One of Thailand’s most entertaining martial artists will star at home in the main event of ONE: DREAMS OF GOLD.
On Friday, 16 August, “The Baby Shark” Petchdam Petchyindee Academy will make the first defense of the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title and attempt to notch his 95th professional win inside the Impact Arena in Bangkok.
His opponent will be a new face in ONE Super Series – Ilias Ennahachi.
The Dutch-Moroccan may not have experience on the global stage for martial arts, but his kickboxing résumé is highly impressive. It includes six World Titles, as well as his dazzling 34-3 professional record.

On the other side of the bracket, France’s Samy “AK47” Sana – the man who beat Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex in the quarterfinals at ONE: ENTER THE DRAGON in May – will meet Russia’s Dzhabar “Genghis Khan” Askerov, who got past Enriko Kehl in a thrilling match at the same event.

The marquee match-ups do not stop there, however, as one of Thailand’s favorite daughters will begin her quest to win ONE World Titles in three sports.
Before Stamp Fairtex became the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Champion, she made her mixed martial arts debut on Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series with a 19-second knockout.
On 16 August, she will return to the sport to face a more experienced opponent – Asha “Knockout Queen” Roka. The Indian athlete will make her debut in The Home Of Martial Arts on the back of a perfect 4-0 record she built in her homeland.
Those bouts will be joined by many more on the undercard, including a collection of top-class ONE Super Series Muay Thai contests that should thrill fans in the birthplace of “the art of eight limbs.”
