Combat Banchamek full fight videos & results

buakaw-nagbe

In promotions like Thai Fight, it’s fairly obvious that the Thais are always slated in bouts that are commonly mismatched, where they are far greater in both skill and experience as opposed to their western counterparts.

But Muay Thai icon Buakaw Banchamek is hoping to turn the tides around with his very own promotion, called Combat Banchamek, which hosted its first event just yesterday in Surin, Thailand.

While Buakaw also fought on the card, apparently, he did the match-making himself for the rest of the contests on the line-up. And mind you, he didn’t exploit the role by a long shot. In fact, he offered no favors by pitting himself against the always dangerous, Victor Nagbe.

Buakaw entered the 154-lbs/69.9kg bout on the heels of 27 straight victories. His last defeat came at the hands of Andy Souwer in the semis of a K-1 World MAX tournament in 2009. Nagbe, meanwhile, was more than a decade younger than his Thai opponent, but still carried some serious credentials under his belt. A finalist on MAX Muay Thai’s tournament last year, the 19-year-old previously featured at a Xtreme Muay Thai event just a fortnight ago, where he stopped Kem Sitsongpeenong via knockout.

The match-up was close altogether with Nagbe springing a few surprising spinning-back elbows that caught Buakaw off-guard on a couple of occasions. But it was the latter who pushed the pace and landed the cleaner shots throughout, getting the better of Nagbe in the clinch exchanges as well. Buakaw deservedly took home a decision victory and extended his win streak to 28.

Saenchai vs. Kamen Picken took up the co-main event slot. Saenchai and Picken fought on the same card at Yokkao 7 two months ago, and they both picked up convincing victories on the night. Saenchai faced a massive disadvantage in height and reach heading into this 143-lbs/65kg clash.

Saenchai was perhaps overwhelmed by his opponent’s lengthy figure and superior reach in the opening stages. However, as the fight progressed, he found his range and timed his signature left kicks from the southpaw stance to perfection. A couple of clean punches and trips found their mark as well and the Thai fighter did well to outpoint his counterpart for a decision triumph.
