Traditional boxing event to be held next month

A TRADITIONAL boxing competition will be held in March, with organisers estimating that the event may arouse a greater interest from local audiences than international events.
Organised by the Myanmar Boxing Federation in cooperation with Great Tiger Group, the event is scheduled to be held on 4 March at Mandalay’s Kandawgyi Garden at 6pm, featuring traditional boxing performances by ethnic-minority athletes.
At least 20 well-known athletes will take part in the event. Mandalarian Phoe Kay will fight Kyel Lin Aung, while Thabyaynyo will face Thway Thit Aung, Min Naing Tun will face Joka and Ye Thway Ni will face Tun Lwin Moe in the bouts.
Tickets will be available at two teashops—Kima Tin Win at the corner of 35th and 76th streets and Sein Win Café between 34th and 85th streets, with prices ranging from K10,000 (US$8.07) to K30,000 ($24.22).
