Young Thai turks Rodtang, Petchmorakot rule ONE: No Surrender


If fans learned anything from the featured bouts at ONE: No Surrender on Friday, July 31, in Bangkok, Thailand, it is that the future of Muay Thai in ONE Super Series is certainly secure.

Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy cemented their legacies as World Champions in their respective weight classes in the promotion’s first event in five months.

Rodtang retained his ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Title against Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy in the main event, effectively concluding their trilogy on top.

The 23-year-old was clinical in his approach from the opening bell, putting the heat on “The Baby Shark” and hurting his foe late in the second round.

While the Petchyindee Academy athlete was able to recover his footing, Rodtang simply was just too good as he earned a majority decision.

It was Rodtang’s eighth win in ONE, and the third time he’s defended the strap in the promotion. At only 23 years old, fans could see him ruling the division for a long time.

But “The Iron Man” wasn’t the only World Champion to rule the night.

Petchmorakot etched his name into legendary status after beating “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex to retain the ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title in entertaining fashion.

The 26-year-old Petchyindee Academy star put on a career-defining performance in the co-main event, weathering an early storm from Yodsanklai and displaying excellent counterpunching to frustrate his foe.

Prior to the bout, Petchmorakot made it no secret that a win would catapult him to superstar status – and that is exactly what happened after five rounds of back and forth action.
