Ahead of his trilogy bout with “The Iron Man,” Petchdam – who is currently the #5-ranked contender – knows this is the biggest opportunity of his professional Muay Thai career to date. He expressed that on a recent social media post.

Furthermore, this is the world championship title that every fighters are willing to get.⠀ ⠀ Me and Rotang used to fight for two times already as you know I beated him and he revenged me back. We both know the strengths and weaknesses very well. ⠀ ⠀ I strongly believe that the fans are looking forward to watching us. Apart from my dancing performance, you will see the excitement of this championship bout for sure.⠀ ⠀ See you ”Ironman” ⠀ ⠀ @pryde.official @petchyindee @onechampionship
