Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong won't take Masaaki Noiri lightly: "This is definitely not an easy fight for me"

As confident as he is of victory against Japanese star Masaaki Noiri when the two meet at ONE 167 next month, Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong says he has the utmost respect for the former K-1 world champion.

'Killer Kid' told ONE Championship:

"Masaaki is one of the best kickboxers in the world. His style is pure kickboxing. His strengths are his punches and kicks. He has a dangerous high kick. He is good both offensively and defensively. This is definitely not an easy fight for me – but I’m a legend too."
