Tawanchai PK Saenchai, the reigning ONE featherweight Muay Thai world champion, has the capacity to walk through fire and incredible pain without even flinching, which is one of the hallmarks of a great fighter. Saenchai has this talent down to a science, and it’s one of the reasons he’s been so successful.
The 24-year-old Thai megastar is able to take the most devastating blows from any opponent and take them on the chin without ever retreating one inch. The same thing happened in Tawanchai’s most recent battle, which was against the Georgian kickboxing veteran Davit Kiria.
At ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian on Prime Video last Friday night in Bangkok, the Thai mauler Tawanchai competed against the American fighter Kiria. Tawanchai won through technical knockout after breaking Kiria’s arm with a powerful kick.
Tawanchai discussed walking through Kiria’s attacks and not indicating if he was wounded or not when speaking to the media during the official post-event interviews for ONE Fight Night 13, which took place immediately after the event.
The young man, who was 24, stated:
“It’s not really a secret, and I have no plans to make a purpose out of it or anything else,” she said. It looks exactly like my face when I’m fighting hard and concentrating.
If Tawanchai faces another challenger, will he be able to carry this off successfully? That is the question that needs to be answered.
At ONE Fight Night 15 in October, Tawanchai will defend his ONE featherweight Muay Thai world title against Thai countryman and former ONE featherweight kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Mawynn. Tawanchai will return to the ‘art of eight limbs’ when he competes.
The historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok was the location of ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which was broadcast live on Prime Video.
