Photos: Golovin Punishes Riddick Bowe, TKO in Two

PATTAYA, Thailand -- Wincing in pain and clutching his shins, Riddick Bowe ended his debut in Thai kickboxing with a thud in the second round.

The 45-year-old former world heavyweight boxing champion came to a rude awakening on Friday that Muay Thai is just as punishing.

Bowe was assaulted by kicks to the shins from his 30-year-old Russian opponent Levgen Golovin.

The fighter known as "Big Daddy" lost his balance and fell five times before the bout was ended by technical knockout on his last fall.

Bowe's last boxing fight was in 2008. He says he decided to try Muay Thai because he was bored with retirement and needs the cash. He made $150,000 from Friday's fight.

Bowe beat Evander Holyfield in 1992 to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

If you're Bowe, how do you stand there next to the guy that just gave you the beatdown of your life, and you smile and hold up your fist like you're some fighter or you did something productive??? Aside from…

I imagine when a fighter is on the rise, they see themselves as a champion with a bright and limitless future. Who looks into the future and sees themselves as a fat slob that goes from carnival to carnival all…
