Following the split-decision victory over Jimmy Vienot last week, Petchmorakot has had some words to say.
The Featherweight Muay Thai title bout was close and left many people with split opinions. Ultimately, though, under ONE Championships judging criteria, the knockdown from Petchmorakot is what secured the victory.
After the bout, Petchmorakot admitted it was a close fight but said he was confident the knockdown helped the judges vote. He also added that he’d be open to a rematch (via ONEFC.com).
“Instead of saying anything else, I want to say thank you [to Jimmy Vienot] for the fight. If people say that [they think he won], I’m ready and I’m open for a rematch.”
Petchmorakot also mentioned two other ONE Super Series opponents he’d like to face next. One is Featherweight Muay Thai contender, Tawanchai P.K.Saenchaimuaythaigym. He faces Niclas Larsen this weekend in a Featherweight Muay Thai tilt. Should Tawanchai beat Larsen, he could be next in line for a shot at the champion, Petchmorakot.

However, there’s another name Petchmorakot would be willing to face.
“I think a more entertaining fight for me would be with Superbon. I want to be the best, meaning there are no other contenders. I will beat everybody in the division.”
