Thai Fight with Buakaw
By Mike LNg
Buakaw Por Pramuk even outside of K-1 MAX seems to be more active in tournament style events than virtually any other Thailand boxer there is. Buakaw Por Pramuk showed signs of his old form by netting a championship in this year’s Shootsboxing S-Cup held in Japan.
In 2010 Isuzu held a 16-man tournament entitled Thai Fight culminating in Fabio Pinca of France emerging as the final tournament winner.
For 2011 Thai Fight is making moves to make the 2nd edition of the tournament even bigger in scale and while at the moment it is unclear what roles Buakaw will have in Thai Fight’s 2011 event it seems at a minimum he will be participating in a super fight and possible in the tournament himself. But as one can see from the above artwork Buakaw is already being featured in promotional materials for That Fight 2011.
As some of you may already know by now Sudsakorn , Khem , Saiyok and Nopparat plus 4 fighters from Thailand Have already competed in elimination fights in Omnoi stadium to determine who will be the Thai representative at 67kg for this event.
The winner will receive a prize of 1 million baht but will also be the national representative in 67 kgs and will face the other 15 fighters from every continent in the next tournament in 2011.
