It’s all going to be part of the first ever Black Tie Muay Thai night at Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort as Singpatogn Sitnumnoi gym and Phuket Has Been Good To Us present a throwback night of fights next Saturday (November 29).
A cocktail reception with bubbles will kick things off followed by dinner and free flow beverages. Various world class fighters from heralded Muay Thai camp, Singpatong gym, will display their skills with several exhibitions and celebrity fights. One of the highlights of the night will include blindfold boxing!
Proceeds from the event will go towards Phuket Has Been Good To US, a Thai-registered charity established in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami. The money raised will enable PHBGTU to continue to expand their much-needed English education programme tat provides free English lessons to more than 1,000 underprivileged Thai children, aged 13–`8, in three government schools in Phuket.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring such an exciting new event to Phuket. Muay Thai has already brought smiles to the faces of the students we support as they practice at their after school programme. Now the sport can help us raise money too!” said Tina Hall, Director of Operations for Phuket Has Been Good To Us.
The event harkens back to the days of early 20th century boxing when tens of thousands of fans would fill stadiums in their Sunday best.
