Hi I'm an 18yo amateur boxer from the USA kindve at the end of my ropes here, cant afford college dont have any family to help out. All of my time that isnt spend working is spent boxing I train for at least 3 hours a day run 3 miles a day spar twelve rounds a few times a week and my coach puts my name on every local amateur show that pops up. Unfortunately it's very hard to nab a fight as an amateur in my state as people constantly pull out for one reason or another so I've had it where I cut down to 165lbs from 190lbs in a month only for an opponent to pull out two days prior. My living situation here is quite volatile and rent is not cheap I've managed to save a little bit of money almost 3k. My passport is expired and I dont know much about muay thai but nothing seems to be working out here and I'm kinda tired of everything just falling apart I would love to spend all of my time training and I'd love to compete often I was wondering if it would be worth it to take the chance in purchasing a one way ticket to Thailand? I'm sure training in the US isnt as rigorous as in thailand but I've taken my fair share or knocks over the years already and in relatively confident in myself as an athlete do you think a trip to Thailand would be the right move, what are some things I should know ?
