Ferocity, power, and heart; these are just some of the qualities that come to mind when the name Buakaw, is mentioned. As one of the biggest superstars in Muay Thai history, Buakaw Banchamek is certainly no stranger to anyone who knows anything about martial arts or fighting. But even after having more 300 fights in his over 20 year long illustrious career, there some things even his most fervent fans have yet to discover.

BUAKAW BANCHAMEK AND THE LIFE OF A MUAY THAI CELEBRITY

Banchamek is  globally known as one of the most famous Thai fighters in history. Buakaw Banchamek is used to being in the spotlight. As we sit on the floor of his gym, talking about his career. His history, his thoughts for the future, we’re interrupted by the occasional Muay Thai trainee-fan, excitedly presenting Buakaw a Banchamek t-shirt to sign. Buakaw signs each shirt mechanically. We go back to our informal interview, and his responses are polite but stiff, unenthusiastic in the way of someone who has been interviewed dozens of times before. The Muay Thai calls of other fighter-trainer pairs provide the soundtrack to our conversation.
