So now you’ve got the backstory on this explosive, kicking force of nature, let’s count down Superbon’s Top 5 Muay Thai / Kickboxing Finishes! (in descending order)
5. Vs. Jomthong Chuwattana – Kunlun Fight 56 (Jan. 1, 2017)
On New Year’s Day 2017, Superbon defeated Cedric Manhoef at the 2016 Kunlun World Max Tournament Semifinals to improve his record to 93-31, and fight Jomthong Chuwattana who was 200-36-4, in the finals on the same day. Therefore, this was the classic Thai vs. Thai affair.
At the start of round 1, Jomthong landed a teep, and Superbon answered back with his own teep. Other than that, the round overall seemed pretty even, with the two appearing relaxed, and exchanging shots.
In round 2, things started heating up, with Superbon countering Jomthong’s teep at 0:10 with a heavy punching combination. Jomthong tried responding with his own punches at 0:13, but Superbon managed to sneak in his own punches followed by his signature right high kick.
The two continued exchanging heavy blows, and Superbon stunned Jomthong with a few face punches before knocking him down with a hook-cross combination at 1:02.
At 1:16, Jomthong survived the count, only to be met with another flurry of Superbon’s punches. Jomthong continued weathering the storm, and tried fighting back, but to no avail.
Eventually, Superbon caught Jomthong’s round kick at 2:05 and knocked him down again, this time with a left hand. Nonetheless, the referee did not give the 10 count, and Superbon continued overwhelming Jomthong with punches until the end of the round.
In round 3, the two embraced, and the pace was much more relaxed, akin to the pace of round 1.
Superbon continued pressuring Jomthong with punching combinations, but Jomthong countered with a left hook at 0:43. Other than that, Superbon appeared to be the busier fighter.
At 2:02, the referee paused the fight due to a cut on Jomthong’s right eyebrow. Based on the commentary, and the replay, the cut possibly came about in round 2, becoming aggravated in round 3 by jabs from Superbon. Nevertheless, the fight continued, and the pace started to accelerate. The two exchanged punches, but Superbon was getting the better of the exchanges.
At 2:39, Superbon evaded Jomthong’s punches and countered with a right hand that caused Jomthong to fall onto the canvas face first. The referee immediately called the fight at 2:40 of round 3.
With this victory, Superbon became the 2016 Kunlun World Max Tournament Champion and qualified for the same event in 2017.

To advance into Kunlun Fight 2016 World Max Tournament Final 8, Superbon, who was 76-31-5 at the time, had to go through Khayal Dzhaniev, who was 25-5.
One of Dzhaniev’s wins was a controversial decision against Superbon’s mentor at the time, the legendary Buakaw, so to say that Dzhaniev was another opponent in Superbon’s way was an understatement.
Round 1 began with Dzhaniev throwing a one-two-hook combination once the bell rang. Nonetheless, Superbon remained composed and did what Superbon always does, which was keeping his opponent at a distance with long-range weapons to land the right kick.
Dzhaniev threw some heavy punches, but overall, they didn’t do much damage as Superbon was defending well.
With 18 seconds left in the first round, Khayal attempted to punch Superbon, but Superbon defended and countered with a clean knee to the body. He followed up with a right teep, which was caught by Dzhaniev, but Superbon retracted the leg, and with that same leg, he fired one roundhouse kick after another.
He landed 5 consecutive roundhouse kicks before Dzhaniev could even make contact with a one-two punch. The one-two was defended by Superbon, who landed another high kick to end the round.
Round 2 saw Dzhaniev picking up the pace with his punches. Superbon was countering with body knees, but accidentally kneed the Russian in the groin at 0:54. As an apology, Superbon attempted to hug Dzhaniev, but the Russian shoved him off.
At 1:13, Superbon landed another knee, checked a low kick, and landed another round kick at 1:15.
At 1:23, Superbon landed three consecutive round kicks, with the first two being partially blocked by Dzhaniev but the last one knocking him down at 1:26. Dzhaniev failed to make the count, and the fight ended at 1:41 into round 2.
3. Vs. Chen Zhicheng – Kunlun Fight 40 (Mar. 25, 2016)
In his first match of the Kunlun Fight World Max 2016 Group E Tournament, the 74-31-5 Superbon faced Sanda fighter, Chen Zhicheng of China (record unknown).
