Muay Thai Weight Class Mismatch?

I recently watched footage of my nephew, Matthew Butcher fighting at Bangla Boxing Stadium in Phuket… …it again seems the promoters abandoned the weighing scales in favour of  “eyeing up”, and memory. Obviously not the most reliable method of matching fighters! It’s frustrating for fighters and coaches alike. And Sumalee Boxing Gym now refuse to [...]

Bleed Less – The Steps to Take Before Climbing in the Ring

Cuts are part of Muay Thai. A well placed knee or elbow can easily result in a profuse cut that prematurely ends a fight (7, 22).
