After COVID-19 restrictions brought the fight season to a halt more than five months ago, nine-year-old Thai kickboxer Pornpattara "Tata" Peachaurai is eager to get back in the ring. The money he earns is vital income for his family.
Tata wears a face shield as he stands before his boxing match at a temporary boxing ring in Chachoengsao province, Thailand, Oct. 26, 2020.
The family is banking on Tata's earnings as a way out of poverty and hopes he can make it as a professional Muay Thai fighter, or represent the police or army in the ring and be rewarded with higher ranks and bonuses.
