The cover reads: Let it be. I do not care.
[Buakaw P. Pramuk is a Thai fighter who has recently lost his desire to fight after quarreling with his trainer and others. Here he declares that even though he is still under the contact with the P. Pramuk Boxing Camp, he did not care. The “Let It Be” refers to the Thaksin pronouncements in Laos and Cambodia to his supporters that they should be willing to drop legal cases related to the last few years of political strife (so he would be able to return to Thailand).]
