Buakaw headlines Premier League Muay Thai at Seni

Mar 20, 2010
(PRESS RELEASE) -- MSA looks to take Muay Thai into the big time with a series of arena shows across the UK. The first of which is next weekend at Manchester Evening News Arena on Saturday 27th March 2010.

On Saturday 29th May 2010 at Seni in ExCeL London, MSA Muay Thai Premier League will then feature, in a fight put together by Dan Green (working with Rob Cox), none other than K1 Max superstar Buakaw Por Pramuk under Full Thai rules!

Buakaw Por Pramuk is undoubtedly the number one K1 Max and Thai superstar! Formerly two time Omnoi Stadium and Thailand national champion, he became a true worldwide superstar when he became the K-1 Max World Champion beating none other than John Wayne Parr, Takayuki Kohiruimaki and previous champion Masato in the finals. In 2005 he was nearly crowned champion again but lost in the final after an extra round to Andy Souwer. In 2006 though, Buakaw got his revenge beating Andy Souwer to again be K1 Max champion! He has also won the WMC world title and we believe he is undoubtedly the number one superwelterweight in the world! You name them, he has beaten them; Masato, Andy Souwer, Jomhod, Gago Drago, Alber Kraus, Dzabar Askerov, John Wayne Parr, Nicky Holzken, Fadir Chahbari, Jean Charles Skarbowski, Marco Pique! His full record stands at 222 fights with 189 wins, 12 draws and only 21 losses, most of which were earlier in his career in Thailand stadiums. Buakaw commented "This is the only time I will fight in London, and I've never been to England before. I'm really looking forward to it and believe me I'm going to put on a show in London!"

The man set to challenge Buakaw will be none other than Contender UK tournament winner Jordan Watson, one of Englands brightest prospects for many years. The word prospect may be a little misleading though as Watson has been training sinc! e an ear ly age and clocked up over 50 junior bouts before moving on to his adult professional career which has seen him have 29 fights and only 4 losses!

Watson too has some good K1 experience where he made the final of the K1 Max Pain and Glory also held at Seni but this fight is under Muay Thai rules, which Watson is a specialist at and he knows that this fight is a shot at the big time! If any English fighter can beat Buakaw under Full Thai rules then it's Watson.

Tim Thomas will be another headliner on the event. Contracts are pending at time of going to press but his scheduled opponent will be Malaipet Sitpraprom. Malaipet is a well known star in both Europe and the USA and will be a tough fight for Thomas, with Malaipet having a recent win over Richard Fenwick. The fights will take place in the new purpose built ExCeL auditorium which will officially host several of the London Olympic Sports including the boxing event. All seats provide an excellent view of the action and doors will open at 16.45
