The most important thing of my martial arts career is to prove the question from everyone that ”am I good enough of being champion on this Featherweight division?” I would like to be accepted again from everyone that I am the best Muaythai fighter in this division. This, there is no doubt that fighting against the legend Yodsaenklai is the most like to answer the question from everyone. Let's see the answer of defending my title in 4 weeks @petchyindee @onechampionship @pryde.official
In an Instagram post on Monday, 29 June, Petchmorakot noted the challenge Yodsanklai will pose and stated how important it will be to defend his gold against a true legend of the sport.
“I would like to be accepted again from everyone that I am the best Muay Thai fighter in this division,” the reigning king said.
That is certainly the question on everyone’s mind, and this exciting contest will go a long way toward determining both of these athletes’ legacies in The Home Of Martial Arts.
