ONE Championship is set to close out the ‘A NEW BREED’ event series on Friday, 18 September with ONE: A NEW BREED III. In the main event, ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy will defend his title against Lion Fight World Champion Magnus “Crazy Viking” Andersson.
The Petchyindee Academy star, who owns an astonishing professional record of 161-35-2 (1 NC), won the inaugural ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Championship in February by dominating Pongsiri PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym by a clear-cut unanimous decision. Then in July at ONE: NO SURRENDER, he went toe-to-toe with “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex and defeated him by majority decision.
Lion Fight World Champion Magnus “Crazy Viking” Andersson from Sweden eventually relocated to Thailand to develop his skills at Revolution Muay Thai Phuket camp. The fighter has compiled a 41-11 professional record and in August 2019, he knocked out Petchsanguan Sor. Thanasit to become the Lion Fight Super-Welterweight World Champion.
The Revolution standout will enter this contest with massive knockout power and 4-centimeter height advantage, making him the tallest opponent Petchmorakot has ever faced in ONE Super Series.
This five-bout card also features four other martial arts World Champions and a slew of big names who’ve combined for well over 1,000 victories in Muay Thai, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts competition.
ONE: A NEW BREED III will feature the debut of three-time Muay Thai World Champion Capitan Petchyindee Academy, as well as the returns of Thai superstar Rika “Tiny Doll” Ishige and six-time Muay Thai World Champion Yodpanomrung “The Lightning Knee” Jitmuangnon.
