Fight fans are still going crazy over the clash between Thai legends Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Superlek Kiatmoo9.

Dubbed the biggest Muay Thai fight of the last 50 years, there was no better setting than the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok for a three-round war between reigning ONE world champions Rodtang and Superlek. It was a bout years in the making and needless to say, it did not disappoint as both men battered one another in the back-and-forth brawl that ultimately saw Superlek walk away as the victory.

ONE Championship is looking back on the already-iconic matchup via a series of highlights on its official Instagram. The promotion also posed the question, is the world ready for a rematch between Superlek and Rodtang?

“Catch the HISTORIC Muay Thai scrap between Superlek and Rodtang once again 🥊 Who wants to see a rematch? 👀”
