Sham Seetaram, President of the Indian Ocean Federation stated that everything is now in preparation for the upcoming World Championship in Malaysia. Combined coordination meetings between the Mauritius and Madagascar Muaythai Federation are being organised in order to build up for the event.

President Sham Seetaram said that it is important for the smaller countries in the region to work closely together because the Muaythai power houses such as Russia, Thailand, France, Sweden or Australia will be sending large teams. Smaller countries would become more competitive if they combine forces.

Muaythai in the Indian Ocean region will continue to grow especially with important work made in the youth development.
