Watch Channel 7 Fights Worldwide

15

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 Author

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.
