Two-time Omnoi Stadium World Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon showed why he is one of the most hyped Muay Thai athletes in the world at ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES.
“Iron Man” dominated two-time W5 World Champion Sergio “Samurai” Wielzen at Indonesia’s Jakarta Convention Center on Saturday, 22 September to earn a lopsided, unanimous decision victory.
Wielzen started this contest strong, chasing his opponent, and barely missing with a blistering roundhouse kick. Before long, however, Rodtang seized control and began walking his foe down.
The Thai warrior unleashed a dizzying array of kicks to his foe’s legs and body, and a slew of punches to his head. One of these punches, a beautifully-timed uppercut, sent Wielzen tumbling to the canvas.
Rodtang then scaled the cage in celebration, but Wielzen got to his feet and answered the standing count, and the bout resumed.
Unfortunately for the Dutch-Surinamese warrior, that meant Rodtang’s devastating assault continued, too.
The second round brought more punishment from the Thai, and though Wielzen managed to keep his head protected, he was repeatedly sent tumbling to the canvas with by his foe’s dumps.
His teeps also regularly sent “Samurai” flying backwards and occasionally onto the ground.
Sensing that he was on his way to losing the bout, Wielzen began the third round by charging forward, attempting to draw Rodtang into a firefight.
While Rodtang briefly obliged this request by trading hooks, he then dumped him on the canvas once again.
Once the action resumed, Rodtang punished his foe with an elbow to the head, before sending him south yet again, this time with a kick.
Rodtang closed the round by punishing his foe’s body with a series of teeps and roundhouse kicks. He also dropped him with another punch, but he was not able to put his foe away.
With this incredibly impressive display of striking dominance, Rodtang improves to a fantastic 253-40-10 in Muay Thai competition and reminds the world why he is considered one of the most fearsome competitors in the sport.
