Jo-Wilfried Tsonga does a Thai version of Muhammad Ali

Finally we get to see Jo-Wilfried Tsonga doing something we all wanted to see! Yes it's boxing! Only that this is the Thai version. (Updates: Apparently Tsonga went into the boxing ring before back in May during the Hamburg Masters Series. Check out Lana's Great Tennis Photos.)

He was practicing during a Thai boxing demonstration to promote the ATP Thailand tennis Open 2008 in Bangkok.

Don't we all just love seeing the Muhammad Ali lookalike in shorts, half naked and delivering some punches here?

These photos are priceless!

Tsonga had a chance to learn some tips from Somluck Khamsing, a former Olympic boxing gold medalist. He even managed to land a left on the Olympian.

By the way Tsonga just defeated Lukas Dlouhy in the second round 7-6, 3-6, 7-6. Pretty nerve wreaking, huh?
