ONE’s reigning featherweight kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Mawynn is scheduled to make his return as part of the stacked ONE on Prime Video 2 lineup on September 30th.
Before his highly anticipated return, ONE Championship is looking back at the life of the Thai superstar in a series of images shared on the promotion’s Instagram account:
“Hard work pays off 🙏 Superbon Singha Mawynn defends the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Title against World Grand Prix Champion Chingiz Allazov on September 30 at ONE on Prime Video 2! 🏆 @superbon_banchamek”
Superbon began training in Muay Thai at the young age of five and astonishingly entered competition just one year later. At 18, he moved to Bangkok to continue competing while getting his education. Before long, Superbon walked away from competition to focus on building a career as a civil servant in hopes of earning more for his family. He then entered the police academy after earning his business degree.
However, a chance meeting with Muay Thai legend Buakaw Banchamek renewed his desire to compete. He transitioned to kickboxing under Buakaw’s guidance and later went under the tutelage of another legend, Trainer Gae. Superbon Singha Mawynn made his ONE Championship debut against Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong in July 2020.
After sourcing a victory over his former rival, Superbon followed that up with spectacular wins over Giorgio Petrosyan and Marat Grigorian to establish himself as the best pound-for-pound kickboxer in the world today.
