Fans will have to wait a little longer to witness the highly anticipated battle between Tawanchai PK Saenchai and Superbon Singha Mawynn, as it was given a new date for the third time this week. The match between two of Thailand’s most impressive strikers, which is still set to be for Tawanchai’s ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title, is now scheduled to take place at ONE Friday Fights 46 on Friday, December 22 – the promotion’s last card of the year – at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

Unfortunately, it was reported this week that Tawanchai recently fell victim to a “serious virus” and was recovering in the hospital until his discharge this weekend. Thus, ONE deemed it pertinent to rebook the monumental clash.

Should there be no further roadblocks, fans can expect the pair to square off at ONE Championship’s fourth tentpole edition of its weekly martial arts showcase in Bangkok, and the event is already looking stacked.

More high-profile matches are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if viewership records are shattered again by the world’s largest martial arts organization.
