“Lumpinee World Champion” every Saturday at Lumpinee Stadium
Interesting fight card next Saturday, November 11th, in the new ‘Lumpinee World Champion’ event, which that is hosted at the “new” Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, and that aims to bring back the stadium’s popularity to its old standards with an event that intends to compete with the many modern ‘Thai vs ‘farang’ format. The event is held weekly and aims to give a chance to athletes of different nationalities ruled by traditional thai scoring on a 5 round 3 minutes distance, in opposition to the large majority of “televised” shows that are now all set on the 3×3 ruled by a custom scoring set up according to the promoter’s guidelines. Lumpinee World Champion promotion aims, with this move, to emphasize the importance of 5×3 connected to Muay Thai’s traditional scoring in evident clash to Kick Boxing’s 3×3, which might have influenced Muay Thai a little bit too much in recent years. The event takes place every Saturday at 20.30 after the classic Lumpinee afternoon show.
