The Buakaw Por. Pramuk vs. Fabio Pinca fight scheduled for March 17 in Tours, France under the La Nuit Des Titans banner has been cancelled.
Buakaw was injured and there also seemed to be a dispute between the leaders of the Por. Pramuk camp and Buakaw about the dismissal of his physical trainer. The French promoters tried to get a hold of Buakaw to no avail. He has not been seen or heard from since March 1. No one knows where Buakaw is or what his current status is with the Por. Pramuk camp after this debacle. Some have questioned if Buakaw just pulled out of the fight because of the -68kg weight limit.
Replacing Buakaw is arguably an even tougher opponent for Pinca, Aekpracha Meenayothin. Aekpracha is ranked #3 at Lumpine and #2 at Rajadamnern at welterweight. His last fight saw him score an impressive first round KO of Prakaysiang Kaiyanghadaogym.
