Where did it come from?

Muay Boran was used in wars but also in contests where fighters would wrap their hands in hemp rope. The ropes were meant to both protect the fighter’s hands and cut their opponent open.

In the 1920s-1930s, King Rama VII pushed to modernize this sport and make it more like western boxing. Instead of hemp ropes, fighters wore boxing with gloves. Referees, rounds, and rings were also introduced.
