Both Thai and international Muaythai fans had a great end to the year when they were given the chance to attend two awesome nights of fight action at the Pattaya Boxing World Stadium, located in front of Mini Siam in north Pattaya.
On December 28, the venue hosted the Sitpholek International Thai Boxing Charity Gala, which again filled the stadium with spectators looking for top class fight action. The fans were not disappointed either, with some fights ending in amazing knockouts and others lasting the full 5 rounds and going to the judges’ decision.

Two days later, on December 30, the Pattaya Boxing World hosted “Muay Thai Combat Mania” which proved to be another excellent and exciting fight night and featured two legends in the sport; Yodsanklai Fairtex in the blue corner, fighting Kem Sitsongpeenong from the red corner at the 71kg weight division. This main event fight had been much anticipated and talked about by Muaythai fans around the world. The contest labeled “Fight of the Year 2012” was true to its name, with local fighter Yodsanklai knocking out Kem in the third round with an elbow.
Pattaya Boxing World Stadium hosts real Muaythai fight nights every Wednesday and Friday evening at 8pm, along with Muaythai cultural shows throughout the week. New to the stadium is wrestling every Saturday evening, giving spectators and enthusiasts exciting and entertaining nights of combat sports.
