Tawanchai Predicts 4-Ounce Gloves Will Give Superbon Edge in Muay Thai Showdown

At ONE Friday Fights 46, Tawanchai PK Saenchai faces off against his biggest threat as the ONE featherweight Muay Thai world champion. The 24-year-old prodigy has been unstoppable in his recent fights, challenging himself by competing in kickboxing. For his return to Muay Thai, he will welcome former kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Mawynn into his division. This isn’t just any crossover – Superbon is the former pound-for-pound number one in the world. While excited for the challenge, he isn’t showing up just for a show. Tawanchai believes that his opponent might be in for a surprise when returning to Muay Thai after achieving incredible things in kickboxing, as the impact force between small gloves and large gloves is very different. ONE Friday Fights 46 will air live and free in Asian primetime via ONE Championship’s YouTube channel and the ONE Super App.

Tawanchai will look to use any advantage at ONE Friday Fights 46

When it comes to the highest level in martial arts, it can come down to a game of inches. Tawanchai is well aware of this and knows about the dangers that an opponent like Superbon brings to the table. He will need to use every advantage if the champion is going to keep hold of his title. If Tawanchai is able to use his recent experience of competing in both Muay Thai and kickboxing to his advantage, you can be sure that he will try to catch Superbon out.