Round 1 began with Superbon appearing very relaxed and composed, and countering Chen’s punches with body knees.
At 0:30, Chen clinched, held onto Superbon’s knee, and lifted and dumped Superbon onto the canvas. Superbon got back up immediately, and continued in a composed way, landing round kicks at will.
At the 1-minute mark, Chen tried a round kick of his own which was caught by Superbon, who returned the favor by sweeping him to the mat.
At 1:28, the Sanda fighter caught one of Superbon’s kicks and swept him back. Superbon got back up, and although Chen landed an axe kick and roundhouse kick of his own at 1:34 and 1:36 respectively, Superbon landed his round kicks right back, and they were much more powerful. He even landed a double round kick at 1:48.
Soon after, Chen caught Superbon’s round kick and swept him again at 2:05. At 2:35, Chen took Superbon to the canvas one more time after catching a knee from the clinch. Right after the bell, Superbon landed another round kick.
Round 2 began with Superbon landing a high round kick at 0:05. Chen caught it, but Superbon pulled it back before Chen could sweep him.
At 0:14, Superbon came in hot, landing 6 consecutive high round kicks. At 0:45, Superbon hopped in and landed a body knee that hurt Chen. Even though Chen landed a variety of kicks of his own like axe kicks and sidekicks, he was constantly getting walked down and his kicks weren’t as effective as Superbon’s round kicks.
At 1:37, Superbon clinched with Chen and landed three knees. At 2:04, Chen tried a spinning hook kick, but it was blocked by Superbon and Chen fell. Superbon was overall stalking Chen and landing knees, punches, and round kicks. Chen tried another spinning hook kick at 1:39, but again, he fell.
In round 3. Chen missed with a hook and exposed his back. He tried a no-look spinning back fist, but as he was doing so, Superbon caught him with a head round kick at 0:10. Chen went for broke with all kinds of flashy attacks, but characteristically like his mentor Buakaw, Superbon stayed squared, and disciplined in his stance, walked Chen down, and landed his own shots. Even though they were basic compared to Chen’s moves, they did much more damage.
At 0:49, Superbon sent Chen to the canvas with a right teep. Superbon kept the pressure on, and sent Chen to the canvas with another right teep at 1:31.
Chen had no viable answer to Superbon’s continuous forward momentum, and Superbon followed two straight punches with a left high kick at 2:52 that knocked Chen down and this time out cold, prompting the referee to stop the fight at 2:57.
With this victory, Superbon advanced to the Group E Tournament Finals.
2. Vs. Zhang Chunyu – Kunlun Fight 35 (Dec. 19, 2015)
In the 2015 Kunlun Fight World Max Tournament, the 72-30-5 Superbon faced the 43-16 Zhang Chunyu of China in the opening round, not to mention that Zhang also fought Buakaw the year before.
Round 1 started as a feeling-out process. At 0:13, Superbon countered a Zhang punch with a switch kick. Zhang read it, then Superbon did the same switch kick again, only to be swept by Zhang at 0:17.
At first, the two were landing with around the same volume, but Superbon was the one that kept pressing forward. Zhang became more hesitant with his strikes, and it was clear that Superbon was getting the better of the exchanges.
Within the first 10 seconds of round 2, Zhang came out aggressively and was now the one pressing forward with heavy shots, but Superbon quickly regained his momentum, and quickly became the one winning the exchanges again.
At 1:22, Superbon faked with the right leg and followed with a left high kick that knocked Zhang out cold, ending the fight at 1:24 into the second round.
With this victory, Superbon advanced to the semi finals to fight future Glory Lightweight Champion Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong.

At 0:17 of round 1, Superbon landed a beautiful, right high kick. This set the tone for the remainder of the fight, as Superbon constantly kept Petrosyan at a distance with long range weapons like the jab and teep to land the right roundhouse kick.
Petrosyan tried closing the distance to land punches but was barely successful, and when he did close the gap, Superbon would clinch him, knee him, and reset.
Round 2 was pretty much the same. Petrosyan caught Superbon’s teep at 3:20 and tried to sweep him, but failed. At 3:29, Petrosyan tried coming in with a double-jab cross combination, only for Superbon to retreat and counter with a right body kick.
