Raymond “Real Deal” Daniels scores a rare 2-touch 360 kick and his opponent crumbles to the canvas

The sport of kickboxing has yet to really take off in the same way the mixed martial arts has in the past 10 years. With some of the best knockouts in combat sports, it is surprising that kickboxing still hasn’t made it to the mainstream. This might be the most incredible kick that has ever been landed in any fight.

Raymond Daniels has shown some of the flashiest techniques in kickboxing. The karate master has won dozens of world championships in kickboxing and sport karate. In May of 2014, he took on Fran├žois Ambang at Glory 16 in Broomfield, Colorado. The result of the fight has been called the Knockout of the Century by the Glory organization.

Daniels’ most recent performance was against Nieky Holzken for the vacant Glory Welterweight Title. The Real Deal was battered by Holzken in their first match up 6 months prior, losing by TKO in round 3 after suffering four knockdowns. Daniels came out strong, winning the first two rounds of the rematch. In round 3, Holzken landed a solid knee that cut Daniels over the eye, resulting in another TKO loss.

The Real Deal has opened his own personal training and nutrition institute called ICE Martial Arts. Daniels will continue to fight in hopes of another shot at a professional kickboxing world title. The former police officer has become a fan favorite due to his aggressive style and highlight reel knockouts. four of his seven professional wins have come by way of spinning kick knockout.
