With his debut win under his belt, the 32-year-old now faces Kacem as he goes in search of the ONE world title.
Standing in his way in the Lumpinee Stadium will be a 24-year-old Belarusian who has already made a mark in ONE.
His debut may not have been the start he wanted losing a split decision to Thai teenager Yodphupa Wimanair, but he was soon able to avenge that in style.
Less than two months later he won an astonishing rematch – picking himself up off the canvas no fewer than three times before knocking his opponent out cold with a string of well placed right hands.
All the elements are in place to make this an instant classic.
