Saturday, September 1st: Rottang Jitmuangnon is the most talked about fighter on the elite Bangkok fight circuit right now: the jewel in the crown of the Jitmuangnon gym stable of fighters has every promoter vying to have ‘The Muay Tank’ fight on their show.
The clear evidence of his star pulling power was on show on last night’s OneSongchai promotion at Bangkok’s famed Rajadamnern stadium as over thousands crammed the stadium to watch the always exciting and unpredictable Rottang in action.
He didn’t disappoint as he put on yet another clinic in ‘Organized Chaos’ against a formidable Chorfaa Saentiennoi — Rottang came away with a hard fought points victory!
The Tank is now on a ten fight winning streak in Thailand having overcome challenges from the Chorfaa, Mongkolkaew Sor Sommai, Rotlek PK Saenchai, Superbank Tded99, Petchdam Petchyindee, Suakim PK Saenchai and Petchnangam.
His hotly anticipated debut on One Championship beckons in Jakarta, Indonesia where he will square off against Dutch fighter Sergio Wielzen on Saturday the 22nd of September.
Rottang Jitmuangnon is one of Thailand’s fastest rising stars in the art of Muay Thai. Nicknamed by some: “The Iron Man,” Rottang is a two-time, and curent Omnoi Stadium Champion. Known for his exciting Muay Mat style, Rottang specializes in delivering powerful striking combinations and is known for his aggression, constantly putting the pressure on his opponents while looking to do damage. With a professional Muay Thai record of 252-40-10, Rodtang makes his ONE Super Series debut against former ONE World Title challenger Sergio Wielzen.
Lion Fight Muay Thai World Lightweight Champion and two-time W5 World Champion, Sergio “Little One” Wielzen of Suriname is a Dutch-based martial artist training out of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. With a professional kickboxing record of 46-19-2 (1 NC), Wielzen has built a reputation as being an explosive striker with stunning knockout power. Despite being physically smaller than most of his opponents, Wielzen has won many of his bouts by knockout. He is also a former It’s Showtime 61MAX World Champion. Wielzen is set to return to ONE Super Series after a failed title bid in his last bout, this time opposite Muay Thai star Rottang Jitmuangnon.
