Giorgio Petrosyan and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy do their second battle this coming Friday (July 12) at Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The pair headlines the “ONE: Masters of Destiny” event, squaring off in the quarter-final bout of ONE Super Series Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix.

The contest follows their first encounter in May in Singapore, which initially ended in split decision in favor of Petchmorakot, but was then overturned and declared as “No Contest”.

The open workout was recently held at The Grounds KL at MAHSA Avenue in Kuala Lumpur with both competitors attending. Although no quotes followed from the fighters, Petchmorakot has previously said that he expected “hard battle”, which pits multiple world champions in kickboxing and Muay Thai.
