Buakaw Finds Last Minute Opponent In Passos
Looking to bounce back from his first loss in seven fights, Buakaw Banchamek returns to Bangkok on April 28th to face Luis Passos at All Star Fight 3.
Banchamek, who lost in his most recent fight against Jonay Risco, has been praised in his native Thailand and considered a national hero.
Originally set to face GLORY fighter Niclas Larsen of Denmark, Buakaw now is set to face Portuguese fighter Luis Passos, after Larsen pulled out due to a skin infection.
Larsen, who was 3-3 inside the GLORY ring, pulled out of the fight four days prior to the event, leaving the entire event in limbo. Yet it would be the man known as the “Africano Cinderella” who saved the day before the clock struck midnight.
