Saemapetch Fairtex earned a first round finish in the main event of ONE: Full Blast, which aired via tape-delay on Friday.
Fairtex defeated Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Plek Uthal with a shot to the body in a bout between two top Muay Thai challengers.
Saemapetch and Kulabdam were calculated to start the contest, carefully gauging each other’s strengths while looking to capitalize on openings. After checking a kick from Kulabdam, the Fairtex star retaliated with a left cross to the liver that crumpled his Thai compatriot. With less than a minute to go in the round, Kulabdam could not continue, and Saemapetch was awarded the stoppage victory.
In the co-main event, Xie Wei topped Kantharaj Agasa in the second round.
Miles Simson, Edward Kelly and Anthony Do were other winners.
