Buakaw Returns On Friday In England At Thai Fight

After a series of legal battles and question marks surrounding his career, Buakaw is returning to the ring on Friday.

Thai Fight will be holding an event this Friday, August 17 in Leicester, England and atop the card is Buakaw. He'll be facing Abdoul Toure from France. He was originally supposed to fight Craig Jose, but as per usual with Thai Fight cards, things get shuffled around.

Buakaw's last fight was on April 17 in Thailand, where he stopped Rustem Zaripov in the second round at Thai Fight. Buakaw at the time was not even allowed to fight but the fight went through anyway and Buakaw seemingly fought with a flare of motivation that we hadn't seen from him in quite some time. Toure is better than Zaripov but let's face it, this is pretty much another guaranteed win for Buakaw.

It's quite surprising that outside of the UK Muay Thai community that there really isn't any buzz for this event at all, unlike past Thai Fight events. The card features a who's who of international Muay Thai and of course, has Buakaw as the main star. This fight is a pretty big deal, acknowledging the circumstances that Buakaw has been subject to for most of this year and being that he's returning after the whole legal mess that dragged on for months.

Be on the lookout for the full fight card here on LiverKick shortly.

Nong-O vs Singdam to headline next big Lumpini card on July 31st

The next big card at Lumpini is set for July 31st and will feature the latest installment in the Nong-O vs Singdam saga. Singdam won the most recent meeting but is trailing overall by the narrowest of margins with Nong-O now 4-3-1 against him.

Singdam's holds the 135 lbs Lumpini belt while Nong-O holds the 135 lbs title belt courtesy of his most recent win against Petbonchu although judging from the poster only the Lumpini title will be on the line. Singdam's most recent title defence was against Wanchalerm who is also on the card, this time the tall teenager will be going up against the more experienced Petboonchu in what promises to be a clinch war.

The light flyweight division has produced some of the best fights of the year and Wanchai and Sarawut will be going head to head again in a rematch of the highly entertaining affair last month which Sarawut just edged. Wanchai always brings it and this one looks a strong candidate for fight of the night honours.

F16 was supposed to fight Petbonchu last month but the bout was called off at the last minute after the former was poisoned. Although both are on this card they will not be facing each other but will instead be taking on two team mates from the Udonmuang Gym with F16 is going up against another up and comer in Diesellek.

In a super bantamweight clash Rittidej takes on Singdam's Kiatmoo 9 stable mate Petpanomrung while Sittisak (Petchphayathai), who doesn't always have the most entertaining style and hasn't fought on a big show for a while takes on Arunchai. Palungtip's reward for beating Ponsaneh for the third consecutive time last month is a fight against Kwankao.

Rumour has it that French teenager Leo Pinto will not be fighting despite being featured on the poster.
