Friday, March 8, marks International Women’s Day, and ONE Championship will bring a pair of women’s title fights to the marquee for ONE Fight Night 20 on Prime Video.
At the top of the card will be a unification bout for the undisputed ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Championship.
Reigning queen Janet Todd will step foot into the ring one last time to defend her crown against interim champion “The Queen” Phetjeeja Lukjaoporongtom, as first reported by Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso.
The 38-year-old has a long list of accomplishments, and she will call it a career in the spotlight against one of the fastest-rising stars in martial arts.
Phetjeeja stormed through her competition since setting foot in ONE with four consecutive TKO victories in Muay Thai action. Then, the Thai star moved over to kickboxing for an interim title collision with pound-for-pound great Anissa Meksen.
The 22-year-old bested the French-Algerian and set herself up to become the undisputed queen in the next step of building a legacy.
In the co-main event, ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Champion Allycia Hellen Rodrigues returns for her next title defense against Cristina Morales.
Morales earned the shot with an impressive first-round TKO win over Anna “Supergirl” Jaroonsak last November. However, defeating Rodrigues will be an even tougher challenge.
The title defense will mark Rodrigues’ return to the atomweight division after an all-out war with ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Champion Smilla Sundell. Back at atomweight, Rodrigues is hopeful to reassert her dominance over the division and showcase her blistering speed against the Spanish striker.
ONE Fight Night 20 airs live on Prime Video on Friday, March 8. The action begins at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST. The event is free for all Amazon Prime subscribers based in the U.S. and Canada.
