Buakaw's Legal Problems with Por Pramuk Continue

BUakaw

There were a lot of question marks going into this week's Thai Fight event featuring Buakaw Banchamek and if he'd be allowed to fight. Buakaw not only fought, but he brutalized his opponent with a massive second round stoppage before giving an emotional appeal to the crowd. An interesting note from the show was that he was still being called "Buakaw Por. Pramuk," especially with Buakaw taking a lot of time to distance himself from the Por Pramuk camp, where all of the problems are coming from. There were a lot of reports coming from Thailand that Buakaw might be barred from competing, but fought he did. It turns out that Buakaw stepping into the ring might have opened himself and possibly Thai Fight up for some problems in the future.

The Bangkok Post is reporting that Pramuk Rojanatan and his son were preparing documents for a possible lawsuit and that there will be a press conference soon to discuss the issues. The Sports Authority of Thailand is threatening to suspend Buakaw as well as the Thai Fight organization for up to six months for violating the rules of the Boxing Act by not receiving clearance from Buakaw's camp of record.

No action will be taken until Por Pramuk files a grievance against Buakaw and Thai Fight.

Want to Know Who Longern Superpro Samui Is? We Have You Covered

Since the announcement sent out by K-1 with their line-up so far for the K-1 World MAX Final 16 tournament, there has been some confusion as to who Longern Superpro Samui is and why he is included in the K-1 World MAX tournament. Well, Longern has not always been known as Longern. Before he was at Superpro Samui, he was known as Loh-ngern Pitakkruchaiden. If that name sounds familiar, it could be because he was set to face Kevin Ross for Lion Fights last year before having to pull out due to injury.

We've confirmed his identity with the Superpro Samui gym and have gone digging, so here are a few fights from Longern.

Buakaw

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]

Buakaw To File Grievance with Por Pramuk, Possibly Off Thai Fight Card

Buakaw

The artist formerly known as Buakaw Por. Pramuk has had a tough time of late, finding himself finally unable to cope with the purported abuse he was facing from his management and training team, he took off. There was speculation as to what had happened to him, if he was in danger or if he was ducking an upcoming fight. He finally broke his silence, detailing the abuses that he faced at his gym, how little he was paid or appreciated and the world saw one of Thailand's national heroes in a new light. With the help of his sponsor, Yokkao, a new gym was being built for him to train at, at least temporarily, and he had his first fight booked under his new name for April 17th in Thai Fight.

Sadly for Buakaw Banchamek, he has some legal hurdles to jump over before he can go ahead with that fight.

The Sports Authority of Thailand has gone on record with the Bangkok Post that Buakaw will need to register his new camp with the SAT before he can fight under the banner. He will also need to file a complaint against Por Pramuk, which will then be investigated by the SAT. [source]
