The fight will be Ennahachi’s third championship bout in ONE. Ennahachi won the belt in August of 2019, stopping Petcham Petchyindee Academy in the third round with punches. He defended it three months later when he defeated Wang Wenfeng.
The fight in February will be Ennahachi’s first in over a year.
Superlek has been given the kickboxing fight after four wins in ONE’s Muay Thai division. His last fight was in September, where he took a decision win over Fahdi Khaled.
