Well its 8:30Am for me and I had to set my alarm to wake up and watch this tournament from France so why not give everyone the results. I'm sure everyone is curious to see Buakaw back in action against a strong opponent in Steve Moxon. Plus other great fighters like Reece McAllister, Niclas Larsen, Marat Grigorian, and Abraham Roqueni.

Buakaw's Time to Reclaim the 70kg Throne in Kickboxing

  • Published in News

Buakaw

The past few years have been turbulent times in the life of Sombat Banchamek, best known as Buakaw Banchamek, formerly known as Buakaw Por. Pramuk. The legendary fighter from Thailand is perhaps best known for his tenure within K-1, where he took home two K-1 World MAX Championships, cementing his legacy as one of the best 70kg fighters in the world. For fans of Banchamek, the last few years have been trying ones, as Banchamek found himself with tremendous personal and professional struggles that kept him out of the ring, or if he was in the ring, facing sub-par competition to keep the legend of Buakaw alive and well.

The first struggle was with his home camp, Por. Pramuk gym, where Buakaw felt that he was being treated unfairly and chose to leave. Well, things aren’t that simple in Thailand, with the bond between a gym and fighter being akin to that of an ironclad contract. Buakaw made impassioned pleas to the public about his poor treatment and how he, one of the biggest stars to come out of Thailand’s Muay Thai scene, was still living a life of moderate poverty and unable to visit his family at will.

Buakaw Banchamek vs Djime Coulibaly 2 Monte Carlo Results

  • Published in Muay Thai

Here is the fifth round of Buakaw vs Coulibaly 2, which happened on June 14 in Monaco on the Monte-Carlo Fighting Masters Show. These two fought before in 2011 on a Thai Fight Extreme card and Buakaw won a 3 round decision in a decently competitive fight. Once again we see the new and improved Buakaw Banchamek absolutely dismantling Coulibaly and toying with him in this fifth round. It would be nice to see Buakaw fight some real top level guys this year considering he has looked unstoppable. One more fight with Andy Souwer maybe?

Alex Tobiasson Harris Defeated Yohan Lidon by 5 round decision to retain his WMC World Super Middleweight Title on the same show.

UPDATE: Full results from the event.

Buakaw Banchamek (R5 - Dec.) Djime Coulibaly

Buakaw's Legal Problems with Por Pramuk Continue

  • Published in Muay Thai

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.

Buakaw Issues Apology Over Dog Abuse Video

  • Published in Muay Thai

Yesterday there was some troubling news about one of the most beloved stars in kickboxing and muay thai when a video surfaced, originally posted on his Instagram account, that showed him "playing" with a dog. The video depicted Banchamek on top of the dog, taking its paw and slapping it in the face before using more force, with the dog increasingly crying out in what was a bit of a disturbing video. Buakaw and his team have today issued a statement in regards to the video.

To anyone who watched this video, I want to apologize if you were offended in anyway. The dog you saw in this video is name Milo. When he and his brothers were little, people tried to poison them to get rid of them. We at. the gym adopted Milo and his brother cafe, and gave them a home and love. I was playing with the dog and it was misinterpreted, I did not mean to hurt the dog. The video was deleted and someone hacked the video. We ask. you to please not share or comment any bad opinions of this misunderstanding. Know that Milo has a great family with us and is well taken care of! Sorry again. Buakaw Banchamek the fans and the people involved.

Definitely more along the lines of what we expect from Buakaw. Hopefully there was some sort of lesson learned here as well.

LiverKick Throwback: Buakaw vs. Masato K-1 World MAX Finals 2004

  • Published in K-1

The world of kickboxing has a rich history to fall back upon so we here at LiverKick figure, why not? Why not give a glimpse into some of the fights from the past that have made up this wonderful sport and tie it all in to the present. The kids on the Instagram and Twitter like to call Thursdays "Throwback Thursdays," I'm just going to say that this is a LiverKick Throwback.

