Patong Boxing Stadium

2 59 Sainamyen Rd, Tambon Patong, Amphoe Kathu, Phuket, 83150

The Basics

Tickets for the Patong Boxing Stadium are priced similarly to regional matches in the west, and travelers come from around Phuket to watch the fights here. Choose between VIP, ringside, and stadium seats, all fan-cooled. Stadium seats are the cheapest, but the benches can get crowded and hot on busy nights. Premium-seating options are similar to the seats you’ll enjoy in a movie theater: close to the ring, with waitress service. Saturday nights are most popular with locals.

When to Get There

The Patong Boxing Stadium hosts fights on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday nights, with Saturday the most atmospheric day to visit. The action starts quite late in the evening, but it’s worth arriving early to allow time for getting lost—and to grab a beer or two. Early arrival is particularly important if you’ve booked a stadium seat.

What Is*Muay Thai*?

The termmuay thai simply means “Thai boxing.” But the sport, which is centuries old, is also known as “the art of eight limbs” because it uses knees, elbows, shins, and forearms as well as hands and feet. The elements that create drama are the explosive power that fighters cultivate in their feet and legs and fighters’ willingness to absorb injury.
