Default Re: Buakaw Banchamek to meet Manny Pacquiao in the Ring

3. Pac's promoter Bob Arum would not allow MP to risk an injury especially if he has a boxing match in the near future

Edit: I miss the "friendly amateur" part. I suppose it's more of a play? Not very interesting if you ask me. But whatever floats your boat. I want to see a real fight in which both fighters are allowed to use their strengths (basically an MMA match)
Is just a bit of fun not a serious bout, probably more like a demo.

I think the call of Pac's beloved motherland trumps uncle Bob.

Pac has MT experience? When? Where? How?
