MIDGET BOXING is a entertainment sport where two little people box for 3 minutes. It's now a popular tourist attraction along P. Burgos--the red light district of Makati. My activist and performance artist friend Kristina Wong from LA wanted to experience it as part of her first time in Manila, so we decided to bring her.
Here's a guide on how best to experience Midget Boxing in Manila...
Midget Boxing is located on the hipster and red light district side of Makati, in Brgy. Poblacion.
Alona entertained us while waiting for the midget boxers and ordered ladies drink (P390).
Watch this Midget Boxing video with @MsKristinaWong to see who won the fight!
I must admit, it was an assault to the senses and I wasn't quite sure how to react to the experience.
The midgets don't feel exploited though, and the lady guest relation officers are very friendly. You don't feel hustled into doing or paying for anything without your consent.
Welcome to Manila, Ms. Kristina Wong!
