Excitement is building among students at Rattana Bundit University (RBAC) as a celebrated boxer prepares to join the university’s business administration school during the 2013 academic year.
Opinions are split as to whether this is a shrewd marketing plan on the part of the university, or the result of the athlete’s honest desire for a bachelor’s degree. Sombat Banchamek, aka Buakaw, a 31-year-old Surin native, will have to juggle between his boxing camp and the campus for the next four years so as to complete his education.
Check out the gallery of Buakaw’s new role as a freshman below.
