Saemapetch faces Thai compatriot and #3-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Kulabdam "Left Meteorite" Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai in the main event of ONE: FULL BLAST, a tape-delayed event from the Singapore Indoor Stadium which airs this Friday, 28 May.
The #1-ranked contender at bantamweight, Saemapetch says every victory brings him closer to a rematch with reigning ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao.
"I would say each and every fight is important for me. At this stage, every win matters, and I'm looking to bring home this victory against a tough opponent," Saemapetch said.
"Of course, I'm looking for another opportunity at the world title. That's my goal. I was born for this. I was born to be a champion."
Against Kulabdam, Saemapetch faces a worthy opponent. Kulabdam is a two-time former Lumpinee Stadium World Champion, and one of the most dangerous Muay Thai fighters on the roster.
Kulabdam earned the nickname "Left Meteorite" for the incredible power in his straight left, and a series of impressive knockouts at Bangkok's prestigious Channel 7 Stadium. He is one of the most dynamic young strikers with an explosive, fan-friendly style that produces exhilarating finishes.
Saemapetch knows how dangerous Kulabdam is, but remains confident he will emerge on top.
"He's very strong and obviously very dangerous. He has powerful punches. But I think I'm faster than he is, so that's an area I want to exploit. I'll use my speed to my advantage," Saemapetch said.
"I'm not taking him lightly, by any means. I'm confident I'm going to get the victory. One thing is for certain, I will give it my best, win or lose."
ONE: FULL BLAST features a mix of exciting martial arts contests for fans who crave action. Also seeing time in the Circle are fighters such as "The Hunter" Xie Wei, Edward "The Ferocious" Kelly, and kickboxing star Santino Verbeek.
Saemapetch is excited to showcase his skills once again on the global stage of ONE Championship.
"I'm proud to represent Thailand on the global stage. That's one of my biggest motivations to compete at this level, to bring honor and glory to my country," Saemapetch said.
