Consider this some of the most exciting news that we all saw from a mile away to happen in quite a while. After the recent movement in Buakaw's legal status and camp and MAX posting about the "best is back" on their Facebook page it was very clear what was going down. It is now, apparently, official according to their Facebook page.
On August 10th MAX Muay Thai will originate from Zhengzhou, China and feature a four-man tournament. The four men in the 68kg tournament are Liam Harrison, Sagetdao Petchphayathai, Zhang De Zeng and Martin Ahktar. Those four make for a pretty interesting tournament, although you could argue that Segetdao and Harrison are the clear favorites to meet in the Finals, but that's OK with us.
They also have confirmed that Buakaw Banchamek will be making his official return to the ring, meaning actually fighting and not involved in an exhibition, at this event. His opponent has yet to be named and on a month's notice I do not suspect that it will be a huge fight like everyone wants, but be patient.
