Find out more here...

On November 7th, 2009, Elite Boxing will unveil its vision for the future of muaythai as it hosts the company’s official grand opening party at the Baan Klang Stadium in Pathum Thani.

The evening officially gets under way with red carpet events and interviews when the doors open at 7pm but the real action begins an hour later with the first of the evening’s six high-profile international muaythai bouts. Between fights, guests will be entertained by martial arts demonstrations, DJ shows, ring girl competitions and two live performances by Thailand’s number one hip-hop band, Thaitanium.

The brand new Baan Klang Stadium provides the ideal venue with VIP boxes, ringside seating and an elevated stage ensuring that both VIPs and muaythai connoisseurs enjoy the evening’s entertainment in the comfort of a luxury venue.

Combining the best international muaythai fights with quality entertainment at luxury venues is very much what Elite Boxing is all about. The company’s founder and managing director, Toli Makris, explained, “Muaythai has great international potential, but it has never been marketed properly. We want to take it to the next level and attract a new generation of fans. With luxury venues like this and the support of bands like Thaitanium, we now have the tools to do that.”

To realise this vision, Toli knows that Elite Boxing has to shake off the old image of muaythai as being a sport for the poor at rundown stadiums where foreigners are largely excluded and even many Thais find themselves alienated from their national sport. Elite Boxing will launch two new series in 2010 to show the world that muaythai has grown up.

Starting in January, Elite Fight Night will be a monthly event that follows a very similar theme to Elite Boxing’s very own grand opening. Also held at the Baan Klang Stadium, Elite Fight Night will seek to attract a new generation of muaythai fans by combining international fights with an evening of entertainment.

Also in January, Elite Boxing will roll out its flagship product, the Thailand vs Challenger (TVC) Series. Following a grand opening at the Royal Paragon Hall, Thailand’s finest muaythai fighters will be defending national pride against various challenging nations in a series of events at exclusive venues around Thailand.

The TVC series further develops Elite Boxing’s vision of making muaythai accessible to a whole new demographic as it seeks to attract expatriates and corporate groups as well as young and trendy Thais by offering them the raw action of muaythai together with a full evening of quality entertainment in the comfort of a luxury setting.

Naked Farang has 5 pairs of ringside tickets for the grand opening party on November 7.
