Before we get into the arena, here is a brief background on each of our fighters.
Yuri Boyka first made his appearance in the Undisputed series in the second installment of the movie. Portrayed by Scott Adkins, Yuri Boyka was introduced to the series as a professional Russian prison fighter. We don’t know a lot about Boyka before he enters prison but from his stint during his incarceration, it became clear what his main objective was, to become the most complete fighter in the world.
Boyka was unafraid to let others know what he thought about himself as he would regularly boast to any one who cared to listen that he was the best and most complete fighter. A violent and intolerant person, Boyka didn’t allow anyone to challenge him or step in his way. Something a fellow prisoner, Chambers, was not aware of. Despite many warnings from others given to Chambers to steer clear of making trouble with Boyka, Chambers did the direct opposite; starting a fight with Boyka.
Eventually, the two lads agreed to face off in a fight. A self confident Boyka boasted that he could beat Chambers with his bare hands alone while making fun of Chambers’ Boxing abilities. However, Chambers surprised Boyka with his fighting skills. Boyka was only spared the shame of losing thanks to a drugged drink that was given to Chambers during the fight. However, Chambers, who later discovered that he was drugged during the fight, went into a frenzy, killing the two people who drugged him and requesting a rematch with Boyka. Boyka would accept the challenge, a decision that would turn out to be a grave mistake. He became a humble version of his former self. And in a bid to regain some pride, Boyka entered a new tournament organized by his former boss, Gaga.
The inner prison tournament called The Prison Spetz Competition was Boyka’s opportunity to not only redeem his image but also to clear his prison record and secure an early release. Against all odds and in one of the most excruciating final matches you’d ever see, Boyka overcame great pain and managed to claw himself out of the hands of defeat to win the final match of the competition and become the undisputed champion of the first Prison Spetz Competition, while also winning his freedom from prison. As a fighter, Boyka is known for his sheer strength, which becomes a real asset for him when facing bigger opposition. With his powerful strikes, he’s capable of incapacitating his opponents. On one occasion, he killed a fighter with just one blow to the head.His stamina and endurance are also two of Boyka’s greatest strengths. He fought in an entire tournament with just one knee, was shot three times and still managed to kill an enemy before tiring out.
Boyka is truly a fighter’s nightmare. But he’s not just a rough brawler, he’s an expert fighter, skilled in a variety of martial arts including MMA, Judo, Muay Thai, Boxing, Taekwondo, and Jujutsu.
Standing in the way of Yuri Boyka is the town hero and monk, Ting, from the popular movie Ong-Bak. Portrayed by Tony Jaa, Ting was a poor monk from the backwater village of Ban Nong Pradu in Thailand. The story began in this town where a group of men led by a man named Don who works for a Bangkok crime Lord stole the sacred head of the Ong-Bak statue. Following the theft, the entire village was enraged. The villagers banded together and managed to collect all the money they could to fund the revenge mission of a certain monk who happened to be Ting.
Ting’s mission was simple; retrieve the head of Ong-Bak. The responsibility for this was put on Ting’s shoulders as he was considered by the villagers to be the most physically capable youth for the task. On arriving at Bangkok, Ting met an old friend, a former monk called Humlae, who now went by the name George. Humlae offered to help Ting find Don and retrieve the head of Ong-Bak. The duo also teamed up with the beautiful but greedy Muay Lek to complete Ting’s mission. Ting’s alliance with these two was not without a world of trouble but somehow, thanks to Ting’s resilience, he managed to stay on course and ultimately complete his mission; recovering the head of Ong-Bak and returning to his village as a hero.
Throughout the movie, Ting’s incredible fighting ability is evident. He is a supreme athlete and an incredible acrobat who moves with precision and poise. In addition to this, Ting is also a high level Muay Thai fighter. In combat, he uses powerful elbows, shins and knees to deliver devastating blows to his opponents. When fighting against bigger opponents, Ting’s acrobatic skills come to the fore, executing impressive maneuvers and delivering dangerous elbow strikes. He is also adept with weapons and his favourite options are the staffs, sticks and tonfa.
Now that we have met our two elite fighters, it’s time for the fight to begin. To settle this fight, as always, we will judge our fighters across 4 major categories; fighting pedigree, physique, skill and improvisation. For each category, we will reward a maximum of 10 points. In the end, the fighter with the higher cumulative points will be declared the winner. Let’s begin!
It’s clear that both Boyka and Ting are well trained fighters. However, we’ll give this category to Yuri Boyka for obvious reasons. While Ting is an expert in Muay Thai, Boyka is an expert in an array of martial art styles from Boxing to MMA, Taekwondo, Jujutsu, you name it. It’s 9 points to Boyka and 7 to Ting.
Boyka stands at 5’10” but weighs a staggering 92 kg of pure muscle. On the other hand, Ting stands at 5’6” and weighs 65 kg. It’s a no contest here. Ting will struggle to cope with a taller and much heavier Yuri Boyka. It’s 9 points to Boyka again and 6 to Ting.
These guys are supreme athletes and talented martial artists who are highly proficient at what they do. We are tempted to tilt in Boyka’s favour here but we cannot ignore Ting’s genius either. So, we’ll call this one a tie. 8 points for both fighters.
Ting’s ability to glide through the air effortlessly and deliver lightning-fast elbow strikes is extremely impressive. And for this reason, we’ll give him the lead when it comes to improvisation. 9 points to Ting, 7 to Boyka.
And so with a total of 33 points to Ting’s 30 points, Yuri Boyka does enough to beat Ting and leave him licking his wounds.
