Buakaw Banchamek will return to action at Kunlun Fight 62 in Thailand.
The event will take place on June 10, 2017 in Bangkok and will feature a stacked card, with Buakaw in the main event. He will be fighting against China’s Kong Linfeng. The internet has been going crazy as of late with the possibility of Buakaw vs. Yodsanklai actually happening. For now if that fight does happen, it won’t be until 2018.
Buakaw will be looking to win this third straight fight when he takes on Linfeng. He lost a controversial decision to Yi Long in November of 2016, which snapped a five fight win streak. Since the controversial loss he has beat Andrei Kulebin at Phoenix Fighting Championship and Tian Xing at Kunlun Fight 56. The fight against Lingfeng will be a re-match from Kunlun Fight 39, a bout with Buakaw won by decision.
Group 10 and Group 11 of Kunlun Fight’s 70 kg world championship tournament qualifiers will take place. In Group 10 the semi-finals will feature Victor Nagbe vs. Armen Israelyan and Tian Xin vs. Sergei Kuliaba. The Group 11 semi-finals will feature Yohann Drai vs. Yiliyasi
and Xuesong vs. Martin Gano.
Some big super fights are also lined up for the event. They include Superbon Banchamek vs. Artem Pashporin, Artur Kyshenko vs. Gabriele Casella, and Singdam Kiatmuu9 vs. Gu Hui. Superbon is fresh off winning gold at the IFMA’s, while Kyshenko continues to impress in the Kunlun Fight ring where he is undefeated.
