ONE: "Warrior Kingdom" is set for the Impact Arena in Bangkok next week and there will be no fewer than seven Thai fighters on the card. The March 11th event will feature Shannon Wiratchai, Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke, Kritsada Kongsrichai, Pongsiri Mitsatit, Rika Ishige, Saketdao Petpayathai and Yodsanan Sityodtong.
It's a diverse array of local talent ranging from proven champions such as Dejdamrong, Yodsanan and Saketdao to up-and-coming newcomers like Rika Ishige. The latter will be making her pro debut and she also happens to be the long term girlfriend of Shannon Wiratchai, who is competing in the co-main event.
Wiratchai (6-1) will be looking to cement his status as a top contender in the lightweight division and move a step closer to a title shot with a win over promotional newcomer Richard Corminal (4-1). Meanwhile, Ishige will be hoping to get her MMA career off to the best possible start against Audreylaura Boniface (0-1).
Former strawweight champion Dejdamrong (6-1) suffered the first loss of his entire career at ONE Championship's inaugural Bangkok show. He will be hoping to get back to winning ways when he takes on former title challenger Joshua Pacio (8-1).
There will also be two famous fighters from other combat disciplines in action with former boxing world champion Yodsanan Sityodtong (2-1) taking on Ramon Gonzalez (1-1). Meanwhile, Saketdao Phetpayathai, who has held titles at both Lumpinee and Rajadamnern, makes his MMA debut against Kelvin Ong (0-1).
One of the promotion's top strawweight prospects returns to the cage when Mitsatit (7-0) takes on Rabin Catalan (4-2). With him, Pacio and Dejdamrong all in action on the same night we could well see the identity of the next challenger to reigning champion Yoshitaka Naito determined in Bangkok.
Kritsada Kongsrichai (4-3) completes the Thai contingent and is set to face Adrian Matheis (2-1). As previously announced, the card will be headlined by an atomweight title bout between reigning champion Angela Lee and undefeated challenger Jenny Huang.
The show is set for March 11th and will be shown live on TV in Thailand. The PPV can be purchased for $9.99 USD from here.
