This is a must to do - we visited the stadium and really enjoyed seeing the fights - the refreshments were nice and cold and the staff were very attentive - they had plenty of fans around the room to keep you cool

We’re a bit worried about attending due to some of the reviews. Me and my husband attended. Good night out for the price, stadium fine, plenty of seats, cheap drinks, toilets fine. Don’t think worth ringside we had stadium seats. Pick up went well in cool mini bus and taxis outside when you want to leave.

Really enjoyed our night here, we were a bit apprehensive after reading the reviews but it was really enjoyable, a few of the fights seemed a little like they were going through the motions but you cant go expecting to see a world title fight, some of the fights were really entertaining, its all handled professionally and the staff are really friendly, pick you up from your hotel and drop you back off again.
Drinks and food are really reasonable and the VIP seats around ring side are worth paying the little extra for.

Five combats in the beggining, one was cancelled and the other have only 3 rounds. Then, one of the fights were between 10 year old childrens. Total tourist bait

The boxing was good and quite aggressive. We saw seven fights some only lasting one round with knockout punches. 3 teen bouts 3 adult bouts and one child bout. 1200 baht each which I thought was fair enough for a different experience that lasted around 2 hours. You can pay 1500 baht for ringside sofas. Seating very worn again fair enough they are still comfy. You can get a large beer inside for 100 baht. Not half full and our taxi driver actually came in the arena to find us after. Only third time of opening since COVID and if you want a different experience in Thailand then go for it

So... here’s a nice small stadium, with competent professional staff and what looks like a good enough show. At first glance, it seems professional and decent. Price was a little steep (1200 Baht), but professional
fights are expensive events. So i went.

The first two fights were ok. Thai fighter against Thai fighter, same weight class, similar skills. They gave a good show but were obviously not trying to hurt each other... not seriously anyways. They were respectful and mindful of each other.

Third and fourth fights, however, were a load of elephant dung (we are in thailand... they have elephants...).

Third fight was a Thai fighter against a french fighter. The presentation claimed they were the same weight, but the french was a full head taller, was much broader and had at least 20 lb on the poor Thai fighter. The french basically threw him around in the ring and knocked him out without breaking a sweat. Noooot what i was hoping for by coming here.

Fourth fight was another international, a brazilian, that was (according to the experienced fighter sitting next to me) much more skilled and more more fit than the poor Thai fighter he was up against. The latter got knocked out pretty quickly... barely stood a chance.

The last fight was good. Two internationals really going at it... a good show for sure...

But fights 3 and 4, really seemed like a show to make some tourists feel good...
« Come and see internationals kick a Thai fighter’s butt at a martial art they created» seemed to be the underlying message.

Not my idea of a good show... or a fair fight...

I do not recommend we encourage these institutions.... you’ll get much better shows on the web... for free...

Take a Muay Thai class instead!

Attended with my 22 & 24 yo son's to view the local cultural fight night. Sat in the ring side leather lounge seats which gave us the best viewing of the night. Eight matches were listed and as Thai fighting goes, it was ordinary for a paid night out. The standard was like going to watch a local (free) football match. Some fighters were not fit, did not appear to want to be in a combative match and the referees were constantly telling the competitors to fight. There were some good matches which ranged from a first round (30 sec) TKO, one fighter just giving up and returning to his corner during the fight and others going the full 5 scheduled rounds. A mixed bag. Hardly any spectators in the stadium, the majority being westerners. I saw similar events advertised in Patong (much larger city) and I wished I had attended one of the events in Patong (title fights scheduled with international fighters). Due to the number of westerners in the stadium it would have been good for announcers to explain some of the rituals and decisions in English (to us). At the end of a 5 round fight, the fighters both left the ring before any decisions were made - no idea how decisions were made as the judges (score card) had not yet handed in their scorecard (no electronic scoring) to the fight judge who called the decision....after both fighters had left the ring.

Great night watching different weight classes and ages in the ring. Comfy seats at ring side and cheap bar with clean toilets. A few people complained on here about the ages of some of the fighters most are 16+. As for the younger ones please bare in mind this is Thailand’s National sport and children do compete and enjoy it. Just like football back home.
