Buakaw & Petrosyan Will Meet Again

buakaw thai fight

Thai Fight are putting on the biggest cross-over Muay Thai / K-1 fight there is to make.

On February 13, 2013, Buakaw will take on Giorgio Petrosyan in a Muay Thai rules bout.

Buakaw was the Omnoi Stadium champion & Toyota tournament winner (in the Lumpinee Stadium) who famously crossed over to Japan’s K-1, and – to Anglicise an American phrase – kicked arse and took names.

One of the men who rose to the forefront of K-1’s 70kg “MAX” division towards the back end of Buakaw’s 2004-2009 streak was the Italian sensation Giorgio Petrosyan.

Petrosyan’s only loss came at the hands of Buakaw’s then-team-mate Nonathon Por.Pramuk, but it is a widely held belief that the result was slightly affected by the very nature of it being at a Por.Pramuk event. He faced Buakaw too, in a regional Scandinavian K-1 event that was a glorified qualifier, but that fight in itself was hugely significant; the men battled to a draw.

Now, they will rematch, and both the Muay Thai and K-1 communities will tune in with baited breath.

Also rumoured is the super-fight between Sudsakorn vs. Fabio Pinca – a classic top Thai vs. top farang fight – and also appearing will be the monstrous Saiyok, Lumpinee champion who hasn’t lost since 2007 in a 30+ fight win streak outside of a headbutt at the hands of Mo Khamal.


Peace, Light & Love to all.
