I’ve been very lazy with this blog, and life in general, lately but a few days ago I went downtown to watch the Muay Thai at the MBK shopping centre. Held on the last Wednesday of each month, the fights may not be the same quality as at Lumphini or Ratchadamnoen stadiums but they are serious contests, unlike some of the Thai boxing “shows” you might see in tourist areas. I certainly would not pick an argument with any of the female fighters :
Many of the fighters are foreigners studying Muay Thai, so they are serious enough about it to spend plenty of time and money to travel to thailand and fight, and none of the Thai fighters want to lose to a foreigner !

The honours were split pretty evenly between the Thais and foreigners this month.
The fights are held every last Wednesday of the month, starting at 6pm, on the undercover forecourt of MBK shopping centre, close to the National Stadium BTS station.
