Today I was making my way through Sanam Luang and caught a few monks and about five labourers, sitting, crouching and intently waving their arms at a tiny TV set perched on a dirty folding chair.  I stopped behind them to check out what was going on.  Ah….the weekly fights on Channel 7….

As I’m getting ready to leave Bangkok to start training in Isaan, I realize I’ve been taking a lot for granted. One such thing is the amount of high quality fights there are in this City of Angels.  Free ones included.

For those of you who are planning to hit Bangkok, I suggest checking out the free fights Channel 7 hosts in the north end of the city.   I suspect they won’t disappoint; they’re broadcasted live weekly.

The energy is good – the studio/stadium/whatever-it-is is packed with loads of shouting Thais and some Falang.  If you’re Falang, you’ll be ushered towards a ground level seating area – it’s your choice if you want to hang there or get crushed on the bleachers.  Either way, it’s a good time.

The logistics:

Channel 7 Stadium – Bangkok
Behind the old Northern Bus Terminal (Morchit), opposite Chatuchak Park

Tel: (662) 272-0201

Fight Schedule: Sundays, from 1.45 p.m., third Wednesday of each month starting at noon.
Free admission

For those of you who can’t make it to this end of the planet, there are a number of sites that stream Channel 7 live.  These are the best ones I’ve found.  Enjoy…

About Laura Dal Farra

I’m a Canadian who decided to quit my job, sell most of what I own, pack a suitcase, and skip continents to pursue a martial art. A minimalist. A modern nomad. A kid who just likes having a good time. My attraction to muay thai is that it’s an art with no wasted motion. I spent four years in Thailand training muay thai fulltime. I still live a nomadic life and muay thai continues to be the constant among the variables. I document much of it all on my site Milk.Blitz.Street.Bomb. Be prepared for updates, rambling, video content and anything I’ve learned that I think may of use to you. This hasn’t been easy, but so far, its been a pretty sick ride.

  1. channel 7′s a good time…kind of like AAA for nak muays…loved seeing the line-up card…fun ( if you can read thai) to see the left-over ones w/ bettor comments scrawled on ‘em…or the scratch/handicapping sheets sold outside…

    speaking of chatuchak, has anyone ever wrote about it here?

  2. Nope, i dont think so..

  3. chatuchak is a huge open-air (kind of) market where just about everything’s for sale… from tourist kitsch to hardware…want souvenir t-shirts? buy ‘em 10 for 200 baht…aromatherapy oils? take your pic from about 100 stalls…almost everyone’s willing to bargain…it’s hard to describe , difficult to get around, impossible to see it all in one day but definitely worth a visit…

    there are also animals/pets for sale…and it’s hard not to walk away w/o a puppy or kitten :)

  4. sundays were the most fun when i was in thailand. all the fighters and the trainers would gather and hoot and holler at the tv.

  5. didn’t notice till now who the author is…laura, how’s the siam crew? are norbert and phon still there?

  6. This is great! Anyone knows when they usually have fights on Channel 7? I don’t speak Thai so it’s a bit to hard for me to read their schedule…

  7. Channel 7 fights are televised Sundays starting at 2 o’clock.

  8. Celtic1967, I started jogging in Train Park, right next to Chatuchak Park. It’s nice, quiet…WITH CLEAN AIR!

  9. brownnhornet,

    i feel you…it’s nice to find some real green space in bangkok…are you still there?

    used to love hitting lumpini park early a.m., especially when all the seniors are doing their group calisthenics and the lizards hiss at everybody from the lagoon…lol

    but yeah, train is quieter for sure…

  10. Yep. I’m still here. By the looks of things, I’m about to get my non-immigration business visa.

    Anyway, last week was children’s day. So, obviously, quiet wasn’t how I’d describe it.
