ONE Championship has announced the full card for ONE Lumpinee 11, topped by a blockbuster rematch.
In the March 31 headliner at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Superball TDed99 and Kongklai Annymuay Thai will battle once again.
The pair traded knockdowns in their first encounter at ONE Lumpinee 5 last month, with Superball emerging victorious via decision after three thrilling rounds of action.
Both fighters were awarded 350,000 Thai Baht performance bonuses for the all-out clash, courtesy of ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
In the co-feature, Superball's teammate ET TDed99 will make his ONE debut alongside another promotional newcomer in Apiwat Sor Somnuk.
Atop the international portion of the card, rising Australian star Tyson Harrison will look to record his first win under the ONE banner when he takes on two-time Rajadamnern Stadium World Champion Rambo Mor Rattanabandit.
Harrison made a big impression in his promotional debut back in January. Although he came out on the wrong end of a razor-thin split decision, "John Wayne Noi" put on an unforgettable fight with Thai legend Seksan Or Kwanmuang.
Rambo, for his part, will be keen to make an impression of his own in his ONE debut by taking out Harrison.
Former Max Muay Thai Champion and MMA convert Yodkaikaew Fairtex will fight under Muay Thai rules for the first time since joining ONE, as he takes on Greek striker Angelos Giakoumis.
"Y2K" has fought seven times for the promotion, scoring highlight-reel finishes over John Shink and Alex Shild. The 32-year-old will now look to kick off a run in his native sport, while Giakoumis will be desperate to atone for his debut defeat to Mohammad Sadeghi at ONE Lumpinee 1.
Devina Martin will also make her ONE debut on the card, joining her sister Diandra Martin on the ONE roster. The 25-year-old will face formidable Chinese veteran Yu Yau Pui.
The card is rounded out by three mixed martial arts contests.
