Blindfold Boxing

A fun sport to watch in Thailand is Blindfold Boxing. The idea is quite simple. Put two people in a boxing ring, blindfold them, and then ring the bell. The results are often hilarious as the fighters swing out at thin air trying to make contact with the other boxer. To make it a little easier, dried nipa palm leaves are laid on the ground so that it makes a rustling sound as the boxers walk over it.

    I imagine this can make for some interesting fights and possibly some very frustrated blindfolded boxers. I wonder if they have strategies and tips for those who might want to give it a try?

    Haha, I’ve never seen that before. It may actually make Muay Thai interesting.
