3 Bouts to Watch at ONE Fists of Fury
The card features six bouts in total, with five insanely stacked ONE Super Series tilts capped off by a meeting for the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship.
Unsure of what to take-in during the card on Friday morning? Do you want a little preview of what’s in-store from “The Lion City”? Here are three bouts you’ll want to make sure to watch at ONE: Fists Of Fury.
Victoria Lee vs. Sunisa Srisen
The focus will assuredly be on the young Lee. With World Champion siblings, the expectations will be extremely high for the Hawaiian, but she is already a two-time Pankration Junior World Champion in her own right.
But Srisen should be slept upon. Already a two-bout veteran of ONE, “Thunderstorm” is coming off a decision victory against Rika “Tiny Doll” Ishige in her last outing. Srisen is hoping to start her own streak and prove she is a threat in the division.
Beyond the intrigue of Lee’s debut, this bout will answer a lot of questions about the young talent that is the future of the atomweight division.
Wondergirl Fairtex vs. Jackie Buntan
There are big names filling this event for ONE Super Series action, which includes Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Giorgio Petrosyan. Still, a sleeper for the best bout of the night is the strawweight meeting between Wondergirl Fairtex and Jackie Buntan.
Wondergirl is 2-0 in ONE with two exceptional performances. She is already on her way to becoming a star. However, the American counterpart could shock the world in her promotional debut.
Boxing Works head coach Bryan Popejoy and ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion Janet “JT” Todd sing her praises. She has been the primary training partner for Todd during her run in ONE and now gets to step onto the global stage herself.
Given their talent and ages, this likely won’t be the only time these two meet in ONE Super Series action. Nevertheless, the first meeting is something everyone should make sure to watch.
Ilias Ennahachi vs. Superlek Kiatmoo9
The main event should be a stellar showcase of kickboxing action as ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Champion Ilias Ennahachi puts it all on the line against Superlek “The Kicking Machine” Kiatmoo9.
Simply speaking, it doesn’t get any better than this in the flyweight division.
The Dutch-Moroccan already stands atop the division, but a win over Superlek will make him an even bigger star in the kickboxing world. And should the Thai legend win, a new era dawns on the flyweight division.
Expect a fast-pace for five full rounds when the bell rings for the main event.
Those are 3 bouts to watch at ONE Fists of Fury.
