International organisations join fight against child boxing

File Photo :Many children in Thailand become professional muay thai boxers to help support their families and make money for boxing camps. But some of them end up with serious injuries that can sometimes prove fatal.

THREE WEEKS after a 13-year-old boy died in a muay thai ring, the bill banning children from participating in paid matches has yet to reach legislators.

In response to this, the Child Safety Promotion and Injury Prevention Research Centre (CSIP) has stepped up pressure on the Tourism and Sports Ministry by listing the concerns about child boxing raised by well-known international organisations. 

The organisations include the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP), the World Health Organisation and the US Labour Department. A letter from AAP addressed to the Royal College of Paediatricians of Thailand “applauds” Thailand’s efforts to prevent children from sustaining injuries, but stresses that sport in which children “intentionally attempt to cause harm to the opponent” was unacceptable.
