ONE Fight Night 8 Results: Superlek KOs Danial Williams
A pair of title fights were the featured bouts as ONE Fight Night 8 presented by ONE Championship took place recently.
Superlek Kiatmoo9 defended his ONE flyweight kickboxing title at ONE Fight Night 8 recently.
In the main event, Superlek stopped Danial Williams, while the ONE Muay Thai atomweight belt was also unified.
Right off the bat, Superlek lived up to his moniker of “The Kicking Machine.” He fired off his dreaded piston-like kicks, forcing Williams to scramble for a way to fend off the Thai’s advances.
As the bout continued, it became more apparent that Williams was simply not ready for Superlek’s power. In the third round, Superlek knocked down the Aussie with a massive knee that was intended to be a head kick. Williams returned to his feet, but his legs were already wobbly.
Superlek then put the finishing touches on “Mini T” with a solid boxing combination to send him to the canvas once more. This time, Williams could not beat the 10-count, prompting referee Olivier Coste to stop the contest.
In the co-main event, Allycia Hellen Rodrigues put everything on the line to unify the ONE atomweight Muay championship and beat interim titleholder Janet Todd by unanimous decision.
“JT” started out strong, operating behind her pinpoint combinations and well-placed counterpunches to stifle the Brazilian in the opening two stanzas. However, Rodrigues came alive in the third round, where she brought the fight to the American with overwhelming attacks punctuated by her signature elbow strike.
