Jay Z and Beyoncé Attend Muay Thai Fight While in Thailand--Is the Rapper Doing Research? Get the Scoop!

There was a brawl during Jay Z and Beyoncé's holiday trip to Thailand--but it's not what you think.

The rapper took Bey to a Muay Thai fight at the Patong Boxing Stadium in Phuket where the couple sat ringside to watch a few fighters duke it out in the ring. And although it's common to be interested in watching this intense contact sport, there's a chance this was also a business trip for Hov.

"Jay is a huge supporter of the sport. If there is an opportunity for him to attend a match while on vacation, absolutely he'll be there," a source tells E! News. "Could he of been scouting new fighters? Who knows, it's certainly possible. Many of the fighters are not from America, they come from all over the world."

Wait, scouting?!

Yep! One of Jay Z's latest business ventures, Roc Nation Sports, will be making their first step into the world of boxing with the debut of throne boxing on Friday, January 9, 2015 from The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City and will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.

"Boxing has always intrigued Jay. Jay always wants to break ground wherever he can, and he saw a chance to do this with RNS," the source continued. "They are sexifying the boxing experience, changing things up, never before has there been deejays and performers at a match, they're hoping to appeal to a broader audience."

In addition to the great action inside the ring, the January 9 edition of throne boxing will feature several notable Roc Nation names, including hit master DJ Mustard who will serve alongside notable event emcee and "Voice of New York" Angie Martinez throughout the night with recording artist Fabolous taking the stage between fights for a special performance. World famous ring announcer Michael Buffer offers his signature voice to this big night of fights.

Following the pair's vacation to Iceland in honor of the rapper's 45th birthday, the powerhouse couple traveled to Thailand, where they spent Christmas with their 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. 

According to an eyewitness, the couple, who is still on vacation, appears "very much in love" and has been seen hanging out on the beach and relaxing, where they were also photographed frolicking together in the "huge" waves.
