Superlek returns to muay thai on ONE Friday Fights 22

ONE Friday Fights 22 got a whole lot bigger after another ONE World Champion joined the already stacked card.

ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Champion Superlek “The Kicking Machine” Kiatmoo9 is set to compete that evening against Nabil Anane in a three-round Muay Thai bout at the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on June 23 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Superlek has been on a dominant run this year, having competed twice in the first five months. He started with a hard-earned unanimous decision win over Daniel Puertas before knocking out Danial Williams in the third-round two months later.

He’ll have his hands full against Anane, who brings a 7-inch height advantage to this match, as the 19-year-old stands at 6’2’’ tall.

But it’s not just the physical advantage that Anane has. He’s also a seasoned fighter despite being so young.

Anane trains under Mehdi Zatout at Venum Training Camp in Thailand, and he holds a 33-4-1 record. He became the youngest WBC Muay Thai World Champion in history when he claimed the Featherweight World Title in 2022. He took home his second belt after winning the WBC Lightweight Muay Thai World Title this past February.

The bout was added to an already stacked Friday Fights card that includes the titanic clash between ONE Heavyweight World Champion Arjan “Singh” Bhullar and ONE Interim Heavyweight World Champion Anatoly “Sladkiy” Malykhin.

The match has been prolonged for over a year owing to injuries and broadcast commitments, but now the two behemoths will finally clash to determine the undisputed heavyweight World Championship.

Also on the card is a rematch for the ages when former ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Champions Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and Prajanchai PK. Saenchai clash for the division’s interim strap.
