Good fight probably.

Somluck would have a 50-50 chance in the pro' ranks. With how shoddy Espinosa's chin was he would even have a chance there.

But I wouldn't fancy his chances. Some decent stylists and some awkward monsters around that time.

As Sugar said; Medina would've been an interesting bout.

He might well have fit the Rocky Juarez role a few years earlier and in much less fights as a guy good enough to beat the B level guys but would fall short at the very top. But I doubt he'd have cemented himself in the upper echelon unless he outboxed Naz on one of Hamed's off days (and in the late 90s he had a few)

Intriguing but not a locked down guarantee for high level success.

Where you gonna' be first week of Feb' Boran?

Thanks Flea, good post.

Just the idea of it Somluck vs Naz......Boy, I'd have loved to have watched that at the time. Great fighter sure, but I never could warm to Naz. Could of been classic or an almighty ugly affair. Anyway, Somluck would have him now tht's for sure!

In Feb....Swilling around somewhere in the almighty Tom Yum that's BKK! Are you booked?

Somrak signs a six fight deal starting with the Jomhod bout in December. Money really talks in Thailand. That was the first time Raja has been filled for years andit seems Somrak still has really star followingin the Thai fight scene. I secretly hope Jomhod does ajob on him!

Boy is he pushing for that Buakaw bout......check the last paragraph:

After his recent successful return saw a packed out Ratchadamnern stadium, there has been a lot of talk and rumors regarding the future for Somrak Khamsing and the Muaythai ring. Today a press conference was held to witness Somrak signing a six fight deal, starting with a fight on the prestigious Lumpini birthday show on December the 7th.

Since the October the 4th victory over Yodwanpadet there has been talk almost every day of Somrak fighting again, with several fighters calling him out and Somrak himself stating a desire to fight Muaythaï superstar Buakao Por Pramuk. Today’s press conference gave Somrak the opportunity to set the record straight regarding up coming fights.

The promoter of the October promotion Wanmitchai promotions headed by Mr Sumeth Suasattabongkot seeing the huge interest in Somrak returning have agreed to a 6 fight deal with Somrak earning 300,000 baht a fight and at today’s press conference gave Somrak a 30% deposit of 540,000 baht. Mr Sumeth stated that it won’t always be easy to cover the purse for Somrak’s fights in Lumpini and Ratchadamnern alone, but are also looking into the possibility of television rights so his fights can be seen across the country.

Somrak’s first opponent on his six fight deal will be another Muaythai fighter with Worldwide recognition Jomhod Kiatadisak at 68 kilos. With the fight set for the prestigious Lumpini birthday show on December the 7th and the fight due to have a side bet of 4,000,000 baht riding on it.

When asked about some of the names mentioned such as Khem, Nong-O, Singdam. Somrak stated he knows himself his physical shape now and whether he is ready for such challenges and stated that he would need a few more fights first at least. Mr Sumeth also said that Somrak has a huge reputation in Thailand as the first ever Olympic Gold medalist and they won’t rush him against such opposition until his results prove they would be even matches, not wanting to damage Somrak’s reputation or name.

Regarding the subject of Buakao, who’s name has cropped up several times regarding Somrak and his wish to fight him. Somrak stated he would like to thank Buakao for helping to spread Muaythaï worldwide. When asked if he thought he could beat Buakao, Somrak said that he isn’t afraid to lose as in the sport you have both a winner and a loser, he said that he has fought no less the 350 times in Muaythaï and had to stop at 19 as he had no opponents left to fight and in terms of the art of Muaythai feels he is second to none in technique. This Somrak feels would make him a lot tougher opponent than most of Buakao’s recent foreign opposition. Somrak also stated that he feels it would make history for the sport and would be a massive success if promoted and put on in Thailand, but with recent statements that Buakao most likely will only fight non Thais, putting it on will be likely next to impossible.

I hope Somrak doesn't fight Buakaw. It'll be sad to see a legend get a hiding.
