From Buakaw Banchamek facebook reported

30 August 2012. Mr.Vichai Raksriaksorn, the chairman of Leicester City football club & Group Chairman of King Power Group of Companies, & Mr. Nopporn Wathin, the President of Sport Art Co. Ltd., the

organiser of Thai Fight, held a press c

onference at Pullman Bangkok King Power Hotel. They announced their success is organising the international muaythai competition 'Thai Fight King of Muay Thai', as well as their plans for Thai youth to train with Leicester City football team. Also present at the press conference were 4 of the 5 Thai muaythai fighters participating in Thai Fight - Buakaw, Singmanee Sor Srisomphong, Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee & Armin Pumpanmuang.

Mr. Vichai said that they succeeded in organising the last Thai Fight event in Leicester City because they received great support from British fans who flocked to the event, & were able to attract an audience of 10,000. They thus have plans to make Thai Fight an annual event in the UK. They also have plans to select 16 to 18-year-old Thai football players next January for 6 months of training with Leicester City football team, & those who perform well will get to continue for an additional year. Apart from these, King Power also has the idea of establishing a Thai Fight Academy in Leicester City to allow more Britons to learn muaythai & to promote the sport in the UK.

Buakaw said that he is happy that the number of Thai fans interested in muaythai has increased. The next Thai Fight event will be held on 19 September 2012 in Lyon, France & will feature Singmanee, Sudsakorn & Armin. Buakaw however will not be fighting in this event as he is scheduled to fight on 23 October 2012 in Thailand, & will also take on the double duty of being both promoter & fighter for a Thai Fight event that will take place on 6 February 2013. The February event will be held in Surin as a tribute to muaythai fans from his home province for their continued support & sponsorship.
