A week ago we featured a clip of Samart Payakaroon doing "The Matrix" against Juan Meza. Payakaroon now gets a second entry into weird boxing thanks to this clip from Thai movie "The Bodyguard" (2006).

The movie, despite it's title, isn't a remake of the US smash but is an action comedy that everyone should watch, especially for scenes like the one below.

Amazingly the film features not only Samart but also both Galaxy brothers. I don't think any other movie has such an illustrious cast of boxers.

Whilst the clip, thanks to mrsierraleone007, has very little to actually do with boxing it still seems worth of a place in weird boxing because it's Samart, who looks amazing for a man in his mid 40's, it's funny and because it's a a bit of fun from one of the great Muay Thai fighters of all time
 
We all know that Keanu Reeves in "The Matrix" could do some weird stuff such as avoiding bullets with ease. We've got every reason to believe that he script writers of "The Matrix" however were hardcore boxing fans who had seen Thai great Samart Payakaroon (21-2, 12).

Samart was a former kickboxer turned boxer (like many top Thai's) and in the 1980's he became the WBC Super Bantamweight champion. Unfortunately his pro career was somewhat short lasting just 23 bouts though he did fight in 4 world title bouts claiming wins over Lupe Pintor and Juan Meza whilst losing to Jeff Fenech and Eloy Rojas.

The highlight of Samart's career however must be the way he influenced the character of "Neo", as you can see in the clip below.
