ONE Muay Thai fighter Saemapetch Fairtex snapped a recent losing skid in brutal fashion against Rittewada Petchyindee at ONE 160.
Fairtex and Petchyindee battled in a featherweight matchup on the main card of ONE 160 on Friday in Singapore. Both fighters were looking to make a statement in their Muay Thai clash and move up in the promotional rankings.
It didn’t take all but less than two minutes for Fairtex to find his timing with his hands. In the first round, he threw a 1-2 combination that landed clean to Petchyindee’s chin to immediately put him to sleep.
