The Caged Muay Thai concept that John Wayne Parr came up with a few months ago for him to get to compete in a cage with MMA gloves on before he hung up his trunks for good.

This is a video of Pornsane Sitmonchai sparring in the CMT ring wearing MMA gloves.

Don't Expect Buakaw To Fight Somrak Khamsing Or Manny Pacquiao

There's been a lot of weird rumors going on lately about Buakaw fighting Manny Pacquiao and also with Somrak Khamsing calling Buakaw out, speculation of a fight between them was ignited. Obviously, they seemed unlikely to happen in the first place, but now there's really some official confirmation regarding this.

Sport Art Co. Ltd., who also happen to be the organizers of Thai Fight, have all rights regarding the matchmaking of Buakaw until December 31 of this year. Anyone that wants to set up a fight outside of Thai Fight with Buakaw still has to go through Sport Art Co. Ltd. Here's an excerpt explaining the matter:

"In addition, Sport Art Co.'s key policy is for Buakaw to act as an ambassador for muay thai to popularise the sport around the world, as he is well-known internationally. Therefore, Buakaw will fight only against foreign opponents & not Thai opponents. As such, a fight with Somrak Kamsing, the 39-year-old former Olympic gold medalist who recently issued Buakaw a challenge in the news, is impossible. Thai Fight also thinks that it is improper for them to fight, as regardless of whether Buakaw wins or loses, it will be not be good for his image.

As for news reports claiming that Buakaw will fight Manny Pacquiao in a Western-style boxing match on 21 December 2012 in Thailand, Sport Art Co., which has the full power to decide who Buakaw fights until the end of 2012, had never known about this proposed fight before. In any case, Sport Art Co. thinks that the chances of it happening are close to nil. This is because Manny is scheduled to fight with Marquez on 8 December 2012, & Buakaw is required to fight in the final round of Thai Fight 2012 on 16 December 2012. Buakaw will violate the Boxing Act if he takes part in a fight less than 15 days after his previous one." [source]

Buakaw Back At Thai Fight On October 23

We're getting pretty accustomed to seeing Buakaw at Thai Fight these days. He won Thai Fight's 70kg tournament last year and has two wins in the promotion this year. 

Buakaw will be entering this year's Thai Fight 70kg tournament, and it starts on October 23 in Bangkok, Thailand. Once again, he's fighting an opponent that really is nowhere near his caliber in Mauro Serra of Italy. As per usual with Thai Fight, they're a bit of a joke when it comes to pretty basic stuff like letting people know what the fight card is so this fight is obviously subject to change.

What we do know for sure about the card is that it will be the beginning of the Thai Fight 70kg and 67kg tournaments. Singmanee Kaewsamrit will be featuredas the Thai in the 67kg tournament.

Here's a tentative lineup for the 67kg and 70kg tournaments, although when Thai Fight comes around, don't be surprised if there are a lot of changes.

67kg:

Singmanee Kaewsamrit

Adaylton Pareira de Freitas

Andrei Kulebin

Crice Boussoukou

Mehdi Zatout

Shan Cangelosi

Rachid Boumalek

Houcine Bennoui

70kg:

Buakaw Por. Pramuk

Mauro Serra

Shannon King

Antero Hynynen

Woo Yong Choi

Tomoyuki Nishikawa

Warren Stevelmans

Fares Bechar
