Exclamation Buakaw Banchamek to meet Manny Pacquiao in the Ring

Yep, you read it right the first time.

Buakaw and Manny are gonna meet in the ring in the interests of closer ties between Thailand & the Philippines.

The meeting will be a freindly amatuer boxing bout and both countries will make an international announcement soon.

This is the announcement on Thai TV and the clip is from Buakaw's You Tube channel. It's in Thai, but I'll do a better translation when I get to my computer, I'm on the iPhone now and hate typing on it.

On paper this looks exciting...but...

1. Buakaw is not a pro boxer (even though he's had basic training)
2. Pac has experience in Muay Thai but he is not on Buakaw's level as a Muay Thai specialist
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?

I heard during his younger days he did a bit of Muay Thai training. Makes sense, since he was in Thailand fighting a lot of Thai boxers. I'm sure it's very basic though. Who do you think wins in an MMA match? Could be interesting.

It floats my boat as I'm a fan off both and its as intersting as it is unexpected, to me anyway. It'll be interesting just watching how they interct with each other out of the ring let alone in the ring even if it is really just a light spar and a boxing lesson for Buakaw.

In answer to you question in a MMA bout who wins? Well, one seasoned champion fighter with two weapons takes on another sesoned champion fighter with 8 weapons....you do the math.....

About Pac's expereince in Thailand, it doesn't work like you say. When a Pinoy boxer gets flown over to fight a Thai (which happens regularly) he is flown out no earlier than a week, usually does the press conference in a hotel for the Thai media, given a pair of Twinns boxing shorts, fights and before he's had time to get to the top floor of MBK he's on a plane home. Not enough time to learn how to say kick in Thai let alone how to throw onen. He was never based in Thailand and I think only fought there a handful of times.

I'd say that's an boxing Urban Myth.

I'm having a nostalgia.

There was a statement from Pacquiao about 3 or 4 years ago that he might try MMA after retiring from boxing.

I'm interested to see how they mesh, even in a friendly light spar. I don't think more weapons automatically mean more success, the styles and individuals make the most difference. Crossing styles with boxers has always interested me.

I thought that was just a publicity shot for when he toured Thailand?

Still, interesting to see the sparring match. I'd have loved to see Somrak in there.

yeah he was young when he trained yaw yan, I dont know where this picture is from. You are probably right. I just found this picture looking for the video that used to exist on youtube of Pac kicking pads. sorry if I wasnt clear.

I agree, like that little impromptu technical spar between Seanchai and Buakaw had at some demo in Italy(?) you could feel the tension and surpressed competition through the computer screen. Pac & Buakaw should be fun.

I know it's a different thread, but I've got a little info on that fight Stormy posted you asked about, nothing special, but a bit of background. I just need to check something first an then I'll post.

Will watch this with interest

On a side note, Freddie Roach might be ailing with his Parkinsons. But his hands are still sharp.
