The Open Media Workout was held at The Grounds KL yesterday, July 9th for the big event coming up in Friday, 12th of July 2019. Full force of the Malaysian fighters came and displayed their skills on stage as they perform their workout routine on stage.
Tha main event, three-time Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy faces legendary five-time kickboxing World Champion Giorgio Petrosyan once again in a ONE Featherweight World Grand Prix quarter-final which means that the winner will move on to the next stage for a chance at the coveted prize money of USD$1,000,000 grand prize. This fight is gonna be explosive for sure not only because of that prize money but also because during their May 2019 encounter, it was a very controversial outcome so expect the fighters to prove each other they are the winner for this bout.
Malaysian darling Jihin Radzuan will be fighting against Jomary Torres of the Philippines. This is a very important fight for Jihin after she lost from another Filipino fighter on her recent match so she needs a win with the home crowd at her back.
Last but definitely not the least, is a Muay Thai Super Series Bantamweight match between two Malaysians. Saiful Merican vs. Mohammed Bin Mahmoud. Although, Saiful started at One Championship with mma fight, he was a Muay Thai Champion. He had to stop for a while due to an injury in 2017. On the other hand, Mohammed Bin Mahmoud also known as Jordan Boy debut at One Championship last December 2018 with an impressive win. This is a match to watch out.
