Scandal on the Muay Thai scene, Daraek ousted as sexual predator

Muay Thai champion Daraek is accused of blackmailing his female TikTok followers for money by extorting them for sexually graphic images. The athlete has more than 400,000 followers. He has swiftly amassed a social media following while winning matches at competitions like “Muay Super Champ” and “Muay Hardcore,” both of which are shown on Channel 8.

A popular Muay Thai news page wrote “boxer from south-Thailand with 400k TikTok followers has been tricking his female fans”.

The day after the news broke, Hannah, a Canadian fighter based in Phuket, shared an exchange she’d had with Daraek on her Instagram story.

In an effort to be granted permission to go on with his Muay Thai career, Daraek has subsequently come out. He acknowledged all charges and pleaded with the Muay Thai community for forgiveness.

He said: “First of all I have to apologize to everyone that I’ve disappointed and I promise that I will not let something like this happen again. Sorry to everyone who follows me and sorry to all the fight fans for everything I did, I take the responsibility alone. Hope that one day the Muay Thai community will allow me to return and do the job that I love again.”

However, the Muay Thai community finds no justification for forgiving him and demands a lifelong ban from competing.

Boat Petchyindee, owner of the Petchyindee camp and a reputable promoter, said that Daraek owes him money and that “there’s no place for guys like him in Muay Thai.”

Tim Fisher, the owner of the Revolution Muay Thai gym, described Daraek as a “sexual predator.” He said that more inquiries would be undertaken, and reaffirmed that no one at the facility was aware of his misdeeds.

Since being expelled from his gym, the 26-year-old athlete has deactivated all of his social media accounts. At this time, it is unknown whether any of the victims have reported the incident to the police.
