‘The Kicking Machine’ Superlek Kiatmoo9, who has the title of ONE flyweight kickboxing world champion, is relieved that his megafight with ‘The Iron Man’ Rodtang Jitmuangnon, who holds the title of ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion, is finally going to take place.
The Thai superstar, who is 27 years old, is delighted to get into the ring with his highly regarded countryman, but he is not the only one who feels this way. Fans from all over the country and the world have been waiting for years for Superlek and Rodtang to finally square off against one another, and now, the highly anticipated bout is only a little over three weeks away from taking place.
In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Superlek discussed his impending fight with Rodtang and revealed his thoughts on the bout.
The Kicking Machine is quoted as saying:
“This is a wonderful match for fans all across the world, including those in Thailand. My guess is that the ONE matchmakers strive to stage the most exciting main events possible, the kind of fights that every fan hopes to witness. A significant amount of time has passed since it was announced that Rodtang and I would be engaging in combat.
At ONE Friday Fights 34, ‘The Kicking Machine’ Superlek Kiatmoo9, who is also the top-ranked contender in the flyweight division of Muay Thai, is scheduled to compete against ‘The Iron Man’ Rodtang Jitmuangnon for the gold medal in the flyweight division of ONE Muay Thai.
On Friday, September 22, during the primetime hours in Asia, the event will be telecast live from the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
The ONE Super App, the official ONE Championship YouTube channel, and a number of other digital platforms will broadcast the event live and for no cost to viewers in the United States and Canada.
If Superlek is successful in this fight, he will join an elite group of athletes who have won the ONE World Championship in more than one discipline. Moreover, he will have the opportunity to win the title of “arguably the best Muay Thai fighter on the planet, pound-for-pound,” which will give him bragging rights.
