10:20 Thank you, thank you for visiting

10:50 You really come from bangkok?
10:55 yes, from bangkok. I’m worried about him, I want to see him
10:56 I’m worried about him, I want him to be happy and live good
11:02 what do you feel, when you know the news about his absent from the camp?
11:06 I’m really worried about him
11:07 Worried about, will he fine. will someone kidnapped him.
11:12 When you know that he go back home
11:15 He deserve for it !!
11:16 I believe that, when it dawn, the bird will fly back home.
11:20 Where we born, we naturally want to be back there, back home
11:24 I want him to be relax in mind, to feel good
11:29 I think boxing is , hmm , something different.
11:34 he has to control his heart, training is really important
11:38 where he feel good, we have to give him
11:59 what will you buy today?
12:00 I have to buy sheet for the bed, I haven’t been home for so long. it is so dusty.
12:10 really long time, that you have to buy new one?
12:13 yes, really long time
12:15 That’s mean, this time you will stay here so long
12:17 yes, I think I should be here quite long. So I can change it to be new one.
12:55 One touchable things that the people here is really happy and welcome about Buakaw’s homecoming is
13:02 is that they come together, helping each other to build a training stage for Buakaw to train here.
13:07 Just some few days, the training place is get into the shape
13:11 Who has force, helping with force, who has material, then help with material
13:16 They try to find wood and everything without thinking of wage or value or to sell anything.
13:24 Everyone come by their heart.
13:32 [man voice] Dr.Yim tell us that, he want him to be here. (the local people call the sport sci trainer as doctor because he take care of Buakaw heath)
13:34 We are really happy. We really want to help, construct this training camp. Just a few day we can do it. We don’t want to get any money for this
13:43 [man voice is the voice of first boxing teacher of Buakaw]
13:44 We help each other, we think this is good. The young people here can see this as example as idol.
13:50 Maybe we will have the next Buakaw
13:58 People here build the camp, even they are poorer than Buakaw, but they want to give something in return to Buakaw. That Buakaw bring the name for the village.
14:15 A lot of local people tell me that, Buakaw is not just hero in this time. Even when he was young, when he was 7 - 8 or 10 years old, he is also hero here.
14:41 When he went to box somewhere, we bring everyone to cheer up him, to help him from that time, from he was young.
14:47 It is not, just now, not just when he is famous and then the people here like him.
14:51 They said, when Buakaw is young, he is more hero than this time. The people here please him really much than this time that he is already famous
14:54 Do you think, a sport player as Buakaw can be found again?
14:59 I think, it is like, in our life, to see a good sport like Buakaw. It really long time, not that often.
15:13 Compare to Tong (Tong is a really really good thai snooker player)
15:14 Until now, we still don’t have Tong2
15:20 Hard to find
15:23 Compare to Kawsai (Famous boxer, not muaythai, another), until now we still do not see anyone like him
15:28 Even someone that can be similar, still hard to find.
15:33 Compare to Paradon (Tennis player), to be better than Danai is still hard to find (Danai is also a good player but not as good as paradon when he was in career high)
15:44 I think in every sport, it is quite the same.
15:48 For Buakaw, I think it is the same. End of him, it is also hard to find someone to be this good for us to enjoy as sport fan.
15:57 I would like everyone to save him, so we have a good boxer to see for such a while.
16:25 [text in logo >> Buakaw, a life outside fighting game]
16:42 As you see, this is a boxer, a world class boxer
16:45 But his training camp here is the same as normal a rural area training camp.
16:49 It is an easy build, the roof from grass, the main columns are wood from neighbor here.
16:58 Situated not far from the rice field, one side is rice field, another is potatoes field, another side is cow and buffalo shelter and the grass shelter.
17:08 We can say that the atmosphere here is so nature.
17.30 Oh, the neighbor also making this cement?
17:32 You see, when he is here. we use a color bucket filled with cement
17:39 This is the cheap method, even Buakaw is the world class boxer :)
18:12 What about his mind state?
18:15 [sci-sport trainer voice] I think, his mind is good. For me, really good. the best in 20 year.
18:21 What do you think that make his mind better?
18:23 He again meet his family, he is like going away and cannot be back that often.
18:35 When he can come back again, to see the same atmosphere, to see the field, the buffalo. He don’t want to be back to Bangkok
18:46 If he has to go back, then he should have more  chance to be back here.
18:52 There are many offer for him to go to Japan, Europe. As I know, he said he has like 10 offer to go to make money aboard.
19:09 He say, he don’t want. He just escape to here.
19:12 He run away from money to the rural area !!
