Two big Muay Thai matches were canceled after two fighters were reportedly poisoned before the bouts.
Two matches, “Persistent Man” (Seksan A. Kwanmuang) vs. “Superbank” (Rattanabundit U.) and “Petch U-thong” (A. Kwanmuang) vs. “Petch Tavee” (S. Kittichai), were canceled at Ratchadamnoen Stadium yesterday as two of the fighters, both of whom belonged to the same camp were found badly poisoned.
After the weigh-in, “Persistent Man” and “Petch U-thong” showed symptoms of drugging which included frequent urination and weariness.
When both of the fighters went up to the stage to apologize their fans, Petch U-thong fainted while standing.
Sunthorn U-thong, their trainer, said he was very confused because the boxers’ energy drinks were secured under lock, Siam Sport reported.
