Combat sports icon Rodtang Jitmuangnon will take on ONE flyweight kickboxing champion, Superlek Kiatmoo9, as he targets multi-sport championship success.

The news of the super fight was announced by ONE president Chatri Sityodtong during a recent live Q&A on Facebook, who revealed the clash will go down on 25th March in Singapore.

Rodtang and Superlek appeared destined to clash in 2022, during the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix. However, Rodtang would be forced to pull out of the Grand Prix due to weight issues. Despite these complications, ‘The Iron Man’ would still have an active year, picking up wins over Joseph Lasiri and Jacob Smith in Muay Thai, as well as facing off against MMA legend Demetrious Johnson, in a highly entertaining custom rules bout.
