Muay Thai Legend Buakaw to Compete in Final Kickboxing Bout on December 2 in Thailand at RWS


Muay Thai legend Buakaw Banchamek is expected to compete against Nayanesh Ayman in what is said to be his final kickboxing match in Thailand on December 2nd at RWS: Legend of Rajadamnern event in the iconic Rajadamnern Stadium in Bangkok.

Buakaw vs Nayanesh

Thai icon, Buakaw is scheduled to face Nayanesh Ayman at Rajadamnern World Series in Rajadamnern Stadium next month. Per a press release, Buakaw revealed that it will likely be the final fight of his kickboxing career in his home country.

“I don’t want to say this, but I think that RWS: Legend of Rajadamnern on 2 December may be the last time I will fight kickboxing in Thailand,” Buakaw said. “It’s a bittersweet feeling, because there’s no other place I’d rather fight kickboxing than at home in Thailand.

“When I walk out in front of the home crowd here in Thailand, I always feel happy and at home. My fight at Rajadamnern Stadium on 2 December – might be my last nine minutes in the ring fighting kickboxing in front of my home fans– and may be the last opportunity fans will get to come watch me fight kickboxing live at the
stadium. After this, I might seek new challenges in boxing.”


Buakaw’s Final Kickboxing Match will Broadcast Worldwide

Buakaw’s bout with Nayanesh Ayman will serve as a rematch of their showdown under the Kunlun Fight banner five years ago. On that night, Buakaw earned a first-round knockout. He will look to deliver a repeat performance and give fans in Thailand his absolute best before wrapping up a legendary career that has spanned three decades and more than 300 fights.
