ONE Championship: Superbon gives injury update for Tawanchai fight, laughs off ‘ducking’ claims

Former kickboxing champion reveals 3.54cm muscle tear in right calf that rules him out of Muay Thai title fight on October 7‘You listen to me. I’m a professional fighter, I fight everywhere in the world to become champion.

When the Post turned up at Superbon Singha Mawynn’s new personal gym in Bangkok for an interview last Friday afternoon, he was nowhere to be found.

Around 20 minutes later, the gym’s receptionist passed over a phone, and it was none other than the former ONE Championship featherweight kickboxing king himself.

“I’m sorry, I’m at the doctor,” he said. “I can be there in a few hours.”

A man of his word, the 32-year-old Thai returned to Superbon Training Camp and he showed the Post a series of pictures from an MRI scan, confirming a 3.54cm tear in his right calf muscle.

It put paid to any notion he was “ducking” an October 7 title fight with featherweight Muay Thai champion Tawanchai PK Saenchai at ONE Fight Night 15 inside Lumpinee Stadium.
