Once a month, on the last Sunday of the month, the large Tor Yaemsuan boxing camp is transformed into a real stadium for an entire day dedicated to Muay Thai fights.

Located in the suburbs of Bangkok, in the Saphan Sung district at Soi Nakkila Laemthong 10, the Tor Yaemsuan Gym opened its doors in 2023. This boxing camp, although still young, has quickly gained notoriety thanks to its modern facilities and the quality of its fighters.

In this event, the boxers competing come from different boxing camps in Bangkok and surrounding provinces. Some even travel from very far away, like the young fighters from the Petch Muay Thai Gym located in Hua Hin, about 250 km from Bangkok.

The fighting begins at 10:00 a.m. and continues uninterrupted until late afternoon. Nearly forty fights take place throughout the day, offering a continuous and intense spectacle to Muay Thai fans.

Fighters, of all ages and technical levels, prepare and warm up outside. They have their coaches massage them with namman muay oil (heating oil) and bandage their hands as the matches unfold.

The atmosphere is very family-friendly, with the boxers accompanied by their family and friends who come to encourage them. This warm atmosphere contributes to the unique appeal of these days of fights at Tor Yaemsuan Gym, where everyone comes to share their passion for Muay Thai.

For children and teenagers who have few fights under their belt, this is a great way to test themselves against new opponents and gain experience in the ring. Most of the fighters are locals from the country, but it is not uncommon to see foreigners come to fight during this day at the temporary stadium of Tor Yaemsuan Gym.

The fights take place in three rounds under the supervision of judges and official referees of the Thai federation.

Sometimes, trophies are offered to participants in recognition of their performance and sportsmanship.

In addition, a belt from the “Tor Yaemsuan” stadium is sometimes up for grabs, providing fighters with additional motivation. These well-organized events help create a competitive and encouraging atmosphere for all participants!
