Former Glory Kickboxing world champion Marat Grigorian is confident he will defeat Superbon if he can recover quickly between rounds.

In 2018, Superbon and Grigorian fought for the first time at Kunlun Fight 69 - World MAX in Guiyang, China. Grigorian made history that night by knocking out Superbon in 29 seconds before the latter took over the ONE featherweight kickboxing division.

At ONE X, Superbon had revenge on his mind when defending his featherweight world title in a rematch against Grigorian. The Thai superstar came out on top by unanimous decision, leading to a grudge match in the ONE Friday Fights 58 main event.

During an interview with Sportsmanor, Grigorian had this to say about his upcoming fight against Superbon for the interim ONE featherweight kickboxing world title:

"I'm just focusing to make everything perfect. If I can recover fast on that day [in between rounds], I have no worries about that fight."

ONE Friday Fights 58 will stream live from the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. The April 5 event can be seen via pay-per-view on watch.onefc.com.
