ONE Friday Fights 68 will go down on Friday, June 28, and the vacant ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Championship will be on the line. Prajanchai PK Saenchai and Jonathan Di Bella will go for the gold in the five-round title collision. Both men are striving to take home the gold, but only one man will stand atop the mountain as the summer heats up.

Prajanchai vs Di Bella Rescheduled for ONE Friday Fight 68

The match was initially slated for ONE Friday Fights 58. However, Di Bella became ill and did not meet the weight and hydration requirements to compete. He was stripped of the ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Title, and the match was called off.

Prajanchai will get a chance to call himself a two-sport World Champion if he can defeat the Italian-Canadian. The Thai star is riding a four-bout win streak into the match. The PK Saenchai athlete grabbed the Interim ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title and then exacted revenge against Joseph Lasiri to continue his impressive ONE Championship tenure and unify the titles.

Lasiri has looked impeccable in his two outings in ONE. The undefeated talent has shown speed, precision, and never-ending pace with wins over Zhang Peimian and Danial Williams. Prajanchai will be his toughest test to date, but one he accepts with enthusiasm to showcase his skill set to the world.

Prajanchai has already shown what he can do in kickboxing competition. At ONE Friday Fights 34, Prajanchai defeated Akram Hamidi by unanimous decision. The performance showed how well he could acclimate to the larger gloves on the global stage and showed he is just as dangerous.

ONE Friday Fights 68 will take place at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on Friday, June 28. The action will begin at 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT. The event will air live on
