Muay Thai icon Buakao Porpramuk on Wednesday filed criminal defamation charges against Nopparat Poottharatanamanee, demanding 10 million baht from the deputy managing director of ThaiFight for a slur on his reputation.
Mr Nopparat, alias Joe ThaiFight, said in an interview last month that Buakao's fight in the Max World Champions 2013 in Surin province on May 6 was "an acrobatic act" rather than boxing.
The renowned fighter, whose real name is Sombat Banchamek, said in a lawsuit filed at the Bangkok North District Court that Mr Nopparat's comment on the fight damaged his reputation.
