This was from the NYE Sengoku show in Japan. Buakaw takes on Hiroki Nakakijma (k1 max runner up) in this kickboxing rules event. Buakaw has come of a little winning streak, those who follow MMT will know the White Lotus just one the S-Cup (Shootboxing) belt a few months ago. You can watch all of his S-cup fights in this single clip. Props to Galaxy Jill for providing both of these clips.
It’s not the Buakaw of the past, but he still looks good. I think Buakaw was beginning to enjoy himself a little bit towards the end of the fight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him yelling “Oiy” while slamming his shin into someone. Props to Nakajima, for his conditioning and perseverance, he ate quite a few solid left kicks to the midsection.
Wasn’t the most beautiful fight, but It’s good to see Buakaw in actions.