19:14 Because it is more comfortable for the heart
19:29 When we are old, everyone should have saving money or something
19:34 He is more mature, now he is 30 already. Everyone, if they can be home, they will be happy even without money.
19:39 if with money, then it even better
19:42 He can fully put his effort in anything, he is getting his confident.
19:49 We may can see him even in the next 3-4 years, In fact, it can even just 1 year left somehow with his body.
19:52 But if he has to be in the system, constantly over use his body.
19:58 yes yes, too much over use the body, that is not good
20:01 maybe, then if it continue, then in the end after he retired and get old. He left nothing as the same as another thai boxer.
20:21 When he is on training session, there will be the neighbour around this area come to see him.
20:29 He is really hero of the village, not only when he became famous, but also a village hero from he was young. When he go box outside the village, the people go to cheer him
21:01 When he come back, do you come here to see his training that often?
21:04 Always,
21:04 He is the hero here?
21:05 oh yess, sure, he is always our hero, from long long time ago
21:10 When he was young, he went box somewhere else, did you go to cheer him?
21:15 Go, where he box, we always go to cheer him
21:18 We stop working, when he go to box somewhere. Whatever job to do, we stop.
21:24 If we don’t have van, we will go with Motocycle 3 people. Wherever
22:00 Even he is not stay in the camp anymore, but he always train himself, running both moring and evening.
22:12 Especially in this period, he has to box again in the next one week. (in Thai flight 2012)
22:28 Do you know him?
22:29 Yes,
22:29 who?
22:29 Buakaw po pramuck, he is hansome, I’m really glad, I has never seen him before. My husband love him, but he is not here. He just left the house.
22:46 Along the way that he run, the people always come out to see him. They have seen him only on TV, never meet him directly.
22:23 Are you getting ready for boxing again?
Yes, I get up early and run, fit my body. Both morning and evening
22:36 The distance from home to here is around 6 km, back and forward is around 12 13 km.
23:45 Is it the same as you was in the camp or here?
23:48 Yes, I have to do this. Wherever I am, I have to maintain my body in the good condition.
23:57 Here, you are good both your body and mind, right?
24:01 Yes, good. Here is the area around my home, seeing it make me hearty and feel great
24:11 Running here, did it remind you of the old atmosphere when you was young?
24:14 Yes, the same, the same as before.
24:20 When I was young, I don’t know much. Sometimes I run along in the rice field.
24:29 Here is your boxing teacher? , also from when you was young? and he follows you when you’re running?
24:32 yes, the same
24:38 You haven’t do like this for so long, right?
24:41 Yes, so so long. around 15 years
24:42 How do you feel?
24:45 I feel really glad that he come back. .. to do the same again.
24:52 You mean that you can be his teacher again?
24:54 yes,
24:54 did he change from when he was 15 years old? , and now he is 29-30
25:01 Yes, a lot of change. He has more experience.
25:07 But his discipline is still the same right?
25:10 yes, he is really diligent, as the same as he was young
25:14 when he was young, he run everyday, the same
25:17 yes, everyday
25:20 he is more diligent than other child in the village?
25:24 yes, he is
25:25 Then he grown up, is he still the same?
25:26 yes, the same
25:29 What do you feel, that he come back this time? when he has problems. What do you feel that he choose to be back home?
25:34 At first, I heard the news. I’m quite shocked, because he is absent from the camp
25:46 So, I try to contact him by telephone. Then I have talked to him and he is safe
25:55 OK, you feel relax when you know he is safe?
25:58 yes
26:00 This is the back to the past, is it?
26:01 Yes, it is like back to the past. In my thought, even I have been to many place, been famous, but my heart want to be back here, to begin again.
26:16 I think it should be good.
26:18 Do you remember what is around here?
26:21 In the past, when I was young, I have been boxing there.
26:24 Do you see the temple, that was where the temporary boxing stage. I have been box there.
26:32 You know everything in this area?
26:40 yes, all around, I’ve already play around.
26:42 This give the different feeling, that you come back to the old place.
26:46 yes, I can remind myself how I start.
26:52 I haven’t expect that I can come this far.
27:02 Even I have been so famous, people say why I don’t go to live in the elegant place or expensive one.
27:13 Actually, it is the contrary. My heart, my mind is not like that.
27:20 That is just the people view, that I can go to live in such kind of place (expensive condominium)
27:35 For me, the best is like this, here is the best.
27:39 The field, like this la
27:42 Is it like this, your origin is come from rural area, even you get so famous, but if you can remind this, you will never be rapture. never forget yourself.
27:55 yes, I don’t forget where I start, and so I know exactly and concentrate what I am doing now.
