ONE 163: Akimoto vs. Petchtanong delivered action from start to finish inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium this past Saturday, November 19.

In the headliner, Petchtanong Petchfergus dethroned Hiroki Akimoto for the latter’s illustrious ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title.

Throughout five hard-fought rounds, Petchtanong used his step-in knees to narrowly defeat Akimoto via split decision. The achievement was the crowning jewel in Petchtanong’s illustrious striking career that spans over 400 fights.
