From: Spartacus

Bangkok’s renowned Lumpinee Boxing Stadium is set to transform into a battleground of martial arts mastery this Friday, November 24, as it hosts the much-anticipated ONE Friday Fights 42. This event, steeped in the rich tradition of martial combat, presents a stunning array of Muay Thai, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts clashes, ensuring a feast for fight aficionados.

The spotlight shines brightest on the main event, a 141-pound catchweight Muay Thai clash that brings together Thai star Kaonar Sor Jor Thongprajin and the Brazilian striker Julio Lobo. Kaonar, despite a rocky start in ONE, enters the ring with the experience and accolades of a Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai World Champion. His poised and calculated fighting style, characterized by a slick southpaw stance, readies him for the aggressive assault promised by Lobo. With both fighters seeking their first victory in the organization, the stakes couldn’t be higher, and the clash promises to be a strategic and explosive encounter.

The co-main event features a striking stylistic contrast in the bantamweight Muay Thai division. Ferrari Fairtex, a technician known for his precision and skill, faces the formidable challenge of Kirill Khomutov. Khomutov, riding the momentum of two consecutive knockout victories, brings a raw, brawler’s power that could test Ferrari’s technical prowess. For Ferrari, this fight offers a chance to reassert his dominance and halt Khomutov’s rise, adding a strategic layer to this electrifying matchup.

Adding variety to the fight card, Elbrus “The Samurai” Osmanov and “Muay Thai Boy” Zhang Chenglong are set to clash in a bantamweight kickboxing bout. Osmanov, with an unblemished record in ONE Friday Fights, is poised to maintain his winning streak. Zhang, however, seeks to rediscover the form that once earned him a title shot, making this fight a potential turning point in both fighters’ careers.

In addition to these striking battles, the event showcases the future of MMA with several compelling bouts. Undefeated strawweights Zaiundin “Black Tiger” Suleimanov and Sanzhar “Tornado” Zakirov will vie to maintain their perfect records, while the lightweight match between Sumit Bhyan and Matheus Pereira, along with the welterweight duel featuring Bismarck Gomes against Asylbek Almasbekov, promise high-octane action from the opening bell.

Fans can anticipate adrenaline-pumping action in matchups like the 136-pound catchweight fight between Khunponnoi Sor Sommai and Lamnamkhong BS Muaythai, and the 128-pound catchweight bout pitting Sornsueknoi FA Group against Petkhaowang Sor Jor Lekmuangnon.

In the lighter divisions, excitement continues with Rachan Sor Somnuk taking on Kongkairop Dr.Kaewnonthaburi in a 112-pound catchweight Muay Thai match, while Ploykhao VK Khaoyai faces Fahlan Por Petkhaikaew in another catchweight battle. The flyweight division will see a thrilling encounter between Seksan Fairtex and Joker Paesaisi, and in the atomweight category, Zehra Dogan is set to square off against Yu Yau Pui.
