LOOK: Thai fighter gives Pinoy opponent gift ahead of fight
Thailand's Kritsada Kongsrichai, left, and Rabin Catalan of the Philippines exchange pleasantries days before their fight in Bangkok.

A common misconception about the fight game is that when two people are set to do battle inside the ring or the cage, they're supposed to have ill-will towards each other. 

This, of course, has been proven to be false many times over. 

Case in point: ONE Championship strawweight fighters Rabin Catalan of the Philippines and Kritsada Kongsrichai of Thailand. 

Days before their fight at ONE: Warriors of the World in Bangkok, Catalan and Kongsrichai exchanged pleasantries, and Kongsrichai even gave some of the Pinoys a pre-fight gift and posed for some photos. 

A definite show of true sportsmanship. 


ONE Championship: Warriors of the World happens on Saturday, December 9th at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

Catch the action LIVE starting 9:30 PM on S+A channel 23!
