Buakaw has been the World Champion in 2006. He is still an active fighter and has fought 5 times in 2011. He is on an 11 fight winning streak, winning fourteen of last 15. The only person to beat Buakaw twice is the legendary Andy Souwer.
Many people think that the only way Souwer (and other dutch kickboxers) are able to beat Buakaw is because only Dutch Kickboxing has a heavy hands emphasis, wheras Muay Thai kickboxing has fewer rules, and places more emphasis on elbows and knees to the head.
Buakaw is a big kicker, and has usually relies heavily on his legs to carry him through his fights. One of his most legendary fights ever occurred in K-1 two years ago when he fought a very tough Brazilian named Andre Dida. During the first round, Dida came out and stunned Buakaw early, catching him with several brutal hooks to the head. Buakaw, however, being the beast that he is, ate the punches in stride and survived the round. Rounds 2 and three were quite different, as Dida had punched himself out in the first round, seeing Buakaw hurt and trying to beat him.
