I’ve just confirmed that they Thai Fight are indeed looking to put this fight together. The match up would take place on February 7th to coincide with Muay Thai day in Surin (Buakaw’s hometown).
Apparently they’re going to offer Petrosyan 2 Million THB or approximately 64,000 USD to take the fight.
Until it’s signed I don’t see this happening. Firstly, Petrosyan has a good thing going with Glory, if he fights in Thailand and doesn’t KO Buakaw he’ll lose.
Its rather ambitious of the team Buakaw… he hasn’t fought anyone of Petrosyans Calibre since he fought Andy Souwer in 2009. Not sure why Thai Fight would want to throw their hero under a truck like that, do they actually think he can win?
What do you guys think? This happening?
