Buakaw is a Monk

Buakaw has become a monk.

Yokkao, Buakaw Banchamek’s sponsor, have tweeted and facebooked pictures of the former Por.Pramuk prodigy who earned worldwide acclaim with his exploits in Japan, and have announced that the former 2x K-1 World MAX champion, Shootboxing S-Cup winner and Omnoi Stadium Muay Thai champion is now a Buddhist monk.

The picture shows Buakaw in the traditional orange robe with shaven head. Thais generally become monks and embark on a path of spiritual enlightenment, or simply do it to clear their heads, due to the stresses and strains of life, and we know Buakaw has had a fair few of those recently. It is not known how long he will undertake this spiritual journey for; it could be a matter of weeks or months… or longer. Who knows?

As a fight fan, one hopes that he returns sooner rather than later, with a clear mind and emotional stability, and returns to doing what he does best – providing he still has the motivation.

The 2012 Buakaw saga thus continues…

    I can only imagine that Mo – MA will use the building for
    office space — perhaps freeing up much-needed room for its own sorely cramped
    permanent collection — or tear it down and start again. In
    architectural drafting, the working drawings are all plans, elevations,
    and details needed by the contractor along with the specifications,
    so that an estimate can be obtained and then the building
    can be constructed. The architects who designed in the commercial style were mainly inspired by perfectly designed
    commercial sectors.

    Thee fact is that not a lot oof people enjoy this particular game genre because it
    requires far more thought and intelligence than many of the
    games where you just run around randomly shooting
    at things. As a big Yankees fan, I remember Mattingly’s streak
    very well. Examples of some traditional games include basket ball, hockey,
    football, cricket etc.
