RaSZi Defeats ElkY at Kickboxing (Video)
by Matt Kaufman, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer
Two good friends and legends of online poker, Lex ‘RaSZi’ Veldhuis and Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, decided in 2009 to face each other in a high-stakes kickboxing match.
As one would expect from professional gamblers, a massive amount of money would go to the victor- $100,000 from their opponent + additional cash from bets with others.
In his blog explaining the fight, RaSZi explained that he thought his athleticism and fighting experience would triumph over ElkY’s strength advantage.
The match finally took place in Marbella, Spain yesterday, and by its conclusion RaSZi’s superior fighting ability shined through and ElkY was defeated by knockout.
