Manny Pacquiao vs. Muay Thai Superstar Buakaw Por Pramuk? Apparently, Maybe!

Is Manny Pacquiao going to fight the Muay Thai kickboxing superstar Buakaw Por Pramuk? The answer is maybe.

According to an article posted on BloodyElbow, a couple of promoters from Thailand are interested in matching the two in a boxing showdown, and are willing to pay whatever the Filipino superstar requests.

“No matter how much [money] Pacquiao demands this fight, we will make it happen,” Mr. Somchai said. Mr. Somchai said contracts will be signed on Thursday in Manila.

This fight would be a part of a celebration for the king of Thailand’s 85th birthday.

Well I just don’t know what to say. First and foremost, how serious would their boxing be? Will the fighter be going full force, trying to knock each other out? If so, I understand that there is a ton of money to be made here, but would it be worth the risk for Manny?

Beating Buakaw would be yet another tremendous achievement for Manny, but then again, it would be a boxing victory by a world class boxer over a non-boxer. What do you guys think? Would it be worth it if it was a serious fight?

Buakaw Por Pramuk record stands at (205-21-12), and he fights at around 153 pounds.
