A curious episode occurred during the tournament level (Burmese Boxing) Lethwei 14 in Japan. Video posted on Twitter account @tokeshikouhei.

The fight was held on October 21 in Tokyo. On the seventh second of the bout, the referee rushed to separate the fighters. The judge stood between the jocks and got hit in the face, then couldn’t stay on his feet. The fight was suspended.

A distinctive feature of Burmese Boxing is the lack of gloves (fighters are limited to bandages), and allowed head shots.
