While he arguably didn’t destroy Enriko Kehl most fans still consider Buakaw the ‘real’ winner and say that the outcome of the match was pre determined. Lots of conspiracy theories now going on there with Buakaw himself apparently announcing that he wouldn’t fight the extra round if the fight would have ended in a draw after…
