Michael Jai White was Iceman Chambers in the movie and he was a boxer. He was roaming around Russia for boxing matches but unfortunately, the police framed him for possession of cocaine in the cut out Bible and that landed him to jail. In the prison, he discovered illegal martial art matches between inmates. The warden Gaga asked him to fight Boyka who was the best inmates in the Russian prison. However, he refused to fight at first but unable to bear the brutalities of the guards and detaining him in the sewers was so miserable that he unwillingly agreed to fight Boyka.

He was fighting a good fight in the first round against Boyka but during the interval, Boyka’s gangs manhandled Steven who was Michael’s corner man to give him spike water. They had mixed the water with sedatives and so in the fight that ensued, Iceman Chambers was badly defeated. When he came back to his sense, he found that Steven had hanged himself out of guilt for the spiked water. He confronted Boyka and demanded for a rematch.

The preparation for the second fight was ready. It was a long and intense fight with Boyka’s leg flying high and so Iceman Chambers knew that he should not prolong the fight. He changed the strategy and applied the technique of a joint lock, which Crot had taught him and so the moment he got the chance, he grabbed and broke the leg of Boyka. Iceman Chambers was the last man standing in Undisputed II. He was released from the prison and he even secured the release of Crot who had a happy reunion with his niece and brings the curtain down.

From what we see, Iceman Chambers was the last man standing to defeat Boyka, the defending champion of the Russian prison. The officials and warden were making money at the expense of the fighters for their personal gains. The action movie is not only indication of the skills of the artists but also indication of the existence of corrupt officials within the four walls of the prison.

Bruce Lee is known for the power, precision and speed coupled with one-inch punch.

Bruce Lee opened three martial art schools at different places and taught even non- Chinese people in his school but the Chinese had the tradition that they couldn’t teach Chinese martial art to other people and so he faced a fierce challenge by one Chinese Kung Fu master. He accepted the challenge and put him down within three minutes and so he continued with his teaching of martial art in his school.

Why did Mike Tyson Fail as a Boxer in the Mid of his Career?

When we look back at the early days of his life, he had lived a wild life that most people had not lived and so he was tend to come back to his old unruly life of his younger days. At the peak of his career, he married actress Robin Givens but their marriage was punctuated due to domestic violence. The actor described life with Mike Tyson as torture and hell.

He went on to marry for the second and the third time and have eight children from different wives. Finally, the turmoil of his married life had an effect on his training and stability of his mind. He could not focus well in his training and so Buster Douglas knocked him out for the first time in his career as a boxer in 1990.

Finally, rape against beauty queen Desiree of Washington at Indianapolis hotel took him to prison for six years. When he was produced in the court, he had the attitude that he had the entitlement to have any woman he wanted. Eventually, his behavior outside the ring ruined his career and reputation to the least.

The Beginning of the End of his Downfall

The fight with Evander Holly Field was the beginning of the downfall of Tyson’s career as a boxer. He bit off a chunk of Holly Field’s ears in the ring. Though he was an iron man in the ring, he was a rapist on the other side of his life and that brought his downfall as a heavy weight champion.

Jean Claude Van Damme, “The Muscleman of Brussels.”

Jean Claude Van Damme, one of the super action heroes of Hollywood was born at Brussels in Belgium on 18 October 1960. As a child, he was skinny and so to build up muscles, his father enrolled him in Karate lessons at the age of eleven. He was a quick learner and so he participated and earned many laurels in Karate tournaments during his teenage. His talents and skills in martial arts made him rose to stardom at a very young age.

Why is Van Damme Aging so Fast?

Only God knows the truth why he is aging so fast unlike his contemporaries however, his fans have a few assumptions on what makes him aged faster than the others of his time.

  • Perhaps he did over exercise during his training to gain mastery of the different forms of martial arts. In fact, martial art requires a lot of stretching of the hands and the legs to exert the muscles. Daily practice makes the muscles grow bigger and makes the skin tight to have a solid body. The fibers of the muscles running across his body is what most of his fans admire the most. While trying to achieve perfection in the art, he must have over stretched and so when he stopped the practice, may be his muscles contracted to have a loosen skin and probably that gives him the ungraceful look at the age of barely fifty four.
  • The handsome artist looked perfect but sadly, he is not perfect because he has bipolar disorder. Surprisingly, he had extreme mood swings since his childhood days but it was diagnosed for bipolar disorder only in 1998 and so he had to take pills to keep him from stress, and probably that’s one of the reasons for his early aging.
  • The other probable reason could be his food and drinking habits. Though no one knows the exact reasons, it is quite probable that the kind of food he eats directly or indirectly affects his health and contributed to his early ageing.

The Best of Van Damme’s Movies at a Glance

  • Cyborg 1989
  • Lion heart 1990
  • Double Impact 1991
