Two of ONE Championship’s flyweight striking stars are ready to clash in a catchweight main event at ONE: FULL BLAST II, which airs this Friday, 11 June.
Mongkolpetch Petchyindee Academy will meet #4-ranked flyweight Muay Thai contender Elias “The Sniper” Mahmoudi in a ONE Super Series Muay Thai matchup, and both athletes have a lot riding on the line.
Mongkolpetch has been unbeatable during his tenure in ONE Championship, going 3-0 since joining the organization in 2019.
He debuted with a win over Alex “Phet” Serepisos, scored a sophomore victory over Joseph “The Hurricane” Lasiri, and then defeated Kun Khmer Flyweight World Champion Sok Thy at ONE: NO SURRENDER III.
Mongkolpetch will look to make Mahmoudi number four, but beyond that, he’s hoping to use this fight as a stepping stone to the division’s reigning king – ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon.
A win for Mongkolpetch over #4-ranked Mahmoudi would certainly further his case for a ONE World Title shot. But the same could be said for “The Sniper.”
Mahmoudi last competed in the Circle against Muay Thai legend Lerdsila Phuket Top Team. He put on a spectacular showing to defeat the Thai by unanimous decision.
And unlike Mongkolpetch, Mahmoudi has competed for a ONE World Title. He challenged Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy for the inaugural ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship at ONE: WARRIORS OF LIGHT but came up short.
The French-Algerian is undoubtedly looking for a second shot at greatness, and a win over Mongkolpetch this Friday would help him get there.
