As a direct result of the overwhelming success of ONE Friday Fights, the illustrious Lumpinee Stadium, which is located in Bangkok, is at long last receiving the global respect it so justly deserves.
The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ONE, Chatri Sityodtong, has made it his personal mission to bring “The Art of Eight Limbs” back to its former grandeur by means of the promotion’s weekly shows, which have genuinely surpassed all expectations.
Sityodtong beamed with pleasure after the continuing success of ONE Friday Fights and after exposing the ‘The Mecca of Muay Thai’ to ONE’s worldwide audience in a recent interview with The South China Morning Post:
“I see ONE Friday Fights happening out of Lumpinee again for a very very long time,” said the commentator. But, once again, we’re adding fights, and this year was the chapter of resurrecting Muay Thai, exposing Muay Thai to the globe on the global stage at a high frequency with the world’s very finest Muay Thai strikers on the planet. “This year was the chapter of reviving Muay Thai.”
The following is the complete interview:
One of the most well-known forms of martial art in the world today is actually Thailand’s national sport, which is considered to be one of the oldest forms of the sport. However, in recent years, an excessive amount of gambling has tainted Muay Thai’s legacy, which has led to a decline in the sport’s reputation.
Sityodtong, who has practiced martial arts for his whole life, decided that he could not stand by quietly while the sport that he has devoted his life to and is very passionate about was being destroyed.
Muay Thai’s prominence has been restored in a significant way thanks to ONE Friday Fights, and we can anticipate even more impressive competitions in the years to come.
In point of fact, the battle that has been anticipated by fans the most in the annals of Muay Thai is set to take place this coming Friday, September 22, at ONE Friday Fights 34: Rodtang vs. Superlek.
In what is perhaps the most important fight in the history of Muay Thai, Rodtang Jitmuangnon will defend his ONE flyweight Muay Thai world title against his close buddy and fellow pound-for-pound great Superlek Kiatmoo9. This bout will take place in Bangkok, Thailand.
The ONE Super App, the official ONE Championship YouTube account, and a number of other digital platforms are all places where you may watch ONE Friday Fights.
