Niclas Larsen Vs. Jo Nattawut Featherweight Muay Thai Match Added To ONE Fight Night 17 On December 8
ONE Fight Night 17: Tawanchai vs. Superbon on Prime Video has added a featherweight Muay Thai showdown that promises action from start to finish.
On December 8 in U.S. primetime, Niclas “Dreamchaser” Larsen will go toe-to-toe with Thai knockout artist “Smokin” Jo Nattawut in a make-or-break fight for both men at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Long regarded as one of Europe’s top kickboxing and Muay Thai talents, Larsen came to ONE in 2022 with no shortage of hype and fanfare.
But things have not gone as planned for the Danish scrapper, who’s suffered defeats to the likes of reigning featherweight Muay Thai king Tawanchai PK Saenchai and former World Title challenger Jimmy Vienot.
Now fighting with his back against the wall, Larsen will put his unorthodox and entertaining style of striking to the test against one of the division’s most feared punchers.
At 34 years old, “Smokin” Jo has accomplished plenty in the world of elite striking – including a WMC Muay Thai World Title and appearances in both ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix tournaments – but he still hopes to make another run at ONE gold.
A veteran of 10 fights in the organization, the decorated Thai has proven to be a fan favorite each time out, electrifying crowds with his aggressive, heavy-hitting approach to combat.
However, Nattawut has suffered three straight defeats against elite superstars – including a tight decision loss to Tawanchai in September – and he’s in a must-win situation to keep his World Title aspirations afloat.
