The Boomdeksien Gym belongs to the 26-year-old graduate of Chetuphon Commercial College, Mr. Boom Apiprat, who is passionate about boxing, especially children’s boxing. His camp was located in Udon Thani in the northeastern region of Thailand. It was one of the best camps in the Isaan region for children boxers.
In 2019, Boom Apiprat, in partnership with Sor Sangthai Gym, opened a new camp near Bangkok in Nonthaburi in the Rattana Lake View Village.
The Boomdeksien Gym camp is funded by a patron, a wealthy lawyer whose home is in Nonthaburi and is sponsored by the famous online gaming site UFAR1 (Bets on football matches and casino games). The camp is also called “UFA Boomdeksien”.
“Boom” refers to the name of the owner “M. Boom Apiprat” and “Deksien” means “Talented children”.
The Boomdeksien Gym has been selected for the “Best Camp of the Year 2022” award, thanks to the excellent results of his Team of great fighters.
Boomdeksien Gym was chosen by the jury in the final list of the 10 best boxing camps in Thailand in the year 2022, prestigious camps such as Parunchai Gym (Best camp of the year 2015 and 2017), Jitmuangnon Gym (Best Camp of the Year 2019), P.K. Saenchai Gym (Best Camp of the Year 2016), Boon Lanna Muay Thai Gym, Sor Jaruwan Gym, Dejrat Gym, Sor Chockmeechai Gym and Singha Mawyn Gym.
Boomdeksien Gym is in the final for this prestigious trophy with Sor Chockmeechai Gym and Singha Mawyn Gym, the big winner will be elected in April 2023.
The Boomdeksien Gym camp includes about fifteen fighters of very high levels. The youngest of the Boomdeksien Gym fighters is 11 years and the oldest is 20 years.
School children do a 10 km run in the morning before going to school and when they have finished their lesson, at 4 pm, they do a 5 km run before starting their training at 4.30 pm.
The boxers then continue with 15 minutes of jumping ropes and 15 minutes of shadow boxing. They are coached by two experienced coaches, Ajarn Thepkon Kaennorasing (Boxing specialist, 100 Boxing fights and 50 Muay Thai fights) from Khon Kaen and Khru Dam Hadao (200 Muay Thai fights) from Korat.
Former ring star Karuhat Sor Supawan (112 lbs and 122 lbs Lumpinee Champion) sometimes coaches the young champions.
Coaches take turns taking the boxers to the paos. For boxers preparing for fight, they undergo an intensive round of paos that last 15 minutes, it is extremely long and trying. Boxers also do several 5-minute rounds of punching bags.
All boxers meet in the ring to perform a 30-minute clinch session. They complete their spartan training with typical strength exercises, sets of push-ups and abs, and 10 back and forth rope climbing, on a 10-metre high rope.
During the important weight loss before their fight, the Boomdeksien boxers inflict themselves strenuous sessions to losing weight. The camp has a small sauna where the boxers, in sweat clothes, stay long moments to sweat. Then, to lose the last grams. They undergo a real torture session, locked in a car in full sun, sitting without moving, they lose litres of water. Boxers end their ordeal with a cold water bath and a massage with ice cubes. It takes a lot of will and determination to endure these terrible physical sufferings…
