Chiang Mai gym to get fights

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm going to Chiang Mai in the summer and I'm amped up so I'm starting my gym search early. I'll definitely take the advice I've seen on this forum to try to get a feel for a gym in person but maybe someone knows of a gym or Kru who might be a good match based on my situation.

I'm over 30, not in killer shape, work a schedule that will only allow for 1 training session a day, haven't had any fights, and I'm nearly blind without contact lenses. Weigh ~80kg. Male. 

Goal is simply to get fights. I'm very much an amateur and just want to do this while I can. Dream gym helps me get legitimate matchups and understands that living as full time nak muay isn't in the cards right now but I do want to fight.

Hongthong has connections to both local and must-travel-for promotions and would have a good likelihood of having someone relatively near your size for training. But of course it always depends on who is there at the same time, which is the same issue for whether or not you'll have fights. If they don't have opponents, there's not much they can do. But they have experience with bigger fighters, beginners, finding matches. They know where to look and have connections that give you the best chances. I'd go with Hongthong.

Thanks, I was also thinking Hongthong would most likely be the best place to start. I never really thought about the logistics of this process until I decided to take the leap. It is encouraging in a way because I assume just being available to show up has some value.

Yes Hongthong will book you fight if they can (depending on your size etc). 

Althougth, as of early March, there was still no fights in Chiang Mai. If you want to fight like now and often, you'd be better off in Phuket or Krabi. 

Thanks for the suggestion!! 🙂
