Finding a home for his hands with relative ease, Anane was close to finishing things at the end of the first round when a stunning right dropped Fairtex. However, he didn’t have to wait too long for the win when a little over a minute into the second round, he found the target again – and this time there was no way back.
It’s a huge win for the teenager who moves to 34-5-1 in his professional career, and establishes himself in the ultra competitive ONE flyweight division.
Elsewhere on the card, there was another huge win for the MENA region when Mohammed Siasarani stunned Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong.
The Iranian was an underdog going into the bout with the number-two ranked featherweight Muay Thai contender, but was able to edge a decision in an absolute thriller.
Siasarani dropped his opponent for an eight-count in the second, and was then able to withstand everything thrown at him to secure the standout win of his career.
The 21-year-old secured his 22nd career win overall, and fourth straight since arriving in ONE – putting the rest of the division on notice in the process.
In the night’s main event Kompet Fairtex and Kongchai Chanaidonmueang went the distance, with the former earning a deserved unanimous decision victory. Dentungtong Singha Mawynn was able to come out on top following a three-round war with flyweight Denpayak Detpetsrithong, and Petpairin Sor Jor Tongprachin picked up a debut win thanks to an aggressive front-foot display against Kritpet PK Saenchai.
