Press conference booked for Buakaw vs Manny Pacquiao
Next week, a press conference will be held to announce a bout between Buakaw Banchamek and Manny Pacquiao. While this appears to be a cheap publicity trick, both fighters appear to be attending the event in Bangkok.
The event is touted as ‘The Match of Legends,’ and the main event features a fight between Pacquiao and Buakaw. Cynical fans may have some concerns, but the promoter in question has previously worked closely with the Thai icon. See
Everyone and anyone
Pacquiao is widely regarded as Asia’s greatest boxer. He is now a busy politician and an elected senator in the Philippines, but that hasn’t stopped him from booking a few exhibition fights.
He fought YouTuber DK Yoo in South Korea last December. He was meant to fight Jaber Zayani in Saudi Arabia in February, but the fight never happened, and he has also signed with Rizin.
Pacquiao’s propensity to contract with anyone and everyone has cost him. He was forced to pay $5.1 million to Paradigm Sports Management earlier this year for breaching a contract with the agency that represents Conor McGregor and others.
While Buakaw is the most well-known Muay Thai fighter on the planet, he is not as well-known as Pacquiao. He is also not quite as wealthy; the boxer is reported to be worth $200 million USD.
If a Korean YouTuber and self-proclaimed martial arts teacher can secure an exhibition boxing match with Pacquiao, there’s no reason why the world’s most famous Muay Thai fighter can’t do the same. However, the fact that this revelation was made at the last minute will not help persuade skeptical fight fans.
Buakaw is scheduled to face Saenchai PKSaenchaigym in a bare-knuckle Muay Thai match later this year. However, it appears like the two guys are spending more time playing football together than preparing for a fight.
Anyone who is getting thrilled about the prospect of Pacquiao fighting Saenchai should take a few deep breaths. But the press conference is certainly taking place, so we should find out what is going on with her next week.
Pushing 45, Manny Pacquiao set to announce ring return
Manny Pacquiao is likely to return to the ring next week after holding a news conference for what is expected to be another exhibition.
According to multiple Asian media sources, Pacquiao has organized a press conference for the media to attend. Pacquiao will confirm a fight with kickboxer Buakaw Banchamek in some way.
However, some speculate that the entire thing is a PR gimmick. As a result, more information will be required before official confirmation.
Pacquiao last fought in December, defeating another martial artist, DK Yoo. Two other non-sanctioned fights appear to have fallen through since then.
Pacquiao was scheduled to face French boxer Jaber Zayani in February. The event never got underway. Pacquiao then claimed that he would fight in July. It never happened again.
