Former ONE featherweight kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Mawynn is one of the slickest kickers in the game today. That's a huge statement given that his sport is filled with some of the best kickers the world has ever seen. Superbon Singha Mawynn understands the nuances of kicking so well that his defense is just as dangerous as his offense.

This was on full display in a video released by ONE Championship. The former ONE featherweight Muay Thai king showed us what to do in case our head kick misses:

"Counters on counters 👌 @superbon_banchamek"

Superbon's counter-foot sweep is a thing of beauty. Not only should you worry about countering his attacks, you should also worry about him countering your counter. It's safe to say that you'd be hard pressed to find a fighter who could out-kick Superbon. His sophisticated level of understanding of kicking techniques is only reserved for legends among legends.

Superbon Singha Mawynn's legendary kick produced one of kickboxing's most shocking knockouts

Thanks to his legendary kicking game, Superbon Singha Mawynn delivered one of the most shockingly violent head-kick knockouts in kickboxing history. At ONE: First Strike back in 2021, Superbon shook up the foundations of the kickboxing world by sending the legendary Giorgio 'The Doctor' Petrosyan to the shadow realm.

Petrosyan, largely considered one of the greatest kickboxers of all time, was debuting in the promotion with a legendary resume. He's only lost twice in 100 fights before facing Superbon.

'The Doctor', as Petrosyan's fans would call him, was expected to surgically dismantle the Thai striker throughout the fight. Superbon, however, was never fazed by Petrosyan's trademark clinical precision and controlled aggression. The Thai legend answered Petrosyan's attacks - kick for kick and punch for punch.

In the second round, Superbon etched his name in history by connecting with a left-hook and then followed up with a right head-kick that immediately separated Petrosyan from his senses. The Armenian-Italian legend fell to the floor like his soul was snatched from his body.

It was in this moment that the world recognized Superbon as a force to be reckoned with in the sport. Pulling off such an impressive knockout over a bonafide legend is something only legends themselves can easily achieve.
