In a highly anticipated clash at ONE Friday Fights 46: Tawanchai vs. Superbon on December 22, the formidable "The Queen" Phetjeeja Lukjaoporongtom faced the daunting challenge of taking on the widely regarded pound-for-pound striking queen, Anissa "C18" Meksen, for the ONE Interim Women’s Atomweight Kickboxing World Title. The stakes were high, and the pressure immense, but the 21-year-old Thai sensation rose to the occasion, delivering a performance that captivated the global audience.

Throughout five intense rounds at the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, Phetjeeja showcased resilience, tactical brilliance, and an unwavering spirit. Despite facing the relentless pace set by the French-Algerian superstar in the early rounds, "The Queen" stood her ground and gradually turned the tide.

Meksen, known for her ferocious approach, engaged in a heated exchange with Phetjeeja, drawing reactions from the Thai phenom with every shot traded in close quarters. The high-octane pace continued into the second round, but Phetjeeja's increased output forced "C18" to alter her strategy. Seizing the opportunity, Phetjeeja took control, launching precise attacks straight down the middle.

Executing simple yet effective punch-kick combinations, Phetjeeja strategically accumulated damage as the bout progressed into the championship rounds. Demonstrating that offense could indeed be the best defense, she read Meksen's attacks with textbook precision, maintaining a sharp and calculated approach until the final bell.

In the fourth and fifth stanzas, "The Queen" elevated her intensity, countering Meksen's attempts to slow her down with massive hook shots and powerful rights. Undeterred, the Thai phenom remained sharp, operating behind her trademark right hand and outworking her opponent.

The judges unanimously awarded the victory to Phetjeeja, crowning her the ONE Interim Women’s Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion and marking the pinnacle of a perfect year in the world’s largest martial arts organization. With this signature win, her professional record soared to an impressive 207-6, maintaining an undefeated 5-0 record within ONE Championship and setting the stage for a highly anticipated unification bout with divisional queen Janet Todd in the upcoming year. Phetjeeja Lukjaoporongtom's triumph stands as a testament to her skill, determination, and ascent in the world of elite kickboxing.
