Nine-year-old Thai kickboxer Pornpattara "Tata" Peachaurai is eager to get back in the ring after coronavirus curbs brought his fight season to a halt more than five months ago.
The money he earns is vital income for his family.
"All the money from boxing, the regular payment and the tips, it all goes to mum," said the lean young fighter.
Sureeporn said boxing was her son's life.
"I'm from the lower class and I just make enough money to survive and don't have savings or fancy homes," she said.
"The future of Tata is in boxing."
