Kebap Co.

I toyed with the idea of writing about food and restaurants but had second thoughts since I wanted my main focus of this website to be about Muay Thai.

Buakaw vs Yodsanklai – Is it for real this time?

Fresh off a victory over the weekend, Yodsanklai may be facing fellow countryman Buakaw later this year.
