Petchdam will compete against Josh “Timebomb” Tonna of Australia in a Muay Thai contest in the flyweight division at “ONE: Pursuit of Power.” It will be the first bout of the evening.
Currently reigning as the ONE Super Series Muay Thai Flyweight World Champion is Muay Thai legend Sam-A Gaiyanghadao, a Thai martial artist based in Singapore.

Like Petchdam, Tonna is making his ONE Super Series debut at “ONE: Pursuit of Power.” It will be one of the three ONE Super Series matches of the evening.
The second ONE Super Series match at “ONE: Pursuit of Power” will be between Sergej Maslobojev of Lithuania and Florent Kaouachi of France . They will compete in a kickboxing match in the middleweight division.
“ONE: Pursuit of Power” will be the second ONE Championship event to take place in Malaysia in 2018. It will be headlined by “Smokin” Jo Nattawut of Thailand and Yohann Fairtex Drai of France, who will compete in a Muay Thai contest in the featherweight division.
The first ONE Championship event to take place in Malaysia in 2018 was “ONE: Visions of Victory.” On March 9, 2018, the crowd at the Axiata Arena witnessed how Reece “Lightning” McLaren of Australia submitted Gianni Subba of Malaysia via arm-triangle choke in the main event.
