Ilias Ennahachi, 23, of the Netherlands will challenge reigning ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Champion “The Baby Shark” Petchdam Petchyindee Academy, 21, of Thailand at “ONE: Dreams of Gold.” ONE Championship will hold the combat sports event at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on August 16, 2019.

“ONE: Dreams of Gold” will feature mixed martial arts, kickboxing and Muay Thai. The match between Ennachi and Petchdam is the main event.

Petchdam won the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship in his last bout. Now, he is ready to make the first defense of his title against Ennahachi.

A multiple-time Muay Thai World Champion, Petchdam is known for his devastating left kick, which is responsible for the majority of his wins. He trains out of the famed Petchyindee Academy in Bangkok alongside fellow Thai Muay Thai World Champions Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy, 25, and Sorgraw Petchyindee Academy, 26.

Among the several prestigious accolades Petchdam claimed over the course of his stellar career are Lumpinee Stadium and WBC World Muay Thai Championships and a Toyota Marathon Tournament Title. In May 2019, he captured the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title with a comprehensive performance against Elias “The Sniper” Mahmoudi, 21, of Algeria.

Challenging Petchdam at “ONE: Dreams of Gold” is Ennahachi, a ONE Super Series debutante. The Dutch-Moroccan kickboxer is considered one of the top kickboxers in the world and is one of the fastest rising talents in the sport.

At a young age, Ennahachi is already a six-time Kickboxing World Champion and is now looking to compete against the world’s best in ONE Super Series. With a professional kickboxing record of 34 wins and 3 losses, he is facing a difficult task, which is to dethrone Petchdam in the ONE Championship stage.
