I did a little digging but it appears the Por.Pramuk camp did know about the fight. From what I’ve gathered Buakaw was in the originally approached to be in the event. The Buakaw fight however appears to have fell through, which is standard in the fight promotion business.
I think it’s shady that you can go to the Slamm’s site and they’re still pimping Buakaw all over their site and still have him in the line up knowing full well he won’t be there. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb by saying that he’s one of the marquee names that’s selling tickets for these guys.
Another forum post points to the fact that if you were to look at Buakaw’s schedule they’ve never had the Slamm event on their schedule. Some people are speculating that the promoters paid Por. Pramuk to use Buakaw’s name and image, others believe that the fight fell through after they started promoting the fight.
What do you guys think?
