“Gonna be lit,” says Nabil Anane as he prepares for a contest that might define his career versus Superlek.

When Nabil Anane makes his debut at ONE Friday Fights 22 on June 23, he may be plunged into a baptism of fire, but the Algerian athlete looks completely unfazed before he tangos with Superlek Kiatmoo9, who is the world champion in the flyweight division of ONE kickboxing.

This week in the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, a flyweight Muay Thai battle between a teenage wonder from Algeria and a striking dynamo has already begun to stir attention.

During the official face-offs that took place on Thursday, June 22, everyone’s attention was drawn to his 6-foot-2 frame in comparison to Superlek’s height of 5-foot-7. The reasons for this are evident.

It is unknown, however, how he plans to make use of such a big edge when competing against a man with Superlek’s level of experience.

A recent post that the 19-year-old competitor made on Instagram indicates that he is more than willing to challenge his opponent to the absolute limit.

Nabil Anane captioned a picture that he posted on Instagram of himself and Superlek as follows:

“We’re going to have a good time; see you all tomorrow!”

With 33 victories and only four losses on his professional record, the young man comes up for his biggest challenge to date, knowing that a win might put him up on a swift rise in the talent-filled flyweight Muay Thai division. His professional record currently stands at 33 wins and only four losses.

Superlek, on the other hand, has made it clear to fans on a consistent basis that he is among the most vicious strikers in the world today. In addition to that, he plans to utilize his bout against Nabil Anane as another bargaining chip in order to move closer to a potential opportunity to challenge Rodtang Jitmuangnon for the flyweight Muay Thai title.

On fight night, there can be only one victor, so make sure you don’t miss this fight as it takes place at ONE Friday Fights 22 on June 23. The event will be broadcasted live and for free on the official ONE Championship channel on YouTube.
