On Saturday the 22nd of September ONE Championship welcomes two more massive Muay Thai icons to the ONE Super Series stage as Rottang Jitmuangnon and Yodpanomrung ang Jitmuangnon may be very young, but he’s extremely experienced in terms of martial arts.
Known as “The Iron Man,” Rottang will be bringing with him a remarkable 252-40-10 professional Muay Thai record, which includes two reigns as an Omnoi Stadium Muay Thai Champion.
Rottang will be coming into the heavily-acclaimed ONE Super Series, eager to bounce back after a close and controversial loss to Japanese kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa this past June.
Proudly representing the famed Jitmuangnon Gym in Bangkok, Rottang makes his long-awaited ONE Championship appearance against two-time W5 World Champion Sergio “Samurai” Weilzen in a ONE Super Series Flyweight Muay Thai showdown.
“I am honored to be part of this world-class martial arts organization,” Rottang conveyed. “With ONE Championship opening its doors for other martial artists like me to join and showcase our talent on a global stage, it means a lot to me as an athlete. This is a new challenge, and I love challenges.”
“I’m really excited to make my debut in Jakarta against a tough martial artist such as Sergio Wielzen,” he said of his opponent. “Sergio is a decorated champion, and I’m sure he will bring out the best in me as I will with him.”
Also making his ONE Super Series debut in Jakarta is Rottang’s teammate Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnon.
The 24-year old Yodpanomrung is also coming in with a ton of experience in Muay Thai, having an impressive six world title reigns on his resume, including the WMC and WPMF World Championships.
The owner of an outstanding 230-68-2 professional record, the man known as “The Lightning Knee” is hailed as one of the top pound-for-pound Muay Thai practitioners in the sport today.
Yodpanomrung will be welcomed into the promotion by three-time MAX Muay Thai World Champion “The Funky Drummer” Fabrice Fairtex Delannon as the two will meet in a ONE Super Series Bantamweight Muay Thai bout.
“I am happy to be part of the growing ONE Championship family. I would also like to thank everyone who made this possible,” Yodpanomrung expressed. “I can't wait to have my promotional debut and exhibit what I am capable of doing.”
“My debut bout against Fabrice Delannon is sure to be an exciting one. We are both high-level Muay Thai practitioners, and we will definitely give the fans in Jakarta a show,” he continued.
