ORIGIN OF NICKNAME

Top contender Rodney Batiste nicknamed Thériault“The Iceman”, after challenging Jean-Yves in his second PKA world title defense, owing to the champion’s intimidating icy stare and cool demeanor in the ring, to his dangerous knockout punch and to his hometown habit of defending his title inside an ice hockey arena in a kickboxing ring assembled atop a sheet of ice.

 

 

SPECIALTY FIGHTING SKILLS

Extremely analytical, aggressive generalship coupled with a finely-honed peek-a-boo defense, a dangerous right hand and power kicks … especially the front and round kicks.  Well-integrated machinegun kick-punch combinations.

LEGEND


KICKBOXING

Any stand-up combative sport where competitors fight with kicks and punches for a knockout or multi-judge decision over scheduled rounds divided by rest periods. Throughout the 1980s, the STAR System World Kickboxing Ratings strictly distinguished between kickboxing which prohibited clinch-fighting and muay Thai which permitted clinch-fighting. STAR regarded kickboxing and muay Thai as different sports. Since that era, combative sports have become more broadly divided between kickboxing and mixed martial arts. Sanctioning bodies have embraced competition and established kickboxing titles under multiple rule formats. For the sake of the historic record, all prominent rule formats have been indicated within ring record compilations.

 

Predominant Kickboxing Rule Formats

            Without Clinch-Fighting

INTERNATIONAL – low kicks and footsweeps allowed, no clinch-fighting, no throws (i.e. freestyle, boxe française-savate, WKA style)

FULL-CONTACT – no striking below the waist, no clinch-fighting, no throws, minimum or continual kick requirement (i.e. full-contact karate, American kickboxing, PKA style)

 

            Clinch-Fighting Optional

EXPERIMENTAL – variable rule schemes from the early formative period of kickboxing (i.e. USKA, WSMAC, NKL), or special negotiated rules to enable a mix-match between contestants from otherwise different combative sports (i.e. kickboxer versus wrestler)

 

            With Clinch-Fighting

ASIAN – low kicks and sweeps allowed, knees to body and legs allowed, limited clinch-fighting allowed, no throws (i.e. K-1, modified muay Thai, muay Euro, Japanese kick-boxing)

CHINESE – low kicks and sweeps allowed, knees to body and legs allowed, limited clinch-fighting allowed, throws and takedowns allowed (i.e. san shou, sanda)

THAI – low kicks allowed, knee and elbow strikes allowed, clinch-fighting permitted, no throws, scoring based on classic techniques (i.e. muay Thai, Thai boxing)

 

Sanctioning Groups

Official Outcomes

CKBA – Canadian Kick Boxing Association

DECISION – three judges score for the winner

ISKA – International Sport Karate Association

MAJORITY DECISION – two judges score for the winner

PKA – Professional Karate Association

SPLIT DECISION – two judges score for the winner, one for the loser

PKC – Professional Kickboxing Commission

DRAW – the judges score for both contestants evenly

STAR – Standardized Tournaments And Ratings System

MAJORITY DRAW – two judges score evenly

 

SPLIT DRAW – one judge scores for each contestant, one even

 

DSQ (DISQUALIFICATION) – regarded the same as a TKO; typically the winner has been determined by penalty for a deliberate foul or for consecutive round violations of the minimum kick requirement

 

TDRAW – technical draw; fight stopped without basis for a decision

 

KO – knockout

 

KICK-KO (KKO) – kick-knockout

 

KICK-TKO(TKKO) – technical kick-knockout

 

TKO – technical knockout

 

NO-CONTEST – outcome officially set aside

 

NO-DECISION – competitive bout conducted without judges














 

STAR Equalization Findings

For purposes of world-rated kickboxing competition and record keeping, STAR equalization findings differentiate between amateur and professional bouts, exclude bouts from other related combative sports (boxing, muay Thai, grappling), as well as arbitrate any peculiarities that occurred in the early and unruly era of kickboxing’s rapidly changing rules and uneven standards for fair competition. The STAR System had no interest in advancing one competitor over another and never interfered with a competitor’s official kickboxing record beyond the aforementioned distinctions.

