Mr. Kraitach Kaewkate – “We think that we are ready to host something bigger in Thailand in the near future”
Mr. Kraitach Kaewkate is not only the key official of the Thailand Boxing Association but he has been working as International Technical Official (ITO) in the Asian competitions. In the boxing world everybody knows him as Kamp who combines the Thai hospitality with his hard working attitude.
The Asian Boxing Confederation asked Mr. Kraitach Kaewkate about the conclusions of the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament and generally about Thailand’s strategic plans and future boxing.
“We tried to do our best in the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament to make the event comfortable for all of our guests, delegations and officials. We hosted the ASBC Asian Confederation Youth Boxing Championships this April and the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament is our second big event in 2018.
We think that we are ready to host something bigger and our team well prepared to make this happen in Bangkok. We all hope in the Thailand Boxing Association that we will have the chance to show our potential in a bigger ASBC or AIBA Championships.
We tried to employ our well-known volunteers who are experienced already in boxing and they are educated strongly how to handle the issues during an event. The Technical Delegate of the event Mr. Keith Walker and the ITOs are our friends, we can rely on them all the time and they are officiated the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament in the highest possible level.
We did not expect better results in the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament our mission were to raise the international experiences of our boxers. In spite of his injury Chatchai Butdee was our best boxer in the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament and he is high hope in the forthcoming Asian Games. Among the foreign boxers personally I think Philippines’ young Carlo Paalam was the best in our event in Bangkok among the foreign boxers.
We hosted already also two national events in 2018 and we will have still two more to come in the upcoming months. We have got long term strategies and fully focusing to the next Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games which is our big target to achieve medals.
We are planning to host the 1st Thailand Open International Women’s Boxing Tournament in the first months of 2019. Following that we are focusing to host the ASBC Asian Confederation Women’s Boxing Championships in Bangkok in August 2019 and we all hope our bidding will be successful.
The qualification system for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is not known yet but our main goal is to host a Qualification event in Thailand. The strategic plans for the next 2024 Olympic cycle are under progress to secure our best future in boxing,” said Mr. Kraitach Kaewkate in the Thailand Open International Boxing Tournament.
