ONE Championship has released a summary of Rodtang Jitmuangnon’s development.
“The Iron Man” debuted with ONE in January 2019. Since then, the Muay Thai phenom has become a household name for combat sports fans. Rodtang currently holds a promotional record of 10-0 in Muay Thai and a 1-0 record in kickboxing. The Thai also recently competed in a historic mixed rules fight against Demetrious Johnson.
ONE Championship recently released a YouTube video to help promote the world flyweight champion, with the caption saying:
“What makes Rodtang so TERRIFYING?” Watch ONE Championship commentator Mitch Chilson break down some of the Muay Thai flyweight king’s fearsome moves. Tune in on November 18 as Rodtang returns to action to defend his throne against Muay Thai King Joseph Lasiri’s strawweight at ONE on Prime Video 4!
Rodtang’s next challenge is against ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Champion Joseph Lasiri at ONE on Prime Video 4. Lasiri struggled in the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai division but then found his groove in the weight class lower.
His run culminated in a world title winning performance against Prajanchai PK.Saenchai earlier this year. Meanwhile, ‘The Iron Man’ has announced his desire to become a ONE kickboxing world champion if he defeats Lasiri.
