Friday, April 1, 2022: In light of talks with many key stakeholders throughout the world of MuayThai, across all continents where the sport is thriving, the WBC MuayThai has made a careful decision to enter the market of Amateur MuayThai.

This was done to offer a pathway of success and opportunity to aspiring amateur Muaythai athletes across the globe to win coveted WBC MuayThai accolades as not everyone involved in our beautiful sport wants to compete as a professional fighter.

The newly formed WBC Amateur MuayThai program will offer tournament-like events and super-bouts for adults in the sport of MuayThai throughout the more than eighty-four countries and territories the WBC MuayThai is active in — and beyond.

Moreover, we are proud to announce Mr. Max Baggio as chairman of the WBC Amateur MuayThai committee with Hadj Bettahar, Nash Keshwala, Bryan Dobler, and Patrick Riviera as vice-chairmen.

The WBC MuayThai, headquartered in the motherland of MuayThai, established in 2004, under the continued graceful leadership of Police General Kovid Bhakdibhumi, operates with the sole purpose to promote the sport and culture of MuayThai, from Thailand to the world.

A new era has arrived — let us all embrace it.
