The Thai Rath newspaper reported that Prime Minister Abhisit told the two boxers to maintain their discipline and training as well as to save the money they had earned from their title fights.
Niwat Laosuwannawat, manager and promoter of the two boxers, said Prime Minister Abhisit is well aware of the financial burdens of Thai promoters who want to stage title defenses in Thailand especially since boxing events in the country typically do not charge for tickets.
Thai Rath quoted Niwat as saying the Prime Minister is looking to help promote boxing, which is a sport that has boosted Thailand’s reputation, but he will need to carefully consider how to provide support.
The promoter also said the government should support the major matches in Thailand, such as the expensive title defenses, as Thai boxers are more likely to lose their titles when fighting abroad
