Another action-packed night of fights is in store tomorrow at Bangkok's Lumpinee Boxing Stadium.

ONE Lumpinee 17 is headlined by a catchweight showdown, as Pompetch PK Saenchai makes his promotional bow against seasoned star Duangsompong Jitmuangnon.

Former Channel 7 Stadium champion Pompetch brings a four-fight winning streak to ONE, although it will be his first fight in four-ounce gloves.

Duansompong, on the other hand, tasted ONE Muay Thai action in February following an elite run on the Thai stadium circuit in which he defeated Michael Savvas, Chorfah Tor Sangtiennoi and Petchdam Petchyindee, among others.

At ONE Lumpinee 4, the 25-year-old defeated Batman Or Atchariya by majority decision.

In the night's co-main event, Komawut FA Group and Avatar PK Saenchai will run it back.

The Thai pair engaged in a wild battle at ONE Lumpinee 11, with Komawut emerging the victor via split decision.

Now Avatar gets his chance at redemption less than two months after the thrilling first installment.

At the top of the international portion of the card, former Lumpinee Stadium world champion Yodlekpet Or Atchariya will look to make it three wins in as many outings under the ONE banner when he faces Bosnian veteran Denis Puric. The ultra-aggressive 28-year-old will have his hands full, however, as Puric is fresh from his first win as a ONE fighter over tough Russian Tagir Khalilov in October.

In MMA action, Russian finisher Ivan Parshikov will also look for his third straight win when he takes on China's Xia Lianyang.

Road to ONE: Mongolia winner Enkh-Orgil Baatarkhuu will lock horns with returning Filipino Rockie Bactol.

The first bout starts at 7.30pm at Lumpinee and Channel 7 shows live the programme from 8.30pm.
