Tenshin and Takeru will fight in June. We don’t have a date, a venue or even a name for the event but Rodtang Jitmuangnon wasted no time in calling out the winner!
The Thai superstar announced on Instagram that he would be lying in wait for the winner of the biggest kickboxing bout of the year:

Given that Rodtang has an exclusive contract with ONE Championship and a fight with Demetrious Johnson booked this is probably wishful thinking on his behalf. But the Thai fighter has already travelled to Japan to fight Tenshin once, dropping an extremely debatable decision to the Japanese fighter.
He has never shared a ring with Takeru. But Rodtang never turns down a fight, facing the K-1 star under kickboxing rules would be a lot less intimidating then the prospect of facing ‘DJ’ under mixed rules.
While there doesn’t seem to be much prospect of Rodtang’s wish getting granted he will definitely be an interested spectator when Tenshin and Takeru finally do fight.
