Rodlek plans to remain unbeaten as he chases bantamweight gold
Now he is gunning for gold as he enters the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament and clashes with Saemapetch Fairtex in the main event of ONE: NO SURRENDER II in Bangkok, Thailand, this Friday, 14 August. The winner of the four-man tourney faces reigning ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao – and with the gold at stake, this is an opportunity Rodlek does not plan on wasting. “If I win this fight, there will be a higher chance to get [a title shot], and if I lose, I will need to start from the beginning,” Rodlek told ONEFC.com. “So, I will not let my guard down.” The 30-year-old is very familiar with Saemapetch, having faced him three times already and winning two of those matches. While he’s had the upper hand in their previous encounters, he will not take Saemapetch lightly in their fourth encounter. “He is one of [the most] skilled boxers I have ever known. His punches are powerful, and he has powerful weapons and cannot be underestimated,” Rodlek said.
