Thai Boxers of Patong

The boxing stadium of Patong is somewhat of a pilgrimage site for the Muay Thai boxing world. It is where to experience the sport in its raw environment. One of the best parts of going to the boxing at Patong is that you can wander freely around the backstage area watching the fighters ready themselves and absorbing the energy of the event. The fight itself has a real ceremony about it. Incredibly tough fighters at the top of their game seemed to take a couple of rounds to size up there opponent before absolutely laying into them. The sound of the blows was formidable and harsh. This is not a ring to be in if you don’t know what you’re doing.
