/ 03:01 PM July 16, 2020

BANGKOK — The Rajdamnern Boxing Stadium in Bangkok on Wednesday (July 15) reopened for a boxing match for the first time after being shut down in March.

The stadium was in the news after becoming a hotbed of several Covid-19 cluster cases.

Under the new-normal regulations, only 50 spectators were allowed to see each match to prevent overcrowding, and every spectator must pass the thermal scanning checkpoint and wear a face mask. Stadium staff, referee, and seconds must wear both face mask and face shield at all times while boxers are only allowed to take off their masks during the bout.

The match was broadcast via Facebook for fans who could not make it to the stadium.
