Royal Thai Residence is a proud sponsor of the fighters at Petchrungruang Gym in Pattaya. A rising star is Angie, a unique fighter in every way: she’s a kathoey (Trans) fighter who began training Muay Thai only 2 years ago and, after impressing the Muay Thai community with her victory at Thepprasit Stadium this month, has been booked for her debut at the Lumpinee National Stadium in Bangkok – a huge step for Angie and she will be the first openly, visibly kathoey fighter ever to enter that ring for a fight. It’s a huge honor and Royal Thai Residence is making sure to support Angie’s process as she rises to the challenge.
Angie vs Sagon set for September 19, 2017 at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok.
On Sunday, September 10, the owner of Royal Thai Residence, Khun Prasit and the head of Petchrungruang Gym, Kru Nu, will bring Angie to Bangkok for a media event prior to the fights on the 19th. Today Khun Prasit visited Petchrungruang Gym to watch Angie’s training and offer her support in anticipation of this big step up for her.
