​Main Event: Superlek Kiatmoo9 vs. Danial Williams

Main Event

Superlek Kiatmoo9 vs. Danial Williams

Superlek Winner by Knockout

Superlek Kiatmoo9 made an emphatic statement in his first defense of the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship with a third-round knockout over Danial Williams.

The reigning king started strong with a dominant first round, but Williams came back out in the second to show the Thai superstar he would not go down without a fight. Superlek was in firm control of the bout, but “Mini T” kept marching forward.

The bout would come to an end in the third round when one of “The Kicking Machine’s” head kicks found its mark. Although Williams was able to meet the referee’s count, he was still dazed from the strike. Superlek kept the pressure on and put him down for good with a crushing right hand.

Superlek affirmed his spot as the best flyweight kickboxer in the world and called out Rodtang Jitmuangnon in the post-match interview. That super fight is bound to happen, and Superlek is ready for the challenge in either kickboxing or Muay Thai.
