In the world of combat sports, there is always one match that will serve as the defining moment of a competitor’s career. Rodtang Jitmuangnon, well known by his ring as “The Iron Man,” is currently the holder of the title of ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion.
In the main event of ONE Friday Fights 34, Rodtang is scheduled to defend his ONE Championship gold against Superlek Kiatmoo9, who holds the title of ONE flyweight kickboxing world champion and is currently regarded as the no. 1 contender in the flyweight division of Muay Thai.
The fight is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 22, during primetime in Asia at the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Many people believe that Rodtang and Superlek are the two best strikers on the globe, and now the two of them are going to compete against one another in a head-to-head match for all the marbles. It will be talked about long after they have settled their differences in the ring since it is a clash between different generations.
To put things into perspective, some people are comparing it to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather fight that took place in the realm of Muay Thai.
In an exclusive conversation with Sportskeeda, Rodtang expressed his confidence that he will deliver a performance that will go down in the annals of sports history.
The Iron Man had this to say:
“It is an honor to be spoken of in such a manner. It motivates me to continue honing my talents and being the most effective fighter that I am capable of being. Because I want to make a name for myself in ONE Championship, I put in a lot of effort each and every day.
Not only will the winner of this battle take home the highly desired golden belt, but they will also receive additional prizes. However, they will also get the opportunity to gloat about their victory, which, in a competition of this magnitude, may be of even more significance.
