Style vs. Style, Sport vs. Sport or Nation vs. Nation?

Some of Thailand’s Muay Thai promoters are seeking a Thai vs. Filipino / Muay Thai vs. Boxing match up between their legend Buakow Por Pramuk and Boxing great, Manny Pacquiao.

The Bangkok Post has the scoop:



Somchai Charoensombat, with the backing of the Sports Writers Association of Thailand and boxing promoter Narongwas Buamas, came up with the idea and presented it to Charin Suankaew, president of the King Rama IX The Great Foundation. Dr Charin is in charge of organising the annual boxing show.

His Majesty’s 85th birthday will fall on Dec 5 but no date has yet been set for the match.

“No matter how much [money] Pacquiao demands this fight, we will make it happen,” Mr Somchai said.

Mr Somchai said contracts will be signed on Thursday in Manila.
