Bell tolls for legendary Thai boxing stadium from reuters.com
Every muscle of Sattan Muanglek’s body glistened as he was rubbed down by his trainer with liniment, its herbal odour permeating the dank corridors of Bangkok’s legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium before a historic fight.
For once the Thai fighter was not focused on the prize. Friday’s match was his last in one of Bangkok’s oldest boxing venues, which will be demolished after 57 years to make way for high-rise urban development.
“Lumpinee closing has left me speechless. I could barely concentrate the first time I boxed here I was so excited. This is where every young boy dreams of fighting,” said Sattan.
Like many men who choose the rigorous life of a Thai boxer, 21-year-old Sattan came from a poor background and saw the national sport as a means to support his extended family.
