- Don’t leave in your bag
- Put in well-ventilated area
- Use an anti-bacterial spray
- Newspaper to absorb sweat
- Fabric softener sheet
- Smells nice again!!
1. Don’t leave in your bag
Your hot, dark, damp, sweaty training bag is the perfect breeding for bacteria. If you just leave your gloves in your bag after each training or sparring session, you’ll find your gloves smell more and more. If you do nothing else, take them out of your bag when you get home.
2. Put in well-ventilated area
This can be in a utility room, garage, shed or conservatory with decent air circulation. Mesh bags can be great for carrying your gear that can be used to hang your stuff to dry it out. The main thing is that the gloves need to be completely dried out so the bacteria has no moisture in which to breed.
3. Use an anti-bacterial spray
Before hanging your gloves to dry, you can help kill the bacteria by using an anti-bacterial Febreeze spray or something similar.
4. Newspaper to absorb sweat
Add a few sheets of screwed up newspaper into each glove, this will help take out all the sweat and moisture out of the gloves.
5. Fabric softener sheet
Best tip of all… buy some cheap fabric softener sheets! Put them in the gloves around the newspaper to start to get rid of the smells. Then when your going to use the gloves again, rub the sheets around the inside of the gloves for extra freshness.
6. Smells nice again!!
Your boxing gloves are one of those things that tend to start smelling really bad over time, especially if you work hard! They are a massive breeding ground for bacteria and over time it can get really bad, so bad that other students will avoid sparring with you!! So don’t be that Muay Thai Fighter… follow the above and everyone will still love you!!!

“Why do they stop fighting and just walk around in the last round?”
Those of you who have been to see a fight in Thailand or have watched one on the internet will notice they often fight a little different to how we do in the west.
To a lot of people this could seem very pointless and in the west could potentially put people off coming to the shows. They have after all paid to see a fight and want to see both parties giving it their all.
However, this isn’t a western sport remember and over the years gambling has played a huge part in how the game is played in Thailand.
More often than not the first two rounds are a feeling out process, so not much really happens. Also on some occasions the boxers are told to take it steady as they are trying to get the betting in the favour of their opponent, making the odds better for themselves.
Round three is generally where the fight will really begin and both boxers are really trying to take the advantage.
The fourth as I’ve always been told is the unofficial money round. If you can win this big then the fight is yours.
Now we come to the round in question.
If the fight has been very close in the third and fourth then the fifth will be fought at the same intensity as the last two rounds.
However, if one boxer is clearly in the lead then he will be told to stay back from his opponent so as to not let the victory slip out of his hands.
This advice will come from his corner and from the gamblers who have money on him to win. This can become very annoying when you’re trying to listen to your corner and you have random people coming up and shouting at you in a language that you barely understand.
His opponent will possibly try and go for him for about the first minute of the round; if he has no success then he will back off.
Often at this point the boxer in the lead will offer his glove to his opponent, asking him to acknowledge defeat.
Here you will usually get the losing boxer accepting defeat and not going for broke to try and change the fight around. While the winning boxer knowing he has won agrees not to beat up on his opponent anymore.
This is a very different mind set to fighters in the west; over here the losing boxer will still fight until the bitter end as a knockout could change everything. Likewise, the winning boxer will still be trying to KO his opponent even though he is already sure of his victory.
To be honest the gambling is slowly killing Muay Thai in Thailand as the gamblers have so much power now in the big stadiums.
If you have watched many of the videos that I have posted up from what is classed as the golden era of Muay Thai (90’s) you will have noticed how packed the stadiums were back then.
Nowadays it is rare that you will see the likes of Lumpinee or Rajadamnern filled to that capacity because of how the game is so heavily influenced.
Out in the provinces though, Muay Thai is still popular with big crowds coming to watch and enjoying the fights. Muay Thai is also growing around the rest of the world with the standard getting better all of the time and so many fighters spending long stints in Thailand.

Khrob Kru Ceremony
STEVEN JOHNS – 8th Khan
Just returned from Chao Phraya Lincoln after attending the Khrob Kru (teacherr) ceremony for Steven Johns. Since our humble beginnings 13 years ago Chao Phraya has only previously awarded 3 Kru grades: Kru Leigh Edlin, Kru James Khan & Kru Samir Hidalgo. The grade is not given away and has to be earned through many years of dedication, loyalty and hard work. So it was a great honour for me to watch the first person who I graded as Kru Leigh Edlin, to be giving his first Kru grading to his student. This is a very personal and significant ceremony between Kru (teacher) and Nak Rian (student). Congratulations Kru Steven Johns you are now a part of Chao Phraya Muay Thai’s heritage.
