The Contender Asia will with no doubt be one of the biggest promotions for the development of Muaythai ever put together. The reality series will see 16 boxers chosen for their skills and personalities moving into the Contender house to fight for fame and glory.
The World Muaythai Council, the world governing body for Muaythai, is the sanctioning body, and in order for all parties to have a clear understanding of the rules, regulations and scoring system of Muaythai, the World Muaythai Council and the Contender production team organized a Judge and Referee course, held in Singapore.
The entire Contender production team, together with the head judges of the Muaythai Association of Singapore, joined the workshop held by the Vice President of the World Muaythai Council.
The four hour get-together had a friendly atmosphere, and will ensure that the Contender Asia, televised around the world, will take Muaythai as an art and sport to a new dimension.
The world is eagerly awaiting the opening of The Contender Asia on 3rd September.
