Buakaw was originally with a camp in Thailand called Por. Pramuk. He had a fallout with said camp due to mistreatment (horrible condition, plus taking
most of his fight money, left him with $200 from $30,000), and went on to create his own camp called banchamek. Following the situation regarding his
dissapearance, and his recent public appearance, his former camp has tried to convince him to return. He wants no part with Por. Pramuk, and as such,
has refused all orders to return (He is still under a contract). The Thai sports authority told Buakaw that he was not allowed to fight on the even
the other night unless he registred his gym (which he didn;t do either).
Fast forwarding to this point in time, Buakaw fought on the event, Thai Fight, defying his contract rules, and the guidlines set up by the Thai Sports
Authority, thus effectively breaking the law. Due to this he is now the victim of legal action which includes charges of breach of contract and is
being sued by Por. Pramuk. What a sad way for one of the best fighters in the world to go down. Hopefully he pulls through it.
Buakaw made a speech in this fight in which he is reciveing law suits for, stating:
” I didn’t think I was going to fight tonight… I’ve got a lot of problems… I’ve been planning to fight on this event since the beginning
of the year… I’ve been training to fight on this event. I’m fighting because I’m a champion, I’m fighting for the King, I’m not just
fighting for myself, I’m fighting for Thailand, I’m fighting for the people of Surin, I’m fighting for my father, and my mother who’s passed
I don’t have any regrets, I’m so happy that I’ve followed through on my plans even if it means that tomorrow I’ll be arrested.”
