In an interview with ONE Championship, the Muay Thai phenom defined what occurred, saying:

“There was an issue about timing and the period to make weight and hydration. I often arrive in Singapore 5 days prematurely the place I may concentrate on making weight in time. However final time, I solely had three days previous to the competitors as a result of we had some points that made us delayed for the camp.”

The ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion was changed within the event by a coaching companion of his, Panpayak Jitmuangnon. Panpayak was victorious and can now meet the extremely harmful and expert Superlek Kiatmoo9 within the last spherical of the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix. The bout is booked for ONE 164 on December 3.
