Got a call to watch the Muay Thai Fights at MBK in Siam Square area of Bangkok. Luckily I live there and it’s just down the street. Meet up and it was quite the spectacle. Believe it runs every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:30 and features lots of international fights. Sadly a Canadian guy from Ottawa got destroyed by this Chinese guy. Kinda reminded me of the China vs N. American economies but we won’t get into that.
There is a large lively crowd, intense music, it’s televised, has charismatic ring ladies and is generally a good time if you’re into that type of thing. “Nothing like the smell of tiger balm in the evening”. I will note that no one from Thailand lost. I almost felt at one point it was as though they’d have a great fighter from Thailand and bring some lamb from another country to get slaughtered, if that makes sense.
Personally, never been a fan of watching people beat each other.
Interesting update coming later.
