Kulabdam puts faith in his might to tame Sangmanee

Their bout is the main event of ONE: No Surrender III, a closed-door extravaganza which will be shown live on Thai Rath TV (32) from 10:40pm.

It is also a semi-final in the ONE Muay Thai tournament, a two-bracket single elimination ladder to determine the No.1 contender for Nong-O Gaiyanghadao’s One bantamweight Muay Thai world title.

Kulabdam, which means ‘black rose’ in Thai, is excited to showcase his unique skills in the ring, and possibly inch himself closer to his ultimate goal.

“The goal I set for myself in the ONE Championship is to become the champion,” said Kulabdam.

“It’s an aggressive style. I walk at them, I kick their legs, and I punch them. My style is quite risky.”

Against Sangmanee, Kulabdam faces one of his toughest tests to date.

Kulabdam, seven-time Muay Thai world champion, is aware of his opponent’s many strengths, and feels honoured to be able to share the stage with a man he calls “brother”.

“Brother Sangmanee has a skilful fighting style with a high IQ,” said Kulabdam.

“The scariest tactics of Sangmanee are his left foot and his elbows. They are very scary. I do feel somewhat worried, but I am happy to fight someone of his calibre.”

A victory here will bring him one step closer to the world title.

“I am confident in the power of my punches. If I hit him, it will be enough for sure,” said Kulabdam.
