In the process, Prajanchai will be challenging for Sam-A’s ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title.
Along with ONE Championship gold, the Thai phenom will have even more on the line in this pivotal main event.
Prajanchai competes out of the esteemed PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym camp in Bangkok, Thailand.
The gym has a handful of its top athletes fighting in ONE Championship, including former ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Title challenger “The Steel Locomotive” Rodlek and former ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title contender Pongsiri.
Although two of Prajanchai’s teammates battled for ONE World Championship gold, they both came up short in their quests for greatness. That means the next challenger could become the first PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym representative to climb the ONE Super Series mountain.
Not only would Prajanchai further his gym’s legacy by beating Sam-A, but he would also continue his own.
Storied Muay Thai Career
Prajanchai has been competing for nearly two decades in Muay Thai, and he’s fought against elite athletes in the most esteemed promotions and stadiums in Thailand. In fact, he’s won Muay Thai World Championships in many of them.
In 2012, he became the Rajadamnern Stadium 112-pound champion. That same year, he won the S-1 112-pound Championship. Two years later, he competed for the 118-pound Lumpinee Stadium World Championship and won that. And six years after that, he claimed the 122-pound Lumpinee Stadium World Championship.
