Muangthai PKSaenchaigym will take on Yodlekpet Or Atchariya in a catchweight contest at ONE Friday Fights 34. They are both big names on the stadium scene in Thailand but have never crossed paths before.
Muangthai was stopped by Nico Carrillo at ONE Friday Fights 22. He was knocked down three times by the Scot in a loss that snapped his three fight winning streak.
Yodlekpet comes into the contest on a five fight winning steak. He has won four in a row on ONE Championship’s Friday night cards at Lumpinee Stadium and is a former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern champion.
Yodlekpet does damage up close! 💪#ONEFridayFights25

Clash of champions
As previously announced Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Superlek Kiatmoo9 will face off in a Muay Thai fight at ONE Friday Fights 34. The former will be putting his flyweight title on the line at Lumpinee Stadium.
Both men are champions with Rodtang currently holding the Muay Thai title and Superlek the kickboxing belt. The fight has been in the works for nearly a year and will be broadcast live on Channel 7 in Thailand.
It is bound to be a big draw for the Thai fans because Rodtang has won 14 fights out of 14 for ONE Championship, not including his mixed rules bout with Demetrious Johnson. But the promotion has never previously matched him with a Thai opponent.
Superlek has won seven fights in a row since dropping a contentious decision to Ilias Ennahachi in a flyweight kickboxing title fight. He comes into this contest on the back of an extremely impressive run of recent results.
Superlek faced Tagir Khalilov in a Muay Thai fight at ONE Fight Night 12. He stopped the Russian in the second round.
Prior to that he stopped current Bangkok stadium star Nabil Anane with a body shot in the opening round at ONE Friday Fights 22. Superlek hasn’t lost a Muay Thai fight since 2019.
Rodtang stopped Edgar Tavares at ONE Fight Night 12. He admitted afterward that he had barely trained for that bout but faces a much tougher test against Superlek in a match that is bound to attract a big television audience in Thailand.
