G4 TV To Air Muay Thai Program This Friday – Head Kick Legend

G4 TV has added a show that should be of great interest to our readers.  This Friday night, July 23, at 8:00pm EST, the network will air Muay Thai fights from Champion of Champions 2 in Jamaica.

This event was held last summer and featured top level Muay Thai stars from around the world.  The 1 hour program will include 3 fights from that event: Nathan “Carnage” Corbett v. Tyrone Spong, Paul Slowinski v. Patrice Quarteron, and Clifton Brown v. Kaoklai Kaennorsing.  All are solid fights, and in particular, if you haven’t seen Spong v. Carnage, that is one to check out.

While not possessing the same reach as a network like Spike, G4 still can be found in a significant market.  With HDNet being the only place for US fans to see kickboxing, this news comes as a very welcome surprise.  Any chance to see Muay Thai like this is great, and the fact that it is a strong card with top ranked fighters only helps.

With the short lead time and departure from G4’s normal video-game centric programming, I am not expecting this to do particularly strong numbers, but hopefully it will catch some eyes and turn into more than just a one time thing. It will also be interesting to see exactly how they handle the presentation.  Will it focus more on the tradition of Muay Thai (as the Champion of Champions event itself did) or will they present a more fast-paced, heavily edited program?

Be sure to check it out – Champion of Champions 2 on G4, Friday night at 8:00 pm EST.
