Buakaw Banchamek vs Fabio Pinca
All Star Fight 3 is held on December 10 in Paris. Sub-titled as “The Fight of the Legends” the event features Muay Thai star Buakaw Banchamek (301-23-12) up against French Fabio Pinca (99-22-4). The bout is scheduled for three rounds at welterweight.
Buakaw Banchamek and Fabio Pinca were previously scheduled to clash back in 2014, challenging for WMC World junior middleweight title. However the bout expected in Monte Carlo didn’t go ahead, when the latter was forced to pull out due to injury received in his previous bout against Thongchai Sitsongpeenong.
Over the course of their respective careers, both fighters faced the A-list Muay Thai competitors. Buakaw fought arguably all of the first-string farangs [not Thai] in the division. On the other side, Pinca, went up against some of the most notable Thai fighters, including Saenchai and Sudsakorn, as well as fought dozens of westerners.
The list of fighters expected at All Star Fight 3 includes Thai Pakorn PK Saenchai Muay Thai Gym, Manachai Yokkao and Saemapetch Fairtex. As well, Ukrainian Sergei Kuliaba, and French Yohann Drai and Cedric Tousch.
Other match ups are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The current line up can be found below.
