For those new to Muay Thai, a couple of times a year the Thai and Burmese will come together and hold some fights. They typically take place around festive times of the year, the end of the rice harvest etc. They take place almost exclusively in border towns… and what would be more appropriate for long time rivals? The fights are bare knuckle.
Well not actually, they get to wrap their hands with either some hemp or gauze. The KO ratio is these fights have to be around 90%, the fights are a little scrappier but entertaining nonetheless.
I couldn’t think of anything more frightening, being in a Thai border town having a Muay Kaad Chuek fight…actually I can… How about being in a Thai border town, having a muay kaad chuek fight with Saiyok!
Saiyok is a beast… if you need any proof check out this HL Reel. Anyway sit back, grab some mekong whiskey, some sticky rice and larb and enjoy the show.
