Phuket Provincial Police Chief Maj Gen Rungrote Thakurapunyasiri and the sport association of Phuket President Mr Thammawat Wongcharoenyot confirmed the event will be held on Friday Jan 31 at the outdoor area behind Central Phuket, Floresta side.

Also present at the meeting were local administrative officers, central management staff and other relevant officers.

Mr Thammawat stated the event is being held to entertain both local and international Muay Thai fans whilst developing a more robust sports and tourism culture; Phuket was selected as one of 16 designated ‘Sport Cities’ in Thailand by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports on Sept 26 last year.

Gen Rungrote commented on the popularity of Phuket as a tourist destination, particularly with the growing number of foreigners that come to learn and train in Muay Thai.

He stated that he hopes the event will raise the profile and quality of Muay Thai and the boxers on show and that they can progress to participate at a higher, more international standard.

It was confirmed that the fights will adopt the traditional Muay Thai format of five rounds per fight with each round lasting three minutes.

The fights will also been shown live on TV as several are well known fighters and champions from the Rajadamnern and Lumphinee boxing stadiums including the current ONE Championship Muay Thai Flyweight World Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon who won his most recent bout last Friday (Jan 10) at the ONE Championship ‘New Tomorrow’ event in Bangkok.

It will broadcast live via True4U channel (channel 24) between 6:00-8:00pm on the day.
