One Championship to Run Friday Fights 46 Show on Dec. 22 as Pay-Per-View

One Championship is testing the waters of a pay-per-view model next week.

According to a release from the promotion on Friday, ONE Friday Fights 46, which will be held on Dec. 22 at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, will be a pay-per-view event. The entire card will consist of muay thai or kickboxing matches, without the early preliminaries containing an MMA bout or two. The price of the event will be $39.99, or $33.99 if ordered before event day. Three belts will be on the line on the five-fight main card, with the headliner for the 155-pound muay thai strap between Tawanchai P.K. Saenchaimuaythaigym and Superbon Singha Mawynn.

Tawanchai, 24, first won the ONE muay thai featherweight belt when he defeated Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy at ONE 161 in 2022. Since then, he has successfully defended it once against Jamal Yusupov in February, while taking two non-title tilts against Davit Kiria and Jo Nattawut—winning both. His foe Superbon joined the organization not as a muay thai fighter but as a kickboxer, and he claimed the 155-pound kickboxing championship by starching Giorgio Petrosyan in 2021. Superbon went on to defend it a single time before losing it to Chingiz Allazov in January, and this foray for the title will be his first muay thai matchup in the promotion.

In addition to Tawanchai vs. Superbon, ONE is staging a muay thai title unification bout between champion Joseph Lasiri and interim beltholder Prajanchai P.K. Saenchai. The two will tangle at 125 pounds for the promotion’s undisputed strawweight muay thai crown. They have met once before, with Lasiri getting the better of his foe and forcing Prajanchai to retire at the end of Round 3 for that title. When Lasiri moved up to 135 pounds to challenge for another throne, the former champ Prajanchai picked up interim gold against Sam-A Gaiyanghadao in June, flattening the 40-year-old grizzled vet with a vicious elbow.

The last of three gold belts on the line at this event will come at 115 pounds, in an interim kickboxing variety. With Janet Todd testing her might in the muay thai sphere, Phetjeeja OrMeekhun and Anissa Meksen will vie for the interim belt. The Thai has won 12 straight, including four in the ONE ring, while racking up 11 stoppages on the way. Most recently she slashed up Celest Hansen in October to pick up the third-round finish. Meksen, since introducing herself to the promotion in 2021, has not lost either. Her total win streak sits at four—although her last loss came against pound-for-pound talent Tiffany Van Soest to settle their trilogy—and three of those have come under the ONE banner. This will be the Frenchwoman’s first bout in 2023, having last competed against Dangkongfah Banchamek in October 2022, where she won on all three scorecards.
