In the main event of “ONE: Kingdom of Heroes” on October 6, 2018 at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand dominated Mexico’s Iran Diaz over the course of 12 rounds to retain the World Boxing Council Super Flyweight World Championship. The Thai boxing superstar sent the crowd into a rapturous chorus of cheers by clinching a unanimous decision win over his Mexican challenger.
Srisaket banked on his heavy hands and southpaw stance as he persistently hammered the taller Diaz with hard body shots from the opening bell. The consistent attack to the midsection paid dividends for the defending champion in the later rounds as the challenger dropped his defensive guard.
This prompted Srisaket to increase his offense that had Diaz reeling inside the ring. The Thai boxer unleashed a series of power shots in the championship rounds but his Mexican opponent amazingly withstood the blitz of punches from the hometown hero.
In the end, the three judges unanimously awarded the victory in favor of the Thai defending champion with the scores of 119-109, 120-108 and 119-109. Here are the official “ONE: Kingdom of Heroes” results:
