Reigning Lumpinee welterweight champion Rafi Bohic has put pen to paper on a ONE Championship contract. The Frenchman has established himself as one of the best foreign fighters to ever compete in the Bangkok Stadiums.
Bohic, who fights out of the famous Sing Patong camp in Phuket, is regarded as the top welterweight in Thailand today. He has held the Lumpinee 147lbs title for nearly two years, seeing off the challenge of several top ranked Thai opponents.
Bohic has successfully defended the title four times beating the likes of Manachai YokkaoGym and Pongsiri PKSaenchaigym. He has also held titles with WBC and WMC titles and won a Max Muay Thai tournament in 2014.
ONE Championship recently launched a featherweight kickboxing Grand Prix for fighters who weigh 155lbs or less while hydrated. If the Frenchman decides this is the right division for him then matchups with Yodsanklai Fairtex or Giorgio Petrosyan could be on the horizon.
Last night at ONE: ‘Warriors of Light’ several former Lumpinee champions were in action. Nong-O Gaiyanghadao defended his bantamweight Muay Thai title, Petchdam Gaiyanghadao won the flyweight kickboxing title and Superlek Kiatmoo9 scored his second ONE Super Series win.
