WATCH: Muay Thai referee gets KO’d in sensational flooring

Who would want to be a referee?

Usually those who have a particular interest within the sport but are not willing to go through the physical demands of it and/or aren’t skilled enough to take part themselves. And those who love a sense of power.

However, one referee got far more than he bargained for when officiating a Muay Thai boxing match in Thailand, when it became he, not the fighter, that was the recipient of a flush kick to the face.

Gou Dakui and Super X Sitsondidech were the two competitors in the ring, with the former outright dominating the fight, which lead to the referee intervening to bring the fight to a halt for the safety of the latter.

In doing so, he got a little too close to the action as Dakui, still looking for the knockout blow when the referee became involved, shot a devastating kick which inadvertently sent the official to the ground. Watch below to see the shocking moment the referee was sent to the canvas.
