Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC)  has paired two of the most legendary Muay Thai fighters up for its upcoming event, BKFC Thailand 5 live today / tonight. Buakaw Banchamek and Saenchai are sharing the Squared Circle, where the former has already earned his first BKFC win. Buakaw finished Erkan Varol via first-round KO at BKFC Thailand 3 more than a year ago. Now he has set his sights on another win.

“I’ve never faced anyone quite like my opponent. Saenchai is a true legend in the sport, and what makes it even more exciting is that you can never predict how he will fight. However, in the end, there can only be one true legend of Siam,” said Banchamek to BKFC in August.

“There will be no holding back. It’s going to be a genuine fight with real pain. I’m always confident when I step into the ring, but you never know what Saenchai is going to do, so I can’t predict how I will win, but I am sure I will win. If this were Muay Thai, fans might predict the outcome, but when it comes to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, it’s difficult to predict.”

For Saenchai, he has remained active in Muay Thai, going 2-0-1 this year. Recently, the 43-year-old earned consecutive KOs against Danilo Alves Reis and Tophik Abdullaev, respectively.
