Superbon has returned

Superbon returned to winning ways last week.

Thanks to his interim featherweight kickboxing world champion title, Superbon was sure he would triumph over Marat Grigorian in their rematch at ONE Friday Fights 58.

“I felt very impressed because someone was this tough and durable. However, after five rounds, I was confident that I was the winner. Because I think I hit Marat with more weapons than him every round.”

Burklerk’s dominant performance saw him take a clear-cut unanimous decision win inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium on the promotion’s 10-year-anniversary show, ONE X, in March 2022, with the former divisional king coming out on top against Grigorian.

The outcome of their first encounter on a global platform made the Bangkok-based competitor think he’d be in for an easy fight against Grigorian at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium last week.

Nothing, but a bed of roses, though.

The number 2 featherweight kickboxing contender executed perfect attacks and more often than not found ways to get ahead of the top-ranked superstar. Grigorian also defended from his backfoot with accuracy to frustrate Superb.

Unfortunately, that was not enough for the Hemmers Gym fighter to outperform his old time competitor. The fight was also judged unanimously in favor of the Thai superstar by all the ringside judges.

That being said, despite another victory over Grigorian, Superbon compliments the latter.

Saying that Grigorian was a one-hit-wonder and thus underestimating him, the commentators did not consider him seriously.

He spoke at the post-event press conference that came after.

“I think he [Marat Grigorian] did a little bit better from ONE X. Because at ONE X, everything was my game. But this time, it was a little bit [different].”
