SURIN : An inexperienced, middle-aged Thai boxer and father-of-two has died after collapsing in a fight for which he was set to be paid just 400 baht.

Forty-eight-year-old farmer Songtham Stipa, agreed to the fight as he struggled to meet the expenses of his daughters’ education and care for his wife’s elderly parents and disabled brother.

“My father is not a serious boxer, but he dared to box for just 400 baht,” said Songtham’s 13-year-old daughter Sidaporn Stipa, as she fought back tears.

Songtham had boxed just two times previously.
