I hope to make new fans as well with my fighting style. My opponent, Kulabdam, is a very dangerous Nak Muay. He’s even more dangerous now that we are going to fight in 4oz. gloves which will no doubt amplify his power. He’s aggressive and powerful. However, I’m one hundred percent physically and mentally ready for this fight. I will try to put my best performance together and get one step closer to my goal of becoming ONE World Champion.”

To my opponent, let’s make our fight fun and exciting for the fans. I’ve prepared a sound game plan with my team, and we’ve studied this fight from all angles. I want to show fans what we’ve got planned on event night.”
