Tawanchai To Face Saemapetch At ONE: BATTLEGROUND III

Two of the greatest Muay Thai fighters in the World are set to collide for a mega Bantamweight match-up on ONE Championship next month.

After a successful ONE Championship debut with a huge headkick knockout of Irishman Sean Clancy, Tawanchai is set to make his second appearance in ONE Super Series when he takes on fellow-Thai, Saemapetch Fairtex at ONE: BATTLEGROUND III.

The pair will clash in a meteoric Bantamweight Muay Thai bout, set to air on the pre-recorded event on 27th August 2021.

Saemapetch will be well known to ONE Championship fans. The Fairtex star is the current #1 challenger in the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai rankings.

Having lost a title challenge to current champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao in 2020, Saemapetch has since disposed of both Rodlek and Kulabdam to put himself back in the title picture.

His next opponent, however, is known as one of the greatest pound-for-pound Muay Thai fighters in the World.

Despite only a single appearance in ONE Championship, Tawanchai is better known to Muay Thai purists for his achievements on the elite Muay Thai scene in Thailand over the years.

Prior to his ONE Championship debut, Tawanchai registered huge victories over Sangmanee and Nuenglanlek Jitmuangnon in 2020.
