HIT WITH A KISS

WATCH: Two Kickboxers Move In For The Kill, Er, Kiss

In 1995 South African kickboxer Michael Bernardo met France’s Jerome Le Banner in the ring for a semi-final round in Tokyo. The opponents move in for the kill, lock eyes and …kiss each other.

Today at 40, Le Banner is still a champion athlete, having most recently won contests this summer. Unfortunately, Bernardo committed suicide last year following a long battle with depression.
