Former strawweight title challenger Jackie Buntan will be back in action at ONE Fight Night 20. She has been matched with Martine Michieletto in a Muay Thai fight at Lumpinee Stadium on March 9th.

Buntan has already challenged reigning strawweight champion Smilla Sundell. She was beaten by decision at ONE 165 in 2022 but earned a second shot at the champion after winning her next two fights.

The rematch was set for ONE Fight Night 14 last September but Buntan withdrew from that fight. Instead she finds herself facing an Italian opponent who is coming off a decision win over Amber Kitchen.

At ONE Fight Night 11 she beat the English strawweight by decision. Michieletto’s winning streak dates all the way back to 2017 and she has won her last 15 fights.

Undefeated at atomweight

As previously announced two atomweight title fights have been confirmed for ONE Fight Night 20 Allycia Rodrigues will be defending her Muay Thai title against Cristina Morales while Janet Todd meets Phetjeeja Lukjaoporongtom in a kickboxing unification bout at Lumpinee Stadium.

Rodrigues replaced Buntan at ONE Fight Night 14. She stepped up at late notice and took on the much taller Smilla Sundell but was stopped in the third round although she is undefeated at atomweight since signing with the promotion.

Morales is coming off a first round stoppage win over Supergirl Jaroonsakgym at ONE Fight Night 16. She was stopped by Anissa Meksen in her other fight for ONE Championship.

Unification bout

The other title fight on the card pits regular champion Todd against interim champion Phetjeeja. The Thai fighter won five fights out of five for ONE Championship in 2023.

In her final bout of the year Phetjeeja beat Anissa Meksen at ONE Fight Night 43 to capture the interim atomweight kickboxing title. Todd holds the regular belt but hasn’t won a fight since 2022.

The American was last seen in action at ONE Fight Night 8. She was beaten by Rodrigues and that result cost her the Muay Thai belt, she will be hoping to hang on to her last remaining title next month.
