ONE Championship will hold “ONE: Dreams of Gold” at the Impact Arena in Bangkok on August 16, 2019. One of the ONE Super Series bouts is a catchweight Muay Thai contest between Bangpleenoi and Liam Nolan, 22, of the United Kingdom.

“I want to prove to myself and to all the fans that I am one of the best fighters in my weight class,” Bangpleenoi stated. “Each time I step through those ropes, I carry the pride of Thailand with me.”

“ONE: Dreams of Gold” marks Bangpleenoi’s second ONE Super Series outing. It is also Nolan’s second bout in the striking-only league of ONE Championship.

“First of all, it is both an honor and a privilege to showcase my skills in front of all the Thai fans here in Bangkok,” Bangpleenoi said. “Competing against the best in the world here in my hometown is a very special moment for me. I do everything in my power to bring glory to my country and prove that Thai fighters are the most talented and hard-working athletes.”
