Your Daily Buakaw Update: Facing Dong Wenfei at MAX 3 Featured

BuakawIt's kind of funny how a fighter like Buakaw can not be in the news for months and months and then he'll be practically unavoidable. For right now Buakaw's relationship with MAX Muay Thai seems to be benefiting him as they are keeping his name out there, now that he can actually fight for them and not just participate in exhibition bouts. This is probably a pretty good thing, right? Especially at this stage in Buakaw's career.

Buakaw Has an Opponent at MAX Muay Thai 3

Yes, we knew that Buakaw would be fighting at MAX Muay Thai 3 in China on August 10th, but we weren't sure who it would be against. Now, thanks to a Facebook update from MAX, we know that he'll be fighting against Chinese fighter Dong Wenfei. Wenfei is a Sanda fighter who mainly fights in Kickboxing rules, but Buakaw is not a stranger to those rules, either. One of Weifei's biggest fights was a loss against Vuyisile Colossa, who is probably best known for fighting for ONE FC now. He's also fought Albert Kraus, Big Ben, Aikipracha and more, although he hasn't beaten any of those bigger names.

This will be a good tune-up fight for Buakaw, at least. MAX also announced some other fights for the card, including Aikpracha vs. Jordan Watson and Khem vs. Maiki Karatanasis.

New Buakaw Documentary

Because you can't get enough Buakaw, there is a new documentary that has been released on him that has been out for about a month now called Boxer, Legend, Legacy. It can be rented on Vimeo for $7.
