Myanmar Boxing
 
Information
Another sport I covered on my recent trip to Myanmar was a local from of kick boxing called Lethwei. I asked my fixer to find me a good local gym in Yangon. There we found around half a dozen boys and young men engaging in one of the toughest work outs I've ever witnessed. Punch bags weren't hard enough so the trainer had a frame built to hold truck tyres to that the boys would have to kick and punch.
Moe, my fixer, had managed to get me a ringside pass to a Myanmar-Japan tournament that weekend. As a great coincidence one of the boys was fighting in it and I was able to follow him into the ring.
It was the most brutal fighting I've ever seen that's actually legal!
Myanmar won all of the fights. I don't think the Japanese visitors knew what had hit them!
