The Thai has indicated that he is now hoping to fight on for the next 2 years or so whilst continuing in the "amateur" ranks where he will chase success on the Asian scene.
The former professional world champion has indicated that he will be taking time away from the ring to allow his injuries to heal before attempting to compete at the 2017 South East Asian games. That is one of two tournaments that Amnat is aiming to compete at, along with the 2018 Asian Games, after which he will retire at the age of 39.
Of course whether or not Amnat achieves his dreams of competing for the next 2 years, or even making it to the competitions that he's targeting.
According to quotes in the Thai press Amnat's family did want him to retire from the sport however he feels that he still has the ability to have success again in the sport.
