Man Pays To Fight Buakaw

Man pays to fight Buakaw

What do you do if you have a lot of money to blow? Naturally, you pay to step into the ring with one of the most dangerous men in the world.

That is exactly what this wealthy Chinese man did. He didn’t go on some crazy vacation, buy some really expensive sports car or buy a mega mansion. Well, he might have done that stuff, we don’t know. What we do know is that he paid Buakaw Banchamek to step into the ring and fight him. Yes, you read that right, he pretty much paid a trained assassin to fight him.

I can only imagine the money he paid Buakaw to do this because Buakaw doesn’t fight for peanuts. I would assume Buakaw had to be convinced that this was not a joke when he was first told about the offer.

I must admit if I had disposable income like this guy I would be tempted to do the same, actually I would probably just settle for putting on the best Muay Thai card ever and pay Buakaw to fight Yodsanklai. That sounds like a much better plan than getting beat up by Buakaw. I mean most people would settle for some one on one training with Buakaw, but not this guy. He had to take it one step further, but I bet he will never forget this experience.

Buakaw shows no mercy.

Now the crazy part is that most people would do some type of training to get ready. You know you are not going to win, but at least try to look respectable in the ring.

Apparently, this man couldn’t care less, he looks like he has never set foot inside a gym.

Buakaw is clearly not trying to kill this guy when he is throwing his strikes. I wonder how nervous he was about actually landing a solid shot on him and hurting him? Eventually, Buakaw scored a knockout and the way this guy goes down is pretty funny.

Check out the video below and let us know if you would pay to step into the ring and fight Buakaw.

It probably looked as you had envisioned the one-sided beatdown. Props tot he guy, he went in there and fought to the very end. He should be proud, and I personally would love to see this guy maybe step in the ring with someone of his similar skill set. He has heart and in the end, that is all that matters.


  1. I can beat both fighters and for all intent and purpose have not trained since 1994. I have 150 gym fights with 135 brutal knock outs. WILL BUAKAW FIGHT WHEN ITS A REAL TEST ? ? ! I CALL OUT TO YOU BUAKAW FIGHT ME IF YOU DARE..

    • Surely you are joking, never heard your name in the media yet. You should turn pro with the record that you established in your mind.

  2. You disrespect Thailand if you don’t fight me in a boxing match with bare fists. You are rude and disrespectful to the poor fighters and you are scared of the real fighters. FIGHT COWARD OF THAILAND AND SIAM.. BUAKOW VS DEAN KO KILLER TSIROS.. NOW..


  4. This is what a Chinese fan who was translating for them said about this:

    Buakaw was invited to this private event for a real MT fight with a professional Chinese fighter among other promotional activities. When he arrived there, the professional fighter “had a schedule conflict” and found this multimillionaire guy stepping in the ring instead as substitute.
    He is famous there to pay his idols to literally ko him in front of his employees.
    They explained the situation to Buakaw and his team and decided to do this “fight” anyway as a demo.
    Buakaw was only paid half because he refused,rightfully so, to engage in a real fight and ko this idiot and left the guests kinda disappointed because it was a tradition to end it with a ko.
    His manager was beyond pissed about the whole thing,but kinda amused at the same time.

    • Not true. I am the manager that brought Bukaw. And it was always this plan to fight the promoter of the event. We went to Thailand, met with him, and he agreed to this fight. It was agreed that he would not kill the promoter. As the title says. Rich guy wanted to fight Bukaw. Simple.

      Im also the referee. This was about 4 years ago.

      • I believe my source; a long time friend of Banchamek team and one of the first team of fans in China to introduce his name and promote him;had never lied or reported an untrue fact in all these years they’ve been actively involved.
        Made these claims public and were there too,just like they were there for all the times Buakaw fights in China.
        Also the pictures they posted correspond the the description they made,pissed off faces and general confusion.

  5. This guy never prepared enough for this fight.

    But BUAKAW will destroy anything on his path better prepared on not, he is very dangerous as he hits vital areas with intence power. Dagerous man in the ring indeed.

  6. The guy’s technique isn’t quite there but he doesn’t flinch as much as a lot of other newer fighters. But I guess that’s what a lot of F U money and a contract stipulating that Buakaw can’t knock you out affords you.
