Muay-Thai star Rodtang has an incredible rag-to-rich story. The ONE Championship athlete came from humble beginnings and is now one of the most iconic names in Muay-Thai at the moment. Recently, he shared a post on Facebook where he got emotional about how Muay-Thai gave him everything.
“From poor boy, until now, I can buy a house for my parents, buy a house for myself, and have money to take care of my family. I would definitely thank Muay Thai. Without Muay Thai, I wouldn’t be here today,” Rodtang noted.
He further went on to thank his parents for being by his side and supporting him.
“My parents did whatever they could to provide for us children. They would leave in the early hours of the morning and come home late at night. Because they didn’t have stable employment, they would pick up work wherever they could. My dad often worked construction or tapping rubber trees. My mother would wash dishes at funerals, or go out fishing. They would work all day, just to feed us for that night,” he added.
He is set to make his return to the ONE Championship circle soon as he will be competing in the semi-finals of the ONE Championship Flyweight Muay-Thai Grand Prix.
