This fighter was and still is a real predator in the mixed martial arts arena. On account of the merciless Melvin Manhoff 29 knockout wins in fights under the rules of mixed martial arts. And it’s hard to count how many opponents he sent to canvas in Muay Thai, kickboxing and K-1 fights. Of course, we have before us one of the most aggressive and spectacular fighters in the entire world of martial arts.
In 2003, Melvin was 27 years old, in his prime, shattered many opponents in various striking tournaments and successfully began his career in MMA, knocking out four opponents and drawing one fight. But at the 2H2H tournament, he was going to be tested by the old school. After all, he was opposed by another most dangerous predator of those years.
It was the legendary Dutch destroyer Bob Schreiber. The pioneer of world mixed martial arts, the winner of the first M-1 heavyweight tournament in history, by that time he had already fought almost every elite fighter in his weight. At the time of the fight with Manhof, Schreiber was already 38 years old, and before this fight he had lost three times in a row.
But an experienced veteran without a shadow of a doubt entered the duel against a real knockout machine. Not only was there a real enmity between the Dutch teams at that time, Manhoef also knocked out a student of Bob Schreiber in one of the previous fights. So no one planned to retreat in this battle.
