The long-awaited debut of Thailand’s own Buakaw Banchamek, the most famous Muay Thai and kickboxing star is going to happen on Enfusion #63 as he challenges Jonay Risco from Spain for his -70kg World Title.
Buakaw doesn’t need an introduction to combat sports fans as he is the most recognizable Muay Thai fighter and kickboxer in the world. Throughout his illustrious professional career, which spans more than 20 years, he became the first ever 2 time K-1 MAX World Champion, winning the tournaments in 2004 and 2006. Besides his K-1 success, Buakaw’s accolades include a Shoot Boxing S-Cup World Championship in 2010, a WBC Muaythai Diamond Championship in 2014, a WLF World Championship in 2015, Kunlun Fight’s Muaythai Middleweight World Championship in 2016, and the list goes on. He is also unbeaten since the end of 2016, aiming for his 8th straight win against Jonay Risco at Enfusion #63.
Buakaw’s opponent is Jonay Risco from Spain, current proud owner of the Enfusion -70kg World Championship. As the best Spanish fighter in his weight category, Risco has already beaten one of the biggest names in kickboxing, Andy Souwer (The Netherlands), looking for adding Buakaw’s name to the list as well!
Enfusion #63 will be live from Abu Dhabi, UAE, on the 9th of March. For more info and a complete fight card, visit www.enfusion-tv.com
