    I often watch Max muay thai on Sunday nights. It comes live from the stadium in Pattaya. Sunday night is always a Thai against a farang. Many a time I've seen 15 and 16 year old Thai's fight. Often they have already had over a hundred bouts. Too young and no head protection. It was only a matter of time.

    Some say head protection doesn’t work. So, a logical solution seems to be banning all punches to the head?

    Well if I was facing Mike Tyson and had the choice, I think I'd be putting it on. I'd put two on if they would fit
