Tawanchai PK Saenchai will be putting up his ONE featherweight Muay Thai world championship on the line against 'Smokin' Jo Nattawut in the main event of ONE 167 on June 7.

To date, Tawanchai has successfully defended it twice against the likes of Jamal Yusupov and Superbon Singha Mawynn in impressive fashion.

When they first shared the Circle last October, Nattawut did everything in his power to come out the victor, but the PK Saenchai Muay Thai gym product was able to edge him out on the scorecards for the unanimous decision win.

"I cannot really predict how I would win, but I can assure you that I will be looking for the finish to defend my belt."

ONE 167 will air live and free to all Prime Video subscribers in the United States and Canada.
