Friday, September 24 — Capitan continues his reign as ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing king as he defeats Mehdi Zatout in the co-main event at ONE: REVOLUTION.
The Petchyindee Academy fighter, who defeated former champion Alaverdi Ramazanov to win the title back in February, solidified his spot as the best in the division with a unanimous points win.
After an even first two rounds, Capitan’s power came into effect in the third round.
Zatout showed a strong chin however, as he shook off the affects of Capitan’s punches and ended the round.
With a sense of urgency, Zatout came out with a fast pace in the early part of round four, but to no avail.
As the rounds went on, the paced slowed as both fighters seemingly accepted the result — much like they do in the stadiums in Thailand.
Capitan earned a points win on all three judges scorecards.

Immediately after the bout, Capitan answered questions in a post-fight interview with Mitch Chilson.
When asked if he wants to move back to Muay Thai rules to challenge the current champion Nong-O, Capitan responded saying he wants to remain under Kickboxing rules and defend his title.
