NewComer Challenge - Muay Thai Thailand

The Punch it Newcomer Challenge

Punchit Internatinal MuayThai Newcomer Challenge 2020

We, Punch it Gym Koh Samui, are the promoter of the international Punch it Newcomer Challenge – in association with Bernard Caplin and CHOK! Magazine, one of the most popular international martial arts magazines worldwide.

Markus & Bernard

Together we have created an international tournament concept for Muaythai newcomers, encompassing 4 to 6 national tournaments in different countries and at different weight classes. Each national tournament winner wins 2 weeks free fightcamp at our gym here on Koh Samui, including hotel room. On top, each winner also gets the opportunity of a paid fight against a professional Thai fighter in the grand finale hier on Samui in November.

Each national tournament is a 4-participant format, our goal is to help develop new young talent around the world. The age range is set from 16 to maximum 21 years old, fighters cannot have fought in Thailand before and must not have more than 10 A-class Muaythai fights upon entry.

Each national tournament is organised by a local promoter, which can also be a federation or a club. Bernard Caplin, an experienced promoter, will assist all local promoters with their organisation, event planning and rules & regulations. The grand final will be at the famous Phetchbuncha Stadium on Koh Samui late November. All finalists will receive a small fight purse in baht for this fight, also special Muaythai clothing & accessories from Punch it.

A country may host a national tournament no more than twice, after which our committee will consider new countries. All applications to host a national tournament in the coming year must be approved by December.
