According to Superlek, ‘a great performance’ is all that is required of him to ‘eventually’ have a crack at the second belt.

Superlek Kiatmoo9 is not necessarily looking for a crack at ONE gold, but he is confident that he will eventually receive what he deserves if he continues to give enthusiastic performances on the global stage of the promotion. Superlek Kiatmoo9 believes that he will eventually get what he deserves if he continues to perform.

After all, the ONE flyweight kickboxing world champion has had an extraordinary year. He won the vacant kickboxing title before making his debut in ‘the art of eight limbs’ with a stunning finish of Nabil Anane at ONE Friday Fights 22. This victory capped off a year in which he won the ONE flyweight kickboxing world championship.

Only in the year 2023 has he been victorious in all three of his bouts, and he will be competing in the main event of ONE Fight Night 12 on Friday, July 14, in the hopes of extending his winning streak to four straight.

“The Kicking Machine” said that he is not in a rush to pursue two-sport prestige ahead of his main showcase bout against the Russian dynamo Tagir Khalilov.

ONE Championship was informed by Superlek as follows:

“[When it comes to when I would challenge for the belt], I have no idea. I believe that if I keep fighting and put up an outstanding performance. I am going to be able to take the shot in the end.”

Another victory for him the following week in the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, will only bolster his case for a dream showdown against the king of the flyweight division in Muay Thai, Rodtang Jitmuangnon.

However, in recent interviews, Superlek has given the impression that he is not very interested in his countryman’s gold. This comes as a bit of a surprise. Instead, ‘The Kicking Machine’ is targeting a fight for the bantamweight world title held by Jonathan Haggerty.

However, according to the Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, Chatri Sityodtong, a fight between the two Thai megastars will almost certainly take place in some form or another.

On July 14, ONE Fight Night 12 will be streamed live and free of charge for fans in North America who have an active subscription to Amazon Prime Video.
