For those who don't know this man... his name is Buakaw, a Muay Thai legend and one of the greatest fighter of all time.
Buakaw is very famous around the world. He is equivalent to Michael Jordan in Basketball, and or Manny Pacquiao in boxing.
Just like Pacquiao, Buakaw is considered a hero in Thailand.
But unlike Manny Pacquiao, Buakaw loves to fight in front of his people, in his own country!
Buakaw also fights intenationally like in Japan, USA, and Europe.
But he fights in Thailand most of the time, in front of his countrymen.
I used to think that Manny Pacquiao is fighting for the honor of Philippines.
But how come he loves to fight in Sin City-Las Vegas.
There have been numerous attempts and requests to convince Pacquiao to fight here in the Philippines
but Pacquiao just answered such requests this way..."mahirap gawin sa Pilipinas pero susubukan natin"
I know why it's difficult for his fight to happen in the Philippines- it's because of the money.
Pacquiao said many times before that he is fighting for the honor of his country.
But he's not even interested in fighting in front of his countrymen anymore, not like the Thai Legend- Buakaw.
The truth is, Pacquiao is not fighting for his country anymore, but fighting for the money.
The Manny Pacquiao of today has changed a lot...
he turned is back from the Holy Rosary,
he turned his back from the power of the Cross,
he turned his back form the Catholic Chucrh,
he is not listening the advises of his mother anymore, Mrs. Diosnesia,
and now Pacquiao is turning back from his own country...
I hope that Pacquiao's 5th fight with Marquez will be stage here in the Philippines.
But the possibility of that happening is next to impossible because, as what Pacquiao meant when he answered such requests-
money is not enough, meaning the price will not be right...
Anyway, here's a video of the great legendary Thai fighter-Buakaw, fighting in front of his countrymen:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgWudgh88Kc
