I haven't watched K-1 much but I've seen alot of K-1 highlights on youtube and I was wondering about this guy Puramuk, he looks like an animal! I tried looking at google for info on him but he doesn't have his own website. All I could find was that apparently he won the K-1 world max tournament finals for 2004 making him the youngest champion in the history of K-1 then he lost by split decision in K-1 world max 2005 .But then he won the 2006 world max be coming the only man to win it twice. According to wikipedia he started fighting at 8 years old and since has had 407 fights! With all this fighting I wonder how he finds time to go to the bathroom!

Now, that being said, I've never heard anyone talk about him in the gym. I tried a search on FA for him too but came up dry. So I just thought he deserves his own thread at least and everyone can put in their 2 cents worth about what they think of him.

Probably one of the best Thai fighters in MT and K-1 I have seen on the net. I believe he won K-1 2006 as well but dont hold me too it. He has skills.

oh yeah he is a force of nature. He is/was ranked top 3 in the Lumpini stadium. Taison will know a lot more about that than me, but my limited knowledge is that to get a rep in that environment you have to be as good as it gets.

heh, yeah the guy is awesome.

I believe he deserved to win the 2005 World Max event as well. Sadly the K-1 judges have a bit of a history of not being too happy with Thai fighters dominating their events .

What I find most impressive about him is the way he seems to be in a class entirely of his own. He makes otherwise great fighters seem utterly incompetent.

If you rank the top 15 in Lumphini, than you're no longer human. Well, you're human, just not "human" like the rest of us.

Buakaw is a fighting machine. And now he has a wide range of arsenal at his disposal with improved boxing skill.

He is definately good at what he does. The only fault i saw was at times he was hesitant to drop his foot. I wondered also, why none of his opponents chose to try and fight him in the clinch.

K1 does not allow clinching in its rules. You do see guys get away with it for 1 or 2 strikes at most, but it is against the rules.
If it were in the rules, then clinching against a reknowned thai boxer would just be working to his strengths
