Whats next for Somrak?
After his triumphant return to the ring on the 4th of October Olympic hero Somrak Khamsing gave his thoughts on any future fights, including his desire to fight Muaythai superstar Buakao Por Pramuk.
At a press conference to announce the up coming Channel 7 tournament, Somrak answered a few questions about any plans to fight on after beating Yodwanpadet decisively. Somrak said he wants to fight Buakao Por Pramuk and would put up several million baht in a side bet between the two. Somrak stated he wasnt just saying it to promote himself, but wants the fight, he also stated that he has never been too impressed with Buakao’s skills as a Muaythai fighter and that he only fights weak, inexperienced foreign boxers.
Regarding the proposed fight with Khem Sitsongpeenong. Somrak stated he knew that promoters had contacted Khem’s team and they had agreed to the fight, but Somrak said he knew himself what his condition was though and would need at least one if not two warm up fights first, stating he saw Khem as a tougher prospect than Buakao.
Somrak’s backer former Deputy Prime minister Somsak Thepsuthin said that Somrak needs some more time to get in better shape and stated that he has instructed Kiatpet promotions to try to find some suitable opponents as warm ups for Somrak.
Mr Pirapong Thiradetpong also known as Chun Kiatpet, the head of Kiatpet promotions said that they have contacted Former Lumpini and Ratchadamnern champion Jomhod Kiatadisak as a possible opponent for Somrak and are waiting confirmation from Jomhod.
