In this edition of the Knockout of the Week we feature Michael McDonald vs. George Randolph.
McDonald and Randolph fought on August of 2003 at K-1 World Grand Prix 2003 in Las Vegas II. They met in the semi-finals of the tournament, and McDonald literally punched his ticket to the final in less than one minute.
For those not familiar with Michael McDonald, he was a Canadian Kickboxer. He was born in England, but his family immigrated to Canada when he was a child. He was known as the Black Sniper and is one of the most decorated Kickboxers from Canada.
He competed against the likes of Remy Bonjasky, Stefan Leko, and Peter Aerts in his prime. He won the K-1 USA GP three times, and was the runner up on two other occasions.
One of the biggest wins in his career came in 2001 when he knocked out K-1 and MMA superstar Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic in Australia. He was definitely one of the most exciting fighters from the K-1 era of the early 2000’s. He was also one of the first guys to rock the gladiator style trunks in the ring.
