“This August, I’m going to shock the world once again and I’m going to take down this giant,” Nattawut said. “I have my eye on the prize, and I’m going to do everything I can to beat Petrosyan and reach the tournament finals.”
It will be a rematch between Petrosyan and Nattawut. The Thai kickboxer lost to his Armenian-Italian rival during their first ONE Super Series encounter.
“I know my opponent is a legend in this sport and I’ve already lost to him before but I’ve made some key changes to my training and overall style,” Nattawut shated,” “I’m not the same fighter I was a year ago when we first met. I’m stronger and faster now and more well-prepared for our second meeting.”
