He made $150 000 from Friday's fight, organised by Thai promoters trying to increase the international appeal of Thailand's national sport.

The bout was held at an outdoor ring set up beside the beach in Pattaya, a town best known for its seaside red-light district. Bowe beat Evander Holyfield in 1992 to become the undisputed heavyweight champion. Now weighing 136 kg, Bowe was heavy and slow and barely landed a punch in Friday's fight.

Despite the pain in his legs, Bowe smiled for the cameras after the fight and mustered some optimism.

"I had a lot of fun. I'm going to do it again. Next time it's going to be different," he said. "I'll be back soon."

Bowe's opponent shook his head in disbelief when told the veteran boxer was not giving up on Muay Thai.

"It would be a big mistake. It's not for him," Golovin said. "He's too slow and a bit too old."

Hardly.....Riddick Bowe retired but thanks to a bunch of snakes surrounding him, he has practically no money whatsoever...signs autographs and takes pictures for a living at flea markets.  He's doing these Muay Thai fights to pay bills.....sad

Not really....the problem is the boxing is all that Riddick Bowe knows.  Prime example as to how promoters will take everything they can get from boxers and leave them high and dry when they are too old to fight

Not a bad payday to get his ass kicked...He was bored like they said, and he probably had a tad of fun, fighting...Just cuz you get old, does not mean that you lose that spirit to get in the ring again...I do not see it as an embaressment at all...Old guy got kicked around and lost, so what....

Hate seeing stuff like this.  Bad enough he is 45 but he has been through wars boxing (which makes it an old 45) and has no real experience in Muy Thai.  Even a mid level Muay Thai guy can destroy an upper level boxer in Muay thai rules, there's just a lot more going on in the fight.

Maybe Big Daddy should become one of the snakes?  Yes folks Big Daddy should take up employment with Vince and his snake oil company!  What does Vince say?

Bowe was not the most mentally stable guy when he was in his so-called prime! He is paying the bills I guess.
