ONE: No Surrender is just days away on July 31, and two ONE Championship title tilts stand out atop the card in Bangkok. However, a trilogy bout between two debuting striking stars may be the can't-miss contest of the evening.
Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong and Superbon will bolster the ONE Super Series featherweight kickboxing division on Friday.
In 2016, the Thai striking sensations met twice, with each picking up a victory. Although their star-power has grown since those two meetings, they never met again to finish the series. That all changes at ONE: No Surrender.

Had either man debuted separately, it would have been big news and driven fans to watch their organizational arrival. Pitting them against one another straight away to determine the series and set the winner up for big things makes it all the more compelling to watch.
The bout could put the winner in prime position to challenge for the divisional crown later in the year. More importantly, the two warriors are to settle their score that is deadlocked at 1-1 after two meetings outside of ONE. The featherweight kickboxing division saw Giorgio Petrosyan dominant 2019, and now we could be watching his chief rival in 2020 in this showcase.

Sitthichai and Superbon will announce themselves to the world on the global stage of ONE in their home country and lay the foundation of what is to come. While the two title bouts are exciting, this meeting could quickly become the most talked-about match of the evening.
