Youssef BOUGHANEM vs. Fabio PINCA - Thai Fight, December 6, 2010
The bout, under 70kgs, is particularly interesting : BUAKAW will fight under full muay thai rules, while we were used to seeing him performing in K1.
BUAKAW is recognized for his mastery of kicking techniques, disconcertingly fast and destructive. BOUGHANEM has immersed himself in the real Thai style, he is a elbow strikes expert. He faced the best Thai fighters.
