Back in 2013, Muay Thai Kickboxing legend Buakaw left his gym Por. Pramuk having a big fall out with the management.
For some time after, Buakaw was not allowed to compete in professional matches until his contract completed, so he fought in Exhibition matches instead.
One of these exhibition matches went down at a Max Muay Thai event in 2013 versus an American named Malik Watson who had no idea what ‘Exhibition’ meant.
Watson began landing real punches, kicks, elbows etc, he even went as far as to start show boating when he landed a shot.
That’s when the fight became real.
