In 2003, a Burmese video company recording the major Lethwei fights in Yangon assembled some of the knockouts from the various shows they had filmed and put them on a VHS tape for Vincent Giordano. The quality of the video production and the editing were both poor. Still, the video is a record of the time and is entertaining to watch. Here is presented the first 12 minutes of the final 35-minute piece along with some newer additional footage. Look for many earlier fighters like Moe Pae Lay who has since become a top trainer and coach in his own right.
