One of the major promotional outfits in Thailand is the "Diamond" promotion. Sadly their main man, Virat Vachirarattanawong [วิรัตน์ วชิรรัตนวงศ์] the head of the promotional outfit, is currently in hospital following a fall earlier this week at the Rajadamnern Boxing Stadium.
The fall left the promoter with a suspect broken ankle, though it's been diagnosed as a less serious but still painful injury, and the promoter was taken to hospital for treatment.
The treatment has been a success and and the 70 year old is expected to be back on his feet in the near future.
The WBC, who's champion Wanheng Menayothin is promoter by Diamond Promotions, sent their wishes to the fighter sending him a small basket and a letter showing concern to the veteran promoter, who has worked in boxing and muay thai for more than 30 years.
