One of the biggest Thingyan 2013 boxing events in Kayin State, a 3-day long so-called "Flag Tournament" (Louvi Lala Pue), took place near Eindu Village on the road no. 85 from Hpa An to Myawaddy (Mae Sot / Thai border).
The video shows parts of three extremely exiting and fast-paced bouts. In the first sequence, one of the fighters does not even wear handwraps - full contact with pure bare knuckles!
The third part shows the fierce battle of another Cement Factory Gym's Boxer and his taller, outranging opponent. Though the Cement Factory Boxer already hits the canvas after a heavy knockout in the middle of round two, he comes back into the fight after a refreshment-timeout demanded by his cornermen.
This kind of extra intermissions is another particularity of Burmese Boxing Tournament Rules and as one can see, the round is continued after the break for its last remaining minute. The taller boxer finally wins the fight by a second K.O. in round three.
Another characteristic feature of Burmese Boxing is the fight-accompanying music called Sayensia. Here in this tournament, the traditional orchestra was enhanced by a female singer and a guitar player, performing modern-style Burmese pop songs during the intermissions, as one can see and hear in the beginning of the video.
