Anucha Tasako, a 13 year old boy in Thailand, was knocked out during a Muay Thai or Thai Boxing match this past Saturday, in a Bangkok suburb called Samut Prakarn. It was reported that the boy then died due to brain hemorrhage. Later on, video footage from the fight that circulated on social media revealed that the boy was not wearing any protective headgear, raising serious questions as to the safety practices that were being employed in the Muay Thai scene.

In any sport, from time to time, there'll be accidents. Even more tragic when it's a youngster. Thai boxing is quite violent is it not ? This Lad at 13 should have been quite strong though. Very sad.

Reminds me of the problems with Rugby and youngsters in England - there have been many accidents with necks/backs over the years and as a result, I believe it's under tight control now. Anyway - thanks for posting. The 'Brexit' thread is a bit one sided without you and Robert. ATB
