Kunlun Fight returns yet again this weekend with one of the kickboxing world's most familiar faces in Buakaw Banchamek at Kunlun Fight 39. This card, like most Kunlun cards, promises a lot of quality kickboxing and some spectacle thrown in as well for good measure. Their Clash of Titans tournament continues with some solid bouts across two blocks, with Artem Pashporin against Victor Nagbe in the C-block looking like one of the bigger fights of the evening.
Albert Kraus is in action against Liu Mingzhi in a bout where the young Mingzhi will have a chance against a true legend of the sport, but Kraus has shown himself to be durable, even if he's been active for quite some time now and is showing some signs of aging. The big bout, of course, is Buakaw Banchamek against Kong Linfeng. This bout will, most likely, see Banchamek walk away victorious, but as we've seen prior, Kunlun isn't exactly pulling punches when it comes to Buakaw and simply handing him fights that he can breeze through anymore.
Kunlun Fight 39 will air on Jiangsu TV as usual.