 

*1

Thériault v Reed: Reed quit after being knocked down from a right uppercut to the head.  Thériault voluntarily vacated his ISKA and PKC world titles upon official retirement from the ring following this bout. 

*2

Thériault v Roufus: Although knocked down in the 4th round for first time in his 46-bout career, Roufus dominated the later rounds when Thériault appeared to run out of steam.

*3

Thériault v Patridis: ISKA title not at stake. Prior to this bout, Thériault chastised the local athletic commission for the sloppy scoring of its judges. Later, although Thériault never pointed fingers, some ring watchers believed that this decision inappropriately went against Thériault in retaliation for his advocacy of improved judging standards.

*4

Thériault v de Snoo: 6,200 spectators. Netherlander de Snoo received repeated warnings and point deductions for illegal low kicks before his disqualification for excessive rule violations. Thériault had scored multiple knockdowns and was dominating the bout on points when the referee halted the bout.

*5

Thériault v Kaman: Thériault did not answer the bell for the 6th round owing to an aggravated back injury sustained during training.  Kaman came in overweight; ISKA world title declared vacant.  Kaman retained WKA world title.

*6

Thériault v Bergeron-1: 2,500 spectators.

*7

Thériault v Thurman-1: 10,000 spectators.  Referee stopped the fight following an incapacitating eye cut principally inflicted by front kicks.  Thériault earned his biggest single-bout purse to that point.  Backed by a multi-millionaire promoter, this bout headlined the most-hyped event in the history of the PKA sanctioning group; also likely in the history of the sport.

*8

Thériault v Brewer-2: Over 3,200 spectators.

*9

Thériault v Wilson: Capacity 8,000 spectators.  Fought without formal sanction, each fighter agreed to select two judges. The two journalists selected by the Wilson camp brought in scores of 117-115 and 118-113 for Wilson, and the two judges selected by Thériault's camp brought in scores of 116-119 and 116-118 for Thériault.  This fight reportedly drew the biggest live gate net profit for any kickboxing event in North America to that time, about $100,000 CAD.

*10

Thériault v Batiste-2: Near-capacity 7,881 spectators. 

*11

Thériault v Ford: 1,500 spectators.

*12

Thériault v Hopkins: 6,137 spectators.

*13

Thériault v Jones: 4,000 spectators.

*14

Thériault v Wright: 4,000 spectators.

*15

Thériault v Macaruso: 5,237 spectators.  Macaruso was penalized a point for holding in rounds 3,4,5,6 and 9.  Final scores for Thériault: 100-82, 100-82, 100-84.

*16

Thériault v Bowden: 5,026 spectators.

*17

Thériault v Roop-3: 5,110 spectators.  Stunned multiple times throughout the bout, Roop did not answer the bell for round 7. 

*18

Thériault v Richardson: 2,500 spectators.  Unranked Richardson could not answer the bell for the 7th round.

*19

Thériault v Scott: Scott disqualified for minimum kick violations at the end of 4 rounds.

*20

Thériault v Dourant: 1,700 spectators.  Referee Ron Desjardins halted fight at the end of round 2 owing to cuts that closed both of Dourant’s eyes. 

*21

Thériault v Batiste-1: 2,500 spectators.  Despite scoring the first knockdown against Batiste in a one-sided effort, this match marked the first time a Thériault bout lasted 12 full rounds.  Final scores in all Thériault’s favor: 120-104, 120-105, 118-103.  Afterward Batiste, who had predicted his own victory by KO in the 7th, was asked what it would take to beat the champion.  The challenger replied, “Kicks, punches … maybe an elephant gun.”

*22

Thériault v McMorris: 1,700 spectators.  McMorris came out of recent retirement with 4-days’ notice for this scheduled 7-round non-title bout to replace Dave Brummit who had been sidelined by pneumonia.

*23

Thériault v Biggs: 4,000 spectators.  Biggs ducked under Thériault’s straight right into a round-kick into the forehead that connected with the shin, opening a cut.  Referee Truman Irving halted the fight.  The referee initially told Biggs’s corner that the bout may be called a technical draw but, after conferring with PKA Vice President Joe Corley regarding no-fault fouls, he finally declared a TKO.  A protest filed by Biggs’s manager was not sustained.  Thériault became the first Canadian to win a world championship in a combative sport since boxer Jimmy McLarnin in 1933.  A few years later, the PKA changed its rules to reflect the pro-boxing practice of declaring a fight stopped by cuts in the first round as a technical draw.

