To go with MYANMAR-SPORT-BOXING,FEATURE by Athens Zaw Zaw This photo is taken on December 20, 2015 shows Lethwei martial arts fighter Tun Tun Min in the ring with his opponent, US national Cyrus “Black Dynamite” Washington, at the Thein Phyu boxing stadium in Yangon. A roar erupted at the Yangon ring as the home champion ploughed a right hook into his American opponent’s face, crumpling him to the canvas in the opening round of the bone-crunching kickboxing bout. With head-butts among the array of painful blows permitted, Lethwei pugilists say their sport is the hardiest member of Southeast Asia’s kickboxing family — even more brutal than Thailand’s better known Muay Thai.
