Buakaw Por. Pramuk to fight Hiroki Nakajima on new year's eve -- In Sengoku

Taken from headkicklegend
written by Dave Walsh

In not-so-shocking news, we have a big fight announcement for the upcoming New Year's Eve shows in Japan, and it involves Buakaw Por. Pramuk taking on the K-1 MAX Japan runner-up Hiroki Nakajima in a 70kgs battle. What is shocking? That the fight will not take place under any FEG banner, be it K-1, DREAM or Dynamite!!, instead he will be fighting in the Sengoku card in a kickboxing bout.

Buakaw has been on rocky terms with FEG and was not invited back to participate in the K-1 World MAX tournament this year. That, of course, was K-1's official reply to Buakaw not being involved, as Buakaw and his camp have made it clear that they were incredibly displeased with FEG over the past few years. Buakaw was a dominant MAX fighter that the company treated like a burden as opposed to their champion, which drove one of the world's best fighters away from K-1 MAX and in the process damaged their credibility.

Now we look to New Year's Eve, where Dynamite!! can no longer expect support from TBS and the fledgling Sengoku that FEG reached out to, like a condescending big brother, to help out, is looking healthier and stronger than FEG going into the home stretch. Adding Buakaw vs. Nakajima gives Sengoku's kickboxing portion of their giant martial arts festival an air of legitimacy. We have reached an age where K-1 MAX fighters opt to fight for the competition, for a promise of less money, knowing that they will be paid the money owed to them and be in a better atmosphere.

I'm glad Buakaw is still fighting and competing beside k-1 and is doing well so. it's a shame we won't see Petrosyan, Masato, Souwer and Buakaw on one night fighting each other....

Well, they cant fight forever, but Sower and Buakaw are still at their prime. I guess the main reason we havent seen them in this years MAX is the money they fight for. FEG just doesnt have that much of it anymore

@stark I do agree that they can't fight forever, but as you mentioned, beside masato, they are all still successfully fighting on a high level. And I guess Masato could make a comeback.

Would be nice to see them compete in one tournament, would be high tv ratings I guess.

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.
