ONE 161 Results: Tawanchai Becomes New Champion

Tawanchai PK.Saenchai topped Petchmorakot Petchyindee at ONE 161 to become the new champion.

In the main event from Singapore, Tawanchai earned a decision victory to claim the ONE featherweight Muay Thai title.

The Thai superstars showed equal respect for one another’s skills and power in the very beginning, but soon, Tawanchai pulled ahead with sharp teeps, fierce low kicks, and stinging left hands.

Action picked up in the third stanza, with Tawanchai and Petchmorakot both hunting for a knockout. In a heated fourth round, Petchmorakot rallied, as he sent the challenger reeling across the Circle.

The final three minutes were close, but Tawanchai’s signature kicks and left punches separated the two men, prompting the judges to award him with the gold.

In the co-main event, Roman Kryklia earned a first round finish in kickboxing action.
