Thai Fight's First 2012 Event: Buakaw Returns

In 2011, Thai Fight got their name out in a big way, using wold renowned Muay Thai fighters like Kem Sitsongpeenong, Buakaw Por. Pramuk, Yodsaenklai Fairtex and many more. They ended 2011 with the finals of two tournaments, one at 67kg and one at 70kg, and generated a lot of buzz. 

Thai Fight is coming back on April 7, this time from Pattaya, Thailand at Bali Hai Cape. As usual, they've brought out the Thai stars for this card. Buakaw, yes Buakaw, Kem Sitsongpeenong and Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee all grace the card. What's interesting is that Buakaw is going under the alias of "Buakaw Banchamek Gym," according to k1rules.com who put the fight card out. Banchamek Gym would be the name of the gym that him and Yokkao just built in his home of Surin.

Buakaw's opponent is from France, Mickael Cornubet. I don't know much about him other than that he was KO'd by Mickael Piscitello in 2011 so this shouldn't be a very tough fight for Buakaw.

Saiyok Pumphanmuang will take a fight before his big SLAMM!! fight against Mohammed Khamal. He fights Rustem Zaripov of Russia. Kem Sitsongpeenong, the winner of Thai Fight's 67kg tournament last year, faces Tarek (That's the only name given.). Sudsakorn fights Superbon Lookjaomawaree, who is ranked #3 at Lumpinee Stadium in the 140lb division.

Don't be surprised at all if the card changes and half of these fights end up not going through. This may be the planned card but a lot of things might get in the way.

74kg: Bernueng Topking Boxing (Thailand) vs Youssef Boughanem (Belgium)

70kg: Saiyok Pumpanmuang (Thailand) VS Rustem Zaripov (Russia)

70kg: Khem Sitsongpeenong (Thailand) VS Tarek (Morocco)

67kg: Sudsakorn Sor. Klinmee (Thailand) VS Superbon Lukjaomawaree (Thailand)

70kg: Buakaw Banchamek Gym (Thailand) VS Mickael Cornubet (France)

68kg: Roongroj Phechrungrueang (Thailand) VS TBA

Buakaw Is "Back" With Yokkao Behind Him

buakaw

As a lot of you probably know, Buakaw recently had a very difficult situation. He went off without telling anyone and wasn't heard of for a week. Finally, he resurfaced and told the media that he was just tired, stressed and needed some rest, along with issues at the Por Pramuk Gym like money and living conditions.  There was a lot of speculation as to what Buakaw would do, like leaving Por Pramuk Gym.

For the time being, at least, Buakaw is having a new gym built where he will start training at tomorrow. Yokkao Boxing, his sponsor, is helping with the building of the gym. As of now, Yokkao is just calling the gym temporary.

If you also noticed in this article, I haven't been calling Buakaw by the name he had used for so long, "Buakaw Por. Pramuk." It seems for the time being he isn't going by the Por. Pramuk name anymore. Yokkao referred to him as Buakaw Banchamek. Banchamek is his real last name.

A lot of props should be given to Yokkao for helping Buakaw to get back on track after such a difficult situation.

Sam A Gaiyanghadaogym Fighting Penek Sitnumnoi in Big Lumpini Card on April 3rd

Sam-A is rapidly running out of suitable opponents in Thailand as his winning streak shows no sign of coming to an end. On April 3rd he will be headlining a huge card at Lumpini when he takes on Penek Sitnumnoi.

The last time they fought Sam-A won by knock out but he is moving up in weight and will be at a size disadvantage for this fight which has been set at 125 lbs. Penek is coming off a win over Wanchalerm while Sam-A outpointed Petpanomrung in his last outing in a fight which was closer than expected, although he did have to get down to 119 lbs.

Saketdai and Singdam are fighting again, these two seem to fight each other pretty regularly and they are always competitive contests while Wanchalerm takes on Petboonchu who is coming off a win over Jomthong at Rajadamnern in a fight which was reportedly not particularly entertaining.

Detkart is one of the rising starts of Muay Thai and recently beat Thelek and broke his nose with an elbow in the process. He will be taking on Wanchai in a match up which has all the ingredients for a figth of the night. Unless of course the rumoured rematch between Tingtong and Ponsaneh goes ahead on this date, Ponsanah is pretty much unrivalled when it comes to entertainment value.
