A video of a Bangkok man kicked by a woman who turned out to be a Muay Thai boxer has gone viral on the internet.
In the video, a 24-year-old Pareploy Saeaia can be seen kicking and shoving the perpetrator,. In the clip, Pareploy can be seen in a wet dress after the man poured the beer over her because she refused to have a drink with him.
The boxer has since shared the clip on her own Facebook page.
“If this happens to other women, they might choose not to respond. The guy’s choosing the wrong person because I’m a boxer.”
According to a Bangkok Post report, the woman was having dinner with friends at a food outlet in the Huai Kwang district of the capital when the man approached her and asked her to clink glasses. She refused and the man returned 5 minutes later, pouring beer over her as she ate her meal.
Pareploy can then be seen following him out into the street, where she proceeds to aim punches and kicks at him.
According to the report, the man did not fight back but didn’t apologise either.
On Tuesday, the two reported to the police station. They settled the case by apologising and paying a 1,000-baht fine each.
According to media reports, the woman became a professional muay Thai boxer at a young age and had fought in 50 bouts – 40 wins and 10 losses. Since 2013, she had won several medals at the national level.
She currently works as a trainer.
