Unfortunately this is one event we didn’t get to see, this time around anyway.
What we did see (and hear) were the boxers riding around on the tops of trucks. There was a recording playing, lauding the boxer and his achievements and informing onlookers of when the next show would be held. Louder and more forcefully spoken than any other part was the word, “TONIGHT!”
These trucks were riding all around town and as that word repeated itself over and over it became both catchy and annoying at the same time. While talking to each other we would sometimes throw that word in, “TONIGHT!”, just for a laugh!
As the trucks ride through town, they’ll stop at busy locations and a guy with flyers will jump down and run around passing them out. So, if you go to Phuket, you’ll definitely get the chance to see these guys, even if you don’t go to the show.
Here are a few more photos. As you can see from them, and from the flyers we had, there are quite a few nations represented in the event. Also there were two women competitors.
This guy was posing on top of the truck for photos. There were a couple of us there on the sidewalk with cameras ready.
