ONE Championship to End 2023 With a Bang as Nong-O Hama and Nico Carrillo Defend Muay Thai Belts

ONE Championship is gearing up to end 2023 with a thrilling all-striking card in the form of ONE Friday Fights 46. The event will feature the defense of the ONE featherweight and strawweight Muay Thai belts in the main event and co-main event, respectively. Fans of the striking game are particularly looking forward to a matchup in the bantamweight Muay Thai division, where Nong-O Hama will go head-to-head with Nico Carrillo.

Carrillo has been on a successful streak since joining the world’s biggest martial arts promotion, securing notable wins over Furkan Karabag and Muangthai PK Saenchai through TKOs. With impressive power, Carrillo has proven to be a force to be reckoned with in the ring. However, his upcoming opponent, Nong-O Hama, is no stranger to the world of Muay Thai. Nong-O is a Muay Thai legend, having claimed numerous titles all over the world, including four Lumpinee Boxing Stadium championships in different weight divisions and a reign as the former ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion with seven successful title defenses.

In an interview with ONE Championship, Nong-O expressed his readiness to take on Carrillo and acknowledged that Carrillo’s camp is wary of him. He boldly stated, “Then let’s prove it on the ring that the legend or new gen is better.”

When it comes to predicting the outcome of the bout, Nong-O is holding off on making any concrete predictions. He emphasized, “Let’s find out in the ring. Right now I can’t answer who gonna KO or got KO’d.”

ONE Friday Fights 46 is scheduled to take place on December 22, and fans around the world can catch the event through their local listings or by visiting ONE Championship’s official website.
