The artist formerly known as Buakaw Por Pramuk, now known as Buakaw Banchamek but is really Sombat Banchamek has been cleared for his upcoming fight on April 17th at Thai Fight in Pattaya, Thailand. At a press conference yesterday in Thailand confirmed that he would indeed participate in Thai Fight in Pattaya, that he would be doing so as Buakaw Banchamek. There was also talk of him possibly fighting under his real name of Sombat Banchamek in the future, but for now he will keep the name "Buakaw" to help promote his upcoming fight.
Buakaw confirmed that he will be staying in Surin, Thailand with his family and that he is content for the time being. For a fighter of his international profile and talent, this is important and one of the best case scenario endings for this whole ordeal. [source]
