Muaythai Star Buakaw Banchamek Returns to Bruce Lee’s Home


All Star Fight 4: Buakaw Banchamek vs. Victor Nagbe 2

Fresh of the win against Portuguese Luis Passos at All Star Fight 3 this past Saturday in Bangkok, Muay Thai star Buakaw Banchamek is set for his next fight. An upcoming outing takes place at Kitec Star Hall in Hong Kong on May 21, where he faces Liberian-Australian Victor Nagbe in a three-round rematch.

The pair headlines the fourth edition of All Star Fight, which will be the first event outside of Thailand. Subtitled as a ‘return to Bruce Lee’s home’, it will be the fifth fight of the famed Thai fighter in the Chinese special administrative region, where the legendary Martial Artist and actor was raised.

Buakaw’s most recent fight in Hong Kong was in 2015, when faced a defeat by decision against Russian Khayal Dzhaniev. Earlier in his career he defeated Ukrainian Dmytro Konstantinov, Brazilian Gilmar China and French Muay Thai star of mid 2000’s Jean-Charles Skarbowsky.

The All Star Fight 4 card comprises seven bouts. Among the contests Petchanong Banchamek faces Niclas Larsen of Denmark, while his Thai-fellow Manachai squares off against Abdou Haddad of Canada. The current lineup can be found below.
