Buakaw is coming on October 26th to strike back!!

I want to make my next match exciting.

―― You defeated one of the stronger fighters, Nieky "The Natural" Holtzken on points.
Buakaw Maybe the audience didn't really enjoy the match because I only thought of winning. I didn’t think about entertaining them. But I am satisfied. I really wanted to win and move on to the final.
―― What was your game plan?
Buakaw I dodged his attack so that it wouldn't get in, and also used the teep a lot so that he couldn’t effectively attack.
―― It's going to be your third match again Souwer in the semi-final.
Buakaw I've fought against him two times before, and lots of fan like to watch us. I want to make it a more exciting bout.
―― He's going to be a tough one, as he's one of the favorites.
Buakaw Everyone has a different ability. There's no, he is easy to beat or easy to fight at this level.
―― You and he are going to knock each other down.
Buakaw Past champions have the possibility to lose. And at the same time inexperienced fighters that have the possibility to win, are in the other match.

I'm going to the final!

―― I think both of you know how to fight against each other. Isn't it rather difficult to fight?
Buakaw I've fought against Souwer two times before, and we are well acquainted. Both of us know each other well, so we don't have to make a special plan. We will probably fight hard from the beginning, so it's going to be an aggressive match.
―― Are you planning to change your fight style?
Buakaw Maybe it’ll be the same, maybe not. I can say one thing, and that is that we'll exchange various techniques.
―― Are you confident to win?
Buakaw Of course. I'm going to the final.
―― Do you disagree that people say you're getting weaker.
Buakaw Among my very many matches, I was sometimes fighting well, and sometimes poorly. That's why they think I'm losing power. But this time I want to keep my pace and not let him inside like my last match.

It wouldn’t be bad to fight against Masato for his final match.

―― Who do you think you're going to fight in the final?
Buakaw Lots of people say that Petrosyan is the better fighter, which I don't know, and you never know what's going to happen in a K-1 match. Yamamoto has a strong fighting spirit, so this might push him up. I don't know who I'm going to fight at this point.
―― Are you assuming that you're in the final, and practicing for it?
Buakaw I have to defeat Souwer first, but of course I'm thinking about the final.
―― You have a little while before the match. How are you going to spend this time?
Buakaw I'll study my opponent well and do my best to get myself in the absolute best condition.
―― If you become the champion, you have a chance to fight against Masato on New Year's Eve. But Masato is hoping to fight against Souwer.
Buakaw I first have to become the champion. I can't say anything now because it's not easy to become the champion with these 4 fighters.
―― Do you wish to fight against Masato again?
Buakaw If I become the champion, then it's going to happen. (smiles)
―― You have one victory and one defeat against Masato.
Buakaw Of course you win and lose, whoever it is. You can't really say one is stronger than the other only with this record. But it wouldn’t be bad to fight against Masato for his final match.

Like it when Buakaw says "We will probably fight hard from the beginning, so it's going to be an aggressive match...this time I want to keep my pace and not let him inside like my last match."

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