Let's travel back in time now, all the way back to 2004. Yes, 2004, almost exactly ten years ago to the day, on July 7th, 2004. The K-1 World MAX Finals were the hottest ticket in town since Masato's win in the first ever tournament back in 2002 and Buakaw Banchamek (formerly Por. Pramuk) vs. Masato was the fight that everyone was clawing to see. They were the best of the best; Masato representing the Japanese bushido spirit and Buakaw the best that Thailand had to offer (regardless of your opinion, he was the best in kickboxing at the time). 

This fight was everything that K-1 was meant to embody; Japan vs. Thailand, the foreigner vs. the hometown hero and it delivered in spades. We can look back upon this fight and marvel at the display, the heart and fortitude shown and how K-1 saw Buakaw as a threat to their Japanese-centric MAX brand. This fight was the poor kid from Thailand against the groomed mega-star of Japan and it is beautiful.

K-1 World MAX Finals Live Results

  • Published in Asia

The K-1 World MAX Finals are live now, with K-1 airing four of the fights live right now. You can watch it right here on LiverKick. I am with headache, so be gentle. We'll be keeping you updated both here and on Twitter so stay tuned.

K-1 World MAX Final: Enriko Kehl (R4 - Forfeit) Buakaw Banchamek - This fight was close. Kehl was landing the clean shots while Buakaw was using his clinch to throw Kehl around. While that is all well and good, that doesn't score you points in K-1 rules. Buakaw should know that. When it was announced as a draw going into an extra round Buakaw literally walked out. Not kidding, he walked out. Probably some of the least professional behavior that we've seen in a long time, especially on this level. Enriko Kehl wins via forfeit. Wow.

Paul “Semtex” Daley (R3 - Dec.) Mohammad Ghaedibardeh - Ghaedibardeh is a tough, tough guy who took a ton of damage. His reach was pretty crazy and he was using his kicks to keep Daley pushed back. If you could give Ghaedibardeh round one, rounds two and three were all Daley, with Daley dropping him twice in R2 and once in R3. I mean, there was no question that Daley won, but you gotta give Ghaedibardeh credit for staying in the fight.

Maximo Suarez (R2 - TKO) Tural Bayramov - This fight started off strong with both guys looking for the knockout early on. Suarez dropped Tural early on in R1 and it looked like Tural injured his arm at some point. Tural came back for R2 but was unable to continue, giving Maximo the victory.

Andre “Dida” Amade (R3 - Dec.) Li Yankun - This served as Andre Dida's return to professional competition after a few years away from the ring. Needless to say he looked good, but there was some ring rust. Yankun is an up-and-coming Chinese fighter who showed a few flashes of brilliance, but ultimately fell short to Dida.

K-1 Postpones World MAX Show in Thailand

  • Published in K-1

If the only news that you pay attention to is fighting sports you might not have known that there is currently a bit of political upheaval in Thailand right now. In fact, there was a military coup that went down just days ago, leaving some areas of Thailand under strict military presence. Not all, though, some areas are untouched. Pattaya, where K-1 is planning their K-1 World MAX Finals event, happens to be one of the places under strict curfew. 

K-1 has been monitoring the situation and along with their partners in Thailand have decided to postpone the event for the time being. It might not be until July, but two months for a nation to get itself in order after a government is overthrown is a bit quick and they will wait out the situation before booking another event there. Kind of a bummer, we know, but it seems like the right call for this one.

Buakaw 'Allowed' to Fight Again -- Will Fight for MAX Muay Thai

  • Published in Muay Thai

Buakaw

Whenever the name Buakaw comes up people want to know if and when he'll sign with GLORY, when the reality is that his life is far more complicated than just signing a new contract now, and has been for a while. Buakaw Banchamek, formerly Buakaw Por. Pramuk, has had his life become very public over the last year or so, with his struggles against former camp Por. Pramuk and then with former promoter in Thai Fight. Now he is fighting for MAX Muay Thai, although he hasn't been able to "fight" due to a court case against Thai Fight.

Buakaw has instead been fighting demo fights, which means just exhibitions that don't count as legitimate fights towards his record, but still have him involved in the show to put butts in the seats. In a way it is kind of brilliant, if not kind of obnoxious.

Well, according to this photo from MAX Muay Thai's Facebook page, Buakaw can now fight for them, possibly on the August event in China.
