According to TWINS, the leading exporter of Thai boxing gear for the past 60 years, the ring regulations of a professional match setting are as follows: A ring must be square in shape and the ropes must measure between 20x20 feet to 24x24 feet. The floor must be between 4 - 5 feet tall and padded in a rubber type cushioning that has a thickness of 1 - 1.5 inches.

Fighters began wearing gloves in competition and training around the year 1956, when Lumpinee Boxing Stadium first opened in Bangkok.

After the occurrence of a death in the ring, it was decided that all fighters should wear gloves and cotton coverlets over the feet and ankles.
