All Star Fight 3 Bangkok
Muay Thai event All Star Fight 3 takes place at Super Export Shop in Bangkok, Thailand this coming Saturday April 28. The televised show features seven international bouts with Buakaw Banchamek battling it out in the main event.
Muay Thai star Buakaw was originally lined up to face Niclas Larsen of Denmark. The bout fell out when the latter was forced to withdraw due to skin infection. Portuguese fighter Luis Passos aka “Africano” took the fight on four day notice, saving the show.
“Luis Passos from Portugal is the man for a number of reasons – and one of them is the fact that he has ‘Stepped Up’ to face off with ‘Global Fighting Icon’ Buakaw Banchamek on this weekends All Star Fight: Part III. The ‘Africano Cinderella’ is on the plane as we speak writing the next chapter of his ‘Fairytale’ story – this is no movie, but this is what dreams are made of. Can the young, hungry 23-year old overcome the ‘The Son of Surin’?” the promotion announced on Monday night via Facebook.
