Former featherweight kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Mawynn will challenge fellow Muay Thai Tawanchai phenomenon PK Saenchai for the ONE Muay Thai featherweight world title at ONE Fight Night 15.

On October 6, two of the greatest Thai strikers of this generation will face off inside the iconic Lumpini Boxing Arena in what many consider one of the most important bouts in modern Muay Thai history.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated super fight, the former featherweight kickboxing world champion was seen teaching ONE Championship commentator Mitch Chilson how to land one of his signature weapons – his legendary head kick:

“The music was removed from my original clip. So I updated it with a new song. What do you think? @superbon_banchamek shows us his high kick. Don’t miss Tawanchai VS Superbon at ONE Fight Night 15”

If you’re a practitioner or just an enthusiast, this is technical gold. It’s best to start doing this exercise in the gym if you want to claim souls with your head kick like the Thai legend.

Fans are giving their two cents on the video in the comments section:

Comments on the video

@wanderingtiger mentioned that he was taught the same style by French WPMF European and World Muay Thai Champion and Lumpini Stadium Champion Damien Alamos:

“Damien Alamos just told me something similar about not leaning back but staying upright when kicking to get more power. 🔥🙌”

@tetsusaiga7 has a more detailed technical analysis of the video:

“Yes, standing on your toes or on the instep is a very important detail in fighting. I used to fight flat-footed, but the coach taught me the benefits of staying on the instep. It allows for faster movement and mobility.”, and lifting kicks like this. You also have better balance and your ability to execute kicks faster compared to flat feet. Checking kicks is also faster on the balls of your feet.”

Watch Superbon battle for a second world title in the main event of ONE Fight Night 15 on October 6. The event is available live and free to all Prime Video subscribers in North America.
