Buakaw is back!

This is an interview he made wit a Thai press



This is a translation of interview. I'm glad he is ok

Interviewer: can you explain where you've been for the past 10 days?

Buakaw: I'd like to apologize to my fans, and thanks to the people who've been looking after me. I had a personal issue with the camp that has been weighing on me... it's been an issue since 2009.

It was something that has been bothering me for quite sometime... I've never had issues with my training, I've never skipped training, and I've always been diligent... I was constantly criticized and put down, they said I was disrespectful... I just couldn't take it anymore.

Interviewer: What would they say to you?

Buakaw: (so it's going to get lost in translation but it's basically a very direct and rude way of speaking to someone) " I'm really getting tired of you" , " You're a real pain"etc. (The translation isn't that bad, but the way it's being said is fairly harsh)

but I've always worked hard, and been respectful, I've never had issues with my training nothing for them to complain about. I didn't deserve it.

Interviewer: So where were you?

Buakaw: I was in a special place (my place) where nobody could find me. So I left with my trainer.... no body saw me, I never the left the house. I don't want to say where though.

Interviewer: So you've been injured...

Buakaw: Yes, I've had some issues. I had a fitness trainer who looked after my health, who left as well...

It's been building up for years... I was really considering hanging up my gloves in 2009, I was tired, injured and quite stressed.

I don't want to retire, I haven't thought that far ahead, I just want to rest, I want to look after my health, retirement, that's for another day. For know I just want to rest and get well.

Yes I've spoken with the camp; we've been in touch... We are trying to find a way to work things out, but we still haven't found a way.

Interviewer: Do you still want to be Buakaw Por. Pramuk?

Buakaw: Yes I do, I want to fullfill my responsibilities, but I want to be happy, I want to be free from the stress and tension of the camp

Interviewer: You say you want freedom, does that mean you don't wanto be at the camp anymore?

Buakaw: Well, if you ask me if I want to go back? I'd have to say no, I don't want to go back, I just want to rest, and look after my health.

Why did'nt he change Camp before??, when somebody gives you only 20.000 when you made a milion hahaha. what a bullshit, everybody would be gone by a moove like that. he is free to go everywhere, so why would he have stayed so long?? sounds a little weird ??

The best K-1 community online!

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.
