Representing Fairtex Gym in Pattaya, Thailand, Saemapetch Fairtex, 23, has earned his second victory in ONE Championship’s striking-only league ONE Super Series. He was one of the winners at “ONE: Conquest of Champions” on November 23, 2018 and was the only Thai fighter on the card.

Featuring eight mixed martial arts matches, two Muay Thai bouts and two kickboxing contests, “ONE: Conquest of Champions” took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It was the fourth and last ONE Championship event to be held in the country in 2018.

In the ninth bout of the evening, Saemapetch competed in a Muay Thai contest in the bantamweight division against Alaverdi “Dagger” Ramazanov, 23, of Russia. The latter is training out of Venum Training Camp in Pattaya.

In a spirited Muay Thai contest, Saemapetch and Ramazanov put on an absolute show for fans at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The Russian martial artist used his height and length to pose problems for Saemapetch early.

However, Saempetch would start to come on in the second round. Ramazanov would try his best to outwork his Thai opponent but the latter proved much too explosive and powerful.

After three rounds of action, all three judges saw the bout in favor of Saemapetch to win by unanimous decision. He earned his first ONE Super Series win on July 7, 2018 at “ONE: Battle for the Heavens” at the Guangzhou Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou, China where he defeated Deividas “The Savage Sitsongpeenong” Danyla, 26, of Lithuania via unanimous decision.
