K-1 and Buakaw (pramuk) Banchamek Secure Long Term Deal :) :)

Home / Events / K-1 and Buakaw Banchamek Secure Long Term Deal K-1 and Buakaw Banchamek Secure Long Term Deal By admin BANGKOK, August 6th, 2013 — K-1 Global is very proud to announce that the baukaw singt a exclusive contract

Buakaw Banchamek — who fans may remember better as Buakaw Por. Pramuk — has had a deal of obstacles to overcome over the last few years, but it has only made him stronger and hungry to compete against the best in the world again.

Buakaw Banchamek first appeared under the K-1 banner back in 2004 when he took the world by storm by entering into his first World MAX tournament. Banchamek’s first foray into a Kickboxing tournament saw him face a who’s who of Kickboxers, as he defeated John Wayne Parr, Takayuki Kohiruimaki and then defeated Masato in the Finals. His win at the 2004 K-1 World MAX tournament helped to make him one of the most famous Thai fighters of all time, which only improved with his next few appearances for the promotion. Buakaw faced a tough loss to Andy Souwer in the 2005 K-1 World MAX Finals, but the two met again in the finals in 2006 where Buakaw once again captured the crown.


On September 14th in Mallorca, Spain, Buakaw will make his first appearance in a K-1 ring since 2009 as he will enter the K-1 World MAX Final 16. A win at the Final 16 will assure him a spot in the upcoming Final 8, which will be announced at a later date. Fans across the world have been waiting for Buakaw to once again fight under K-1 rules and K-1 Global is very proud to be able to bring Buakaw Banchamek back home.

Questionable by Buakaw and bad for kickboxing. Splitting the small pool of top level kickboxers is a bad thing. The world of kickboxing need one large organisation to succeed then others can follow.
Fighting over a tiny piece of a small pie will only lead to more promoters going under.

Good to see Buakaw back in the ring.
But it would have been better if he had signed with Glory ... The best fighters are with Glory, not with K-1... anymore.

@D-rop True, but Glory never considered inviting him, all these years and events, so at least we will see him in action again.

@Mitko J. on the other hand Glory could not invite him ..

Did you guys see his documantary boxer fighter legacy in it you will see that baukaw was forbidden to fight for 2 years for a OTHEr organistation ,..

He was stuck in thai extreme went into A big justice battle with his old promoters
at the end the judges decided that he was not allowed to fight under a different banner that thai extreme ..

So glory could not offer him a contract in that time period ... he just recently got released from his messed up contract

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.
