005: Meet Pracha. He’s been boxing since he was 9 years old. For him, learning about Muay Thai was also learning about how to become a man. Beginners earn maybe 200 or 500 baht (or $6-15) per match. But Pracha, A.K.A. The Hitman, holds the belt of Thailand. Fight fees and prize money, he says, net him on average 500,000 baht (or $15,000) a month.
