This should be a very interesting match up. If you watch the interview of Buakaw in the Kick Fighters documentary, he gives JWP his props. He basically acknowledges Parr’s abilities and that if they were to meet (K-1 Max) it would be “Soo See Mak” a very close match.
In a recent K-1 Fans forum post JWP goes on to call this “the fight of my life”. It’s gonna be a battle, Anyways I’m looking forward to it and wish him the best of luck.
