Tawanchai, one of Muay Thai's standout stars, will make his second ONE Featherweight Muay Thai title defense against Superbon, the world's second best kickboxer on December 8 at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Although the pair was originally scheduled to face each other on October 6, Superbon was forced to withdraw from the bout with a calf injury and was replaced by Jo Nattawut, who faced Tawanchai in a kickboxing fight that a number of fans felt could've gone his way.
One shaky performance aside, Tawanchai will be back on familiar ground for his third championship appearance, where he'll be able to make full use of both the clinch and his elbows. Superbon on the other hand will make his return to the sport of Muay Thai following a four-year absence, so it will be interesting to see how he'll adjust his arsenal and approach.
Aside from adding another great name to their legacies, both will likely see this contest as a great opportunity to set up a fight with reigning ONE Featherweight Kickboxing champion Chingiz Allazov in the near future.
