Following the conclusion of his most recent victory, Prajanchai PK Saenchai immediately went back to work after knowing that he would have the chance to recapture the ONE world title that he had previously lost more than a year ago.
The veteran, who had a total of 341 victories, handed over the ONE strawweight Muay Thai world championship to Joseph Lasiri in the month of May 2022. At ONE Friday Fights 46, which will take place on Friday, December 22, he will have the opportunity to reclaim his title from “The Hurricane,” as the two striking marvels are scheduled to compete against each other.
After earning his opportunity earlier this year with consecutive victories over Kompet Fairtex and Sam-A Gaiyanghadao, Prajanchai disclosed that he immediately returned to the gym in order to get himself ready for another fight with Joseph Lasiri.
He told ONE Championship, “Going back to the fight when I beat Kompet in ONE Friday Fights… after I won, it was announced that I would have a shot for gold against Joseph Lasiri.” This fight included a bout in which he defeated Kompet. “I only rested for seven days after hearing the news, and then I immediately restarted my training camp,” the athlete said.
Joseph Lasiri goes from winless to world champion
For Joseph Lasiri, the victory over Prajanchai at ONE 157 was the pinnacle of an incredible comeback in his professional career. “The Hurricane,” who made his debut in the professional world in 2019, was defeated by opponents such as Jonathan Haggerty and Mongkolpetch in a string of four consecutive fights that took place within the Circle.
The year 2020 marked the beginning of Lasiri’s turnaround, which began with a victory over Rocky Ogden via split decision. After that, he earned his first opportunity to compete for ONE gold by knocking out Asahi Shinagawa in the first round, which was an amazing performance. With a knockout victory in the third round against Prajanchai, Lasiri moved from being winless to being the world champion in just over a year and a half.
Is it possible that Lasiri will continue his remarkable run in the strawweight class, or will the Thai superstar recover and recapture the title?
