    Kid, what is the heaviest weight for a pro thai boxer? The reason I ask is because going to thailand to train after I get a few years of muay thai under my belt sounds like alot of fun and a great way to improve, but I am currently 200 and could not fight under 170 without cutting off a leg. So I dont want to get there just to fight a janitor

    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    I don't really know. I remember the heaviest weight class at Lumpini was something like 145lbs.

    70kg is pretty much the top of the competitive weight classes in Thailand.

    There are plenty of westerners training in Thailand. I'm pretty sure if you went to a legit camp and worked your arse off, they'd get you a decent match.
