3 Reasons Why Seksan Is The Most Exciting Star To Emerge From ONE Friday Fights

Seksan Or Kwanmuang Sean Clancy ONE Friday Fights 14 3

In January of this year, ONE Championship began holding weekly fight cards at the historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, showcasing elite martial artists from around the globe live in Asia primetime every Friday.

After 21 thrilling editions of ONE Friday Fights, perhaps no other athlete has made a more impressive mark than legendary Muay Thai star Seksan Or Kwanmuang, who has captivated and enthralled fans over the course of his three appearances at Lumpinee.

This week at ONE Friday Fights 22, the 34-year-old striker will return for his fourth straight fight at the iconic venue when he squares off with British standout Nathan Bendon in a 142-pound catchweight Muay Thai clash that will no doubt produce fireworks.

As we look ahead to another Seksan battle, we dive into three reasons why he just might be the biggest star to come out of the ONE Friday Fights event series.

#1 He’s Undefeated In A Trio Of All-Out Wars

“The Man Who Yields to No One” is a member of the small group of elite fighters who have remained undefeated at ONE Friday Fights, and he seems to be picking up steam with each unforgettable win.

The Or Kwanmuang athlete debuted at the inaugural show – ONE Friday Fights 1 – with a split-decision victory over Tyson “John Wayne Noi” Harrison in an absolute barnburner and early contender for 2023 Muay Thai Fight of the Year.

He followed that up with a crazy firefight and unanimous decision win against Silviu “Hitman” Vitez in March.

In his most recent outing, Seksan earned his first stoppage in ONE after damaging Sean “Clubber” Clancy with a barrage of elbow strikes.

#2 He Never Takes A Step Backward

The four-time Muay Thai World Champion has done plenty in his career to deserve the nickname “The Man Who Yields to No One.” 

Never once showing any fear of wading into his opponent’s line of fire, Seksan’s approach to striking is defined by constant, suffocating forward pressure. That style has made for some wild fights.

Even when he was hurt and dazed in his epic battle with Harrison, the Thai refused to take his foot off the gas pedal and instead plowed forward into his opponent with heavy strikes of his own.

#3 He Owns A Deep Bag Of Tricks

With nearly 200 career victories and a lifetime of training under some of Thailand’s best coaches, it’s no surprise that Seksan possesses one of the most dynamic striking games in all of Muay Thai.

Whether it’s jumping knees, spinning kicks, or flying elbows, the veteran can do it all. What’s even more impressive is that he throws all those unorthodox weapons without a hint of caution.

It’s that diversity of strikes, coupled with his never-ending aggression, that makes him the beloved fan-favorite and ONE superstar he is today.
