Buakaw and Thai Fight Being Sued for 100 Million Baht by Por Pramuk Camp

  • Published in Muay Thai

BuakawIt seemed inevitable that sooner or later the trigger would be pulled on the impending lawsuit between Por Pramuk, former Por Pramuk fighter, Buakaw, and the Thai Fight organization. Thai Fight ends up completely stuck in the middle between the two parties after they allowed Buakaw to fight on the April 17th event without consent from Buakaw's former management camp and doing so without paying them. There was talk of government involvement, including an ultimatum, but apparently the Por Pramuk camp has decided to move forward with a lawsuit.

The Bangkok Post has a story up detailing the suit, which has Por Pramuk suing for 100 million baht, or approximately $3.24 million USD. Por Pramuk's lawyer is motioning for Buakaw to settle this matter outside of court. The SAT is asking Buakaw and Por Pramuk to attend a meeting on May 10th to attempt to settle this as well, but if nothing is settled shortly a preliminary hearing is set for July 16th.

It seems like it will be quite a while before we get to see Buakaw fight again, sadly.

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]
