ONE 167 continues to get loaded with amazing action. On Wednesday, ONE Championship announced the addition of “The Iron Man.” Rodtang Jitmuangnon returns to battle Denis Puric in a flyweight kickboxing battle on Friday, June 7, from Bangkok, Thailand.

Rodtang has not been back in action since his narrow decision loss to Superlek Kiatmoo9 in 2023. The Thai athlete’s return was supposed to happen in January against Takeru Segawa, but an injury forced him out of the main event slot. However, he is healthy and ready to return as he continues to chase two-sport gold.

But Puric will not be waiting to be another victim of the Thai star’s incredible talent. “The Bosnian Menace” is enjoying back-to-back wins over Nguyen Tran Duy Nhat and Jacob Smith. As he begins to roll, Puric has been eyeing his dream match against Rodtang.

Getting the opportunity against his dream opponent will make Puric train even harder for the match. Rodtang getting a motivated and surging Puric will ensure that he returns against another elite opponent. The kickboxing war will help build ONE 167 into one of the year’s best events.

ONE 167 is loaded with talent. Stamp Fairtex headlines the evening against Denice Zamboanga for the ONE Atomweight MMA World Championship. Tawanchai PK Saenchai defends the ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title against “Smokin” Jo Nattawut in the co-main event. Also in action, Mikey Musumeci, Johan Ghazali, Liam Harrison, and Kade Ruotolo return to the loaded lineup.
