ONE featherweight kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Maywnn’s meteoric rise to greatness is as inspiring as it gets.

The 32-year-old is now considered the best pound-for-pound kickboxer on the planet – a rightful designation he has earned through sheer hard work and dedication to his craft.

In a roster stacked to the brim with the greatest masters of the striking arts, Superbon now stands the tallest after his marvelous conquests inside the circle.

The Thai superstar will hope to showcase his superiority once more this Friday, January 13, in front of his hometown crowd at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand for ONE on Fight Night 6: Superbon vs Allazov on Prime Video.

The entire card will air in US primetime for free for Amazon Prime Video subscribers in the United States and Canada.

That said, here are the three biggest reasons why Superbon is the best kickboxer in the world.

#1. Superbon Singha Mawynn hasn’t tasted defeat in almost four years

While fighters learn in defeat, it leaves a stinging feeling that no one likes to endure. Like every great martial artist, Superbon has had his setbacks over the years.

Back in 2018, Marat Grigorian knocked him out cold in one round. He hasn’t lost since.

Superbon has gone on a rampage since that fateful encounter, going unbeaten in 12 consecutive matches. Going unblemished for almost four years is an extremely tough thing to do, especially with the level of competition that he went through.

Making it even sweeter is the fact that Superbon managed to avenge that hiccup in his last outing, completely outclassing his former tormentor Grigorian across five rounds.

Superbon Singha Mawynn even holds notable victories against legendary opponents like Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong and Giorgio Petrosyan.

This man simply oozes greatness.

#2. Superbon Singha Mawynn has been obliterating his foes

What makes Superbon’s piping-hot 12-fight winning streak even more impressive is the sheer dominance he displayed in those fights.

So far, no one has figured out a way to stop Superbon’s kick-heavy style inspired by his years om the Muay Thai circuit. The pride of Singha Mawynn Muay Thai has made a seamless transition to kickboxing, making his formidable opponents look average at best.

To be fair, Sitthichai gave him a tough fight in his ONE debut, but he still walked away with a unanimous decision victory.

Superbon’s stock, however, rose to an all-time high following that destructive head kick of Petrosyan, who is widely regarded as the best to ever do it. That ridiculous knockout will be replayed on highlights reels for years and years to come.

And let’s not forget the clinic he put up against Grigorian in his first world title defense. It’s never easy to fight a rematch with someone who bested you once before. However, Superbon Singha Mawynn showed the evolution of his game with absolute control of range and distance.

He was one step ahead of his opponent throughout the entire match, blasting him with all kinds of kicks and teeps from head to toe.

Apart from his overwhelming offense, the world champion also displayed impenetrable defenses since he’s also one of the promotion’s least-hit fighters.

#3. Superbon Singha Mawynn is only getting better

As phenomenal as Superbon Singha Mawynn already is, what’s scary is he’s not even in his peak form just yet. No doubt he’s in the prime of his fighting career, but the fact that he develops a new skill with every match is a terrifying thought for his future challengers.

Aside from beating the best, the Thai megastar also works with the best to achieve his goals. We all know his amazing bond with his Trainer Gae. They’re like family at this point and as in sync as two people can be.

He’s also a disciple of the fabled Buakaw, whose name is already synonymous with Muay Thai.

Iron sharpens iron, and it’s not unusual for Superbon to trade leather with his fellow world champions Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and Petchtanong Petchfergus.
