Superbon, the Thai icon, returned to the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium of Bangkok for a rematch against Armenian powerhouse Marat Gregoryian as the ONE Friday Fights 58 main event. The winner will be crowned interim ONE kickboxing featherweight world champ, paving the way for a title unification fight with Chingiz Allazov, the undisputed king.

Grigorian tried to apply pressure early on the Thai and delivered a barrage of strikes at the end of the first round. This included a few solid uppercuts which connected cleanly.
