Two ONE world champions are set to collide in one of the most exciting striking match-ups of the year when the organisation brings its nonstop martial arts spectacle to the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Nov 19.

That day, ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon is slated to defend his gold against ONE strawweight Muay Thai world champion Joseph Lasiri in the headline bout of ONE Fight Night 4.

Thailand's Rodtang has stolen the hearts of fans all over the world, thanks to his superb fighting style inside the circle and effervescent personality outside of it.

"The Iron Man" holds a staggering record of 268-42-10, including a 11-1 slate in ONE and has taken out some of the toughest men in the division over which he reigns.

The likes of Jonathan "The General" Haggerty, Danial "Mini T" Williams, and Petchdam "The Baby Shark" Petchyindee have all fallen victim to his ruthless aggression.

This will be Rodtang's fourth title defence, and it comes against a competitor eager to add the Thai to his growing list of wins on the global stage.

"The Hurricane" finds himself riding a three-fight winning streak that includes snatching the strawweight Muay Thai gold from Prajanchai PK Saenchai earlier this year.

The Moroccan-Italian fighter is hungry for action and seeking the fabled "double-champ" status in ONE.

Fans worldwide will be waiting with bated breath to see who walks away as king of the flyweight Muay Thai division when these two hard-hitting superstars square off on Nov 19.

Before the flyweight fury goes down, stay tuned to catch all the action at ONE 162: Zhang v Di Bella on Oct 21 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
