Before Superlek Kiatmoo9 lands in the United States for a shot at the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Title against Jonathan Haggerty at ONE 168, he will return to Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on Friday, June 28. Superlek will have to hold serve in the flyweight division first. At ONE Friday Fights 68, #1-ranked flyweight contender Superlek battles Kongthoranee Sor Sommai.

It will be a good test for Superlek, as Kongthoranee is surging through ONE Championship‘s flyweight Muay Thai division. The Sor Sommai athlete is on a seven-bout winning streak. It is a matchup that will draw the keen eye of ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon.

Superlek has looked unstoppable over the past two years. He has beaten a who’s who in both Muay Thai and kickboxing, including recent wins over Rodtang and Takeru Segawa. Defending his top-ranked position is just the next challenge on his incredible journey.

For Kongthoranee, it is a chance to prove he belongs among the elite. Knocking off Superlek would send a resounding message to every flyweight in the world. Doing so would also elevate him to the forefront of the title chase.

Superlek’s untouchable aura will be challenged in a potentially star-making opportunity for Kongthoranee. It is a remarkable matchup for the Bangkok crowd in Thailand. The rafters will be shaking with every strike thrown.

ONE Friday Fights 68 airs on Friday, June 28. The action begins at 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT. The event airs live on
