Referee Bill Seth is the third man inside the ring at Nemesis 11 fight night: Toby Smith v Johane Beausejour on Saturday 21 May in Perth, WA.

Bill Seth, 51, is a high profile Australian referee from Perth, WA. Formerly a fighter, he stepped inside the ring as the person in charge to regulate the contests in 1991. To date his portfolio combines over 500 muaythai encounters featuring dozens of outstanding world championship bouts.

A couple of notable events, Seth has been in charge of, saw the 2010 WKN world title challenges between Australians John Wayne Parr and Nathan Carnage Corbett versus Belarusian Dmitry Valent and Ukranian Pavel Zhuravlev.

Seth is known as a Thai style referee who gets on with the job without being noticed. Darren Curovic, who is credited with helping development of sport in Western Australia, recently outlined Bill Seth as ‘WA’s best Muay Thai referee’.

“I have been involved in Muay Thai since I was 17 years old,” says Seth.

“When I turned 26 I’ve started judging and refereeing at the first real Thai circuit in Perth.”

“I became the head referee for those events and sometimes was in charge of up to 10 out of 12 bouts in one night.”
