Petchdam is the former Thailand and Lumpinee Boxing Stadium champion (118 lbs). He made his ONE Championship debut in February in Singapore, where he stopped Masahide Kudo in the first round. In his previous outing in May in Bangkok he took the inaugural ONE Flyweight Kickboxing title via the fourth-round technical decision against Elias Mahmoudi.
Ilias Ennahachi (34-3-0) of Holland makes his ONE Super Series debut. He is coming of the second-round TKO win against Madani Belhaddad scored in April. Before that he defeated Enez Ilgin, Issam Laazibi, Krobsut Fairtex, among others.
The co-main event at “ONE Dreams of Gold” pits Giorgio Petrosyan and Jo Nattawut. The pair meets for the second time. Their first bout in April 2018 ended in favor of Petrosyan, who earned a unanimous decision. The contest is a semi-final bout of ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix.
The winner of Petrosyan-Nattawut 2 is expected to face the winner of another semi-final, which is also slotted for the upcoming card. The encounter features Samy Sana face off Dzhabar Askerov. Both bouts are scheduled for three rounds.
Among other matchups, the reigning ONE Muay Thai and Kickboxing Atomweight champion Stamp Fairtex returns to mixed martial arts taking on Asha Roka. The women’s MMA contest is scheduled for three rounds at atomweight.
