Rodlek PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym took his second chance in the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament and ran with it.
“The Steel Locomotive” defeated “Left Meteorite” Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai by unanimous decision at ONE: A NEW BREED on Friday, 28 August, in Bangkok, Thailand. With the victory, he earned a shot at ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao.
The PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym standout originally lost in the semifinals to Saemapetch Fairtex, but the latter was forced to withdraw from the tournament because of an injury.
Rodlek took the Fairtex athlete’s place in the finals and steamrolled “Left Meteorite,” knocking him down two times over the course of three rounds.
Now, he gets the chance to face compatriot Nong-O sometime down the road, and the bout will make for an interesting clash between raw power and savvy technique.
Rodlek has already proven he could take his opponents’ best shots and dish out his own serving of dominance.
Nong-O, however, has the fight IQ to counter Rodlek’s power. Time and again, he has outsmarted his rivals to remain the division’s king.
But will he be able to withstand the punches of Rodlek? Or will the man from PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym succumb to the ring craft of Nong-O?
