Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke, ONE Strawweight World Champion, stated: “It has always been my dream to compete at home in front of all of my family and friends, in front of the people of Thailand. I am grateful to ONE Championship for giving me the opportunity to live my dream and honoring me as champion. This fight means so much to me and I promise to give my all inside the cage.”
