There was no shortage of top-notch combat sports action from ONE 158: Tawanchai vs. Larsen. But of the several gems displayed at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last Friday, a couple of stars shined the brightest.
Fifth-ranked featherweight Muay Thai contender Tawanchai PK.Saenchai earned the right to face ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee after knocking out Niclas Larsen in the second round. A jab-cross combination from the Thai sensation proved to be too powerful for his Danish foe.
Meanwhile, #4-ranked bantamweight MMA contender Fabricio Andrade strengthened his case to be the next challenger for ONE Bantamweight World Champion John Lineker. The Brazilian phenom landed a crushing kick to #2-ranked Kwon Won Il‘s body, leaving the South Korean dynamo unable to continue after just 62 seconds.
