Parental consent is the only present requirement for child boxers.

"I'm not worried about boxing," said Sureeporn, adding that boxers were trained to protect themselves.

"There are not a lot of injuries in child boxing. I am confident in the system."

But the system doesn't always work.

In 2018, Tata fought in the same tournament where a 13-year-old boy died from a brain hemorrhage after being knocked out in the ring. Sureeporn said the referee had been too slow to intervene.
