Another  fight has been added to the ONE Fight Night 13 card. Tawanchai PKSaenchaigym will be competing in kickboxing for the first time when he faces Davit Kiria at Lumpinee Stadium on August 4th.

Tawanchai has won five out of six for ONE Championship. The only blemish on his recent record was a split decision loss to Sittichai Sitsongpeenong back in 2021.

He defeated Petchmorakot Petchyindee to win the featherweight Muay Thai title. Tawanchai followed that up with a KO win over Jamal Jusopov at ONE Fight Night 7.

Decision losses

Kiria only has one win from his four ONE Championship fights. But the Georgian returned to the regional scene in Europe and scored back to back victories there.

He stopped Enriko Kehl in the quarter finals of the featherweight kickboxing Grand Prix in 2021. But fights with Giorgio Petrosyan, Sittichai Sitsongpeenong and Mohammed Boutasaa have all ended in decision losses for the 35 year old.

Featherweight title

As previously announced Chingiz Allazov and Marat Grigorian will meet for the third time at ONE Fight Night 13. The latter will be making the first defence of the featherweight kickboxing belt he snatched from Superbon Banchamek on August 4th.

Allazov is riding a four fight winning streak that saw him earn a title shot by winning the featherweight Grand Prix. At ONE Fight Night 6 in January he knocked out Superbon in the second round to silence the fans in Bangkok and win a second belt.

Grigorian has won seven out of his last eight. The only defeat during this period came at the hands of Superbon who was on one of the most impressive winning streaks in kickboxing history at the time.

Previous meetings

Grigorian was scheduled to face Allazov in the semi final of the kickboxing Grand Prix but was forced to withdraw from that fight after contracting Covid-19. The men met twice during their time fighting for Glory.

The first fight ended in a no contest after Grigorian inadvertently cut Allazov with his elbow. An immediate rematch was ordered and this time the Armenian took the decision win but these fights took place a decade ago.

ONE Championship has attracted the best kickboxers in the world to compete in its stacked featherweight division. Superbon knocked out Giorgio Petrosyan to win the title and was seen as unstoppable but saw his momentum  abruptly halted by Allazov.

Long awaited

The long awaited fight between Marcus Almeida and Oumar Kane will also take place on August 4th. The two heavyweights have been booked to face off for the third time at ONE Fight Night 13 with the previous two bouts falling through.

The fight could well turn out to be a title eliminator. Interim champion Anatoly Malykhin and regular champion Arjan Bhullar are set to face off in a unification bout at ONE Friday Fights 22 next month.

The winner of the fight between Almeida and Kane will be in pole position for a shot at the winner. Both are on winning streaks but it is the Brazilian who has really taken the heavyweight division by storm.

Almeida has finished every single opponent he has ever faced, either by ground or pound or submission. The Brazilian only made his debut in 2021 but has seen five different matches fall through, including two with Kane.

Kane is coming off back to back wins over opponents who were previously undefeated. He has won four out of his five ONE Championship fights.
