The Andaman Boxing-Poovanant Muay Thai team were crowned the competition's first ever champion.
Spearheaded by Emyuden Group, Bangla Boxing stadium, Ta-Ied Boxing stadium, Sinbi Muay Thai and Doctor Best Kamala, the event was organised to raise funds for Pairach Permpoon, a Muay Thai referee who's been battling cancer.
Phuket's Muay Thai training camps, including stadium doctors and a team of reporters from Muay Siam – the runners-up – all participated in the competition.
The laid-back event saw very little instinctive elbows or knees, and saw immense support for the cancer stricken official. Lion Muay Thai placed third while Dragon Muay Thai placed fourth.
A second event is in the works as one Muay Thai trainer claimed, “Kicking a football together is a lot more fun than kicking the bag alone”.
Organisers are also planning a charity Muay Thai event to raise money for the referee.
