Another title fight has found its way onto the ONE Friday Fights 58 card. Jonathan Di Bella will be defending his strawweight belt against Prajanchai PKSaenchaigym at Lumpinee Stadium on April 5th.

De Bella will be making the second defence of the title he won in 2022. This will be the first time in the Canadian’s career that he has faced a Thai opponent.

Prajanchai is the reigning strawweight Muay Thai champion. He won the belt for the second time by beating Joseph Lasiri at ONE Friday Fights 46 last December.

Three fights

Three fights have been confirmed so far for the event at Lumpinee Stadium and they are all big ones. There are two kickboxing title fights currently on the card.

Superbon Banchamek will be looking to win the interim featherweight title when he faces Marat Grigorian for the third time. Both men share a win apiece from the previous two meetings

Chingiz Allazov, who won the belt by knocking out Superbon, is reportedly taking a break. Grigorian has challenged for the regular belt twice before while his opponent held the title for just over a year.

Contrasting trajectories

Two top Thai fighters whose careers appear to be heading in opposing directions will go head to head in a  fight that has plenty at stake even if there isn’t a belt on the line. Former ONE Championship bantamweight king Nong-O Gaiyanghadao has been matched with Kulabdam Sor Jor Piek U-Thai.

Nong-O is coming off two stoppage losses. Another damaging defeat could potentially end the career of the 37 year old who held multiple titles at Lumpinee and Rajadamnern and was one of the best fighters of his generation.

Kulabdam is 12 years younger and is coming off four straight wins on the ONE Championship Friday night events. A victory over Nong-O would surely earn the former Lumpinee champion a multi fight contract with the promotion.
