Props to the MAX Muay Thai people for having their act together, official vids up hours after the fights, well done. Watching this show, I’m got to give them props.

MAX Muay Thai was held this past weekend in Sendai Japan. Some of the footage is beginning to emerge, and I’ll post them when I find them. The last time these two met was back in K1 Max 2008, when Sato KO’d Buakaw. I’m curious how much the organisers offered Masato etc. Does anyone know […]

This was the main event of the evening… Buakaw vs. Vitaly Gurkov (sometimes spelled Hurkou) Gurkov is fairly well know in the Amateur Muay Thai world. He frequently fights on the IFMA amatuer tournaments and hold 7 titles. He’s probably best know for his victory over Kem Sitsongpeenong at the IFMA championships this year.
