Buakaw was supposed to make his American debut under the Stand Up Promotions banner but due to certain issues the fight was not able to materialize. It seems American Muay Thai fans will get their chance to see Buakaw fight after all. The recently announced Muaythai Premier League is looking to make a big impact with its first event, a re-match between Buakaw and Dzhabar Askerov will head line their inaugural event which will take place September 2nd in Los Angeles, CA. Buakaw defeated Askerov via decision in 2007 in a K-1 Max event.
Also expected to take place on the card will be a re-match between John Wayne Parr, and Baxter Humby. The pair fought back in 2002, a fight which Parr won after Humby's corner threw in the towel in the third round. Humby has stated he didn't agree with his corner throwing in the towel, and called out John Wayne Parr earlier this year.
