“Delval came out the aggressor, pushing Nong-O back with a relentless barrage of punches and kicks. The Thai icon found his groove in the second round as he began to punish Delval with solid kicks to the body and to the legs all throughout the rest of the fast-paced match. The challenger, however, remained on the offensive as he managed to maintain his pace while also landing good shots on Nong-O. After five rounds of back-and-forth action, it was Nong-O who was declared the winner, remaining undefeated in his ONE career,” reads the event recap sent out by the promotion.
Nong-O claimed the inaugural belt by unanimous decision against Han Zi Hao this past February. In May he made his first successful defense by unanimous decision against Hiroaki Suzuki.
