In addition to the bouts, the program included numerous cultural activities held over the course of the event. IFMA Youth World Championships followed a historic The World Games 2017 in Wroclaw where “The Art of Eight Limbs” made its debut in July.

The day of the finals took its place on Thursday at Thailand’s National Stadium. The bouts were held in three rings. Boys and girls from 10 to 17 years of age went head to head in their respective weight classes, aspiring to earn Gold for their Nations.

Among results, in the male 54 kg (16-17 years old) class Thai Teerawat Choochanud claimed Gold, winning via a unanimous decision (30-27) against Andrii Mezentsev of Ukraine. In the 60 kg female (14-15 years old) division Australian Shannon Gardiner also took a unanimous decision (30-27) against the representative of the country-host Kanokknan Thawikhun. In the male 71 kg (16-17 years old) category Aleh Likhtarovich of Belarus defeated Berat Cuhadar of Turkey via the second-round TKO. The International Federation of Muaythai Amateur released the complete results on its official website.

The next on the IFMA schedule is the South East Asian Games. The event is held from 24 to 31 August in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
