Muay Thai phenomenon Tawanchai PK Saenchai bets on beating Superlek daniel williams, but not without a fight.
This Friday, kickboxing division king Superlek Kiatmoo9 will go head-to-head with Danial Williams at ONE Fight Night 8 on Prime Video instead of Rodtang Jitumuangnon. While the news comes as a shock, a showdown between Superlek and Williams is the next best thing.
Muay Thai bantamweight king Tawanchai PK Saenchai is excited to see how the two forwards will match up this Friday as they have both shown great performances in the past. In this case, however, he leans into his friend to beat Danial Williams, but not without some sort of challenge. Speaking to ONE Championship, the 23-year-old star predicted:
“I personally like Daniel. He’s a tough fighter. He has a strong heart and heavy weapons. But I think Superlek is superior to him in terms of experience and physical advantages. His right kick is deadly. I think Superlek will win this fight but maybe not KO because Danial is the tough one.
Williams enter the kickboxing scene with nothing to lose and everything to gain. He was originally set to face Portuguese forward Rui Bolteho in a muay thai strawweight bout before being asked to step in as Rodtang’s replacement just days ago. Though he goes into the foray with a list of disadvantages, he’s willing to put in the work for a shot at winning a world title.

Daniel Williams tells Superlek he’s coming for the win
‘mini T’ Daniel Williams enjoying the short time he has to sink Superleks Skin before they meet in circle this Friday.
Williams is coming off a 5-month hiatus after suffering a devastating TKO loss to Jeremy Miado at ONE last year on Prime Video 3. Before his loss, “Mini-T” had a string of wins in MMA to establish himself among the most dangerous forwards in his division.
He is known for his aggressive, high-volume fighting style that could cause a lot of trouble for Superlek who likes to fight at his own pace. To prove he’s not afraid of Superlek, Williams sent the Pattaya-bred fighter the following message on Instagram:
“The pressure is on you, not on me at all. I will give you an absolute war. I know you guys wanted to see the Rodtang Superlek, so I will make this trail more exciting. I come for the win, this belt is mine.”
