ONE Championship has announced the full fight card for the 10th instalment of its weekly ONE Lumpinee series.
ONE Lumpinee 10 takes place tomorrow at Bangkok's Lumpinee Boxing Stadium and will be headlined by the debuts of Thai duo Yodkritsada Sor Sommai and Theptaksin Sor Sornsing.
Yodkritsada holds a staggering 220-30-3 professional record and will be keen to impress the ONE brass in his 132-pound catchweight debut, as will Theptaksin.
In the co-main event, Thai fighters Paedsanlek PK Saenchai and Panrit Lukjaomaesaiwaree will be hunting for their maiden ONE wins following knockout losses in their respective debuts.
While Paedsanlek fell victim to an Elbrus Amirkhanovich spinning back kick at ONE Lumpinee 3 last month, Panrit was stopped by Ilyas Musaev.
Expect fireworks as the pair look to rebound and kick off a run at the bantamweight Muay Thai gold.
Before the feature bouts, former Lumpinee champion Rak Erawan makes his ONE debut against fellow debutant Chusap Sor Salachep.
The 21-year-old prodigy comes to the promotion with a 71-10 record, highlighted by his Lumpinee light-flyweight world title win back in 2020 at the age of just 19.
In bantamweight MMA action, Japanese fighter Yu Karino and Thailand-based Russian Ivan Parshikov will make their promotional bows, while a pair of heavyweights will also collide, as Lawrence Phillips looks to build upon his memorable debut earlier this month.
At ONE Lumpinee 7, Phillips needed just 18 seconds to dispatch his US compatriot Ben Parker with a highlight-reel slam.
The hulking American is wasting no time returning to Lumpinee, as he takes on debuting Russian Akhmed Baguzhaev.
Meanwhile, Chorfah Tor Sangtiennoi faces Sherzod Kabutov in a flyweight Muay Thai bout in the lead card.
The event starts at 7.30pm and will be televised live on Channel 7HD from 8.30pm.
