The first event is set for August 4 in Yangon, Myanmar, following the previous show produced in January. It precedes the organization’s debut in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, which is now penciled for September 18, after the original date of April 3 was postponed due to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“After the historic success in 2019, World Lethwei Championship has successfully driven the sport of lethwei to become the fastest growing sport in the world,” said WLC Chairman Mr Zay Thiha. “This upcoming season will continue our efforts to develop and grow the infrastructure of lethwei globally.”

“We are excited to hold events with our esteemed broadcast and corporate partners in Cambodia, Thailand, Japan, and the United States of America to deliver world-class lethwei content throughout multiple continents.”