*24

Thériault v Poore: 1,200 spectators. 

*25

Thériault v Narvaez-2: PKA championship elimination bout. When Narvaez’s instructor Ray Martin was selected as referee, Thériault’s corner advised that he pull out of the fight. Thériault instead determined that he must win by knockout. In the sixth round, Thériault knocks down Narvaez with three straight rights. When Narvaez pulls himself up by grabbing the ring ropes, the referee gives him a standing 8-count, wipes his gloves and continues to talk to him for another six or seven seconds until the bell rings. In total, it’s a 17-second long count. PKA Joe Corley as color commentator for ESPN noted that fighters were not supposed to be saved by the bell, but had been in Narvaez’s case.

*26

Thériault v Hollett-2:Thériault suffered from food poisoning which adversely affected his performance.

*27

Thériault v Narvaez-1: 1,000 spectators.  Former PKA world champion Dr. Eddie Andujar, Narvaez’s cousin, worked the corner and protested that referee Wally Slocki stopped the bout too fast.

*28

Thériault v Rodriguez: This bout was broadcast nationally in the US over NBC-TV as the semi-main to the Benny Urquidez-Rick Simerly world title fight.  Former boxing champion Ken Norton provided expert color commentary.  Legendary tournament karate champion and WKA co-founder Mike Stone refereed.  Karate champ-turned-movie star Chuck Norris sat in the audience as a special guest. 

   At the time of the event, the WKA was undergoing a period of rapid rule adjustment.  The organization encouraged international matchmaking between North American, Asian and European competitors by allowing muay Thai-style low kicks to the outside thigh.  This “leg kick” technique was so powerful against an unacquainted opponent that, in Europe, it was nicknamed “the great equalizer”.  A skilled low kicker could defeat an otherwise superior athlete by constantly whacking away with the shin bone into an opponent’s thigh muscles, keeping him off-balance, causing his legs to spasm and draining his endurance.  Most professional fighters required two years to master both the low kick technique and its various defenses.  

   Because Rodriguez then ranked among only a handful of expert low-kickers in the US, the WKA agreed to exclude low kicks from this bout.  However, the promoter neglected to inform Thériault’s camp that the WKA defined the traditional footsweep technique differently from other sanctioning groups.  In the WKA, footsweeps were not restricted to boot-to-boot motions.  The kung-fu-style shin-into-calf sweep as well as the drop-to-the-ground spinning sickle sweep were also permitted.  During the bout, Rodriguez blended the low kick with a kung-fu sweep to spin Thériault around 360-degrees into a hard oncoming left hook.  Thériault’s corner immediately protested, but was not sustained. 

   In 1983, a STAR administrative inquiry determined:  1) Both WKA president Howard Hanson and Thériault’s manager John Therien entirely concurred about what had occurred in this bout.  2) Although Rodriguez had not technically violated any WKA rule, including the low kick exclusion, the protest from Thériault’s corner nevertheless had merit.  Whether by design or by unintended consequences, Jean-Yves Thériault had been subjected to an unfair competitive disadvantage because he was not provided with reasonable opportunity to prepare his defensive tactics against a kicking sweep.  3) The WKA should have been more forthcoming about its evolving rule distinctions.  4) A formal review panel should have been convened by the WKA to consider a final disposition of no-contest. 

   The WKA subsequently rejected STAR’s recommendation for a review panel because no title had been at stake.

29

Thériault v Hollett-1: Over 1,000 spectators.

*30

Thériault v Kosycki: Sellout 1,500 spectators.

*31

Thériault v Sutherland:Owing to a cut above the eye,Thériault did not answer the bell for the 3rd round. Sutherland later fought for the WBA and WBC light-heavyweight boxing world titles and, 1984, won the IBF super middleweight boxing world title.

*32

Thériault v Simard: Simard did not answer the bell for the 2nd round.
