ONE Championship returns to the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday 28th February for ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE.
In the main event, two-sport ONE world champion Stamp Fairtex is scheduled to defend her ONE Atomweight Kickboxing world title against Janet Todd.
After going 4-0 in MMA, the 22-year-old phenom has taken the world by storm, captivating audiences across the globe with her striking prowess and unmistakable charm.
Stamp was most recently in action at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW, where she finished Puja Tomar via a first-round TKO. Now she makes the quick turnaround to defend one of her prestigious belts.
Todd, a two-time Pan-American Muay Thai champion, challenged Stamp in early 2019 for the inaugural ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Championship, but ultimately fell short of victory after five close rounds. Despite the setback, Todd remains Stamp’s toughest test to date. The two now look to reprise their epic battle, this time with the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Championship on the line.
In the co-main event of the evening, reigning ONE Strawweight Kickboxing world champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao will take on Rocky Ogden for the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title.
Sam-A was spectacular in his most recent bout, a unanimous decision nod over Wang Junguang last December. Recognised as one of the most accomplished Muay Thai competitors of all time, Sam-A has put together a stellar professional career spanning more than 400 bouts. He joined ONE Super Series in 2018, and not long after became the inaugural ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion.
In a lightweight contest, former ONE World Title challenger Amir Khan will take on ONE Warrior Series contract winner Kimihiro Eto.
Khan, a Singaporean Muay Thai champion, has faced some of the biggest names in ONE Championship, including Eduard Folayang and Honorio Banario.
Eto, on the other hand, is a national Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling champion who has a penchant for notching impressive submissions.
Veteran Yoshihiro Akiyama returns to action against Sherif Mohamed in a welterweight MMA bout. Akiyama is looking for his first victory on the ONE Championship global stage against a seasoned opponent, while Mohamed looks to get back to the winner’s circle by downing a legend.
Top atomweight Mei Yamaguchi continues her march to the top of the weight class, this time by facing formidable Chinese adversary, Meng Bo.
Yamaguchi is known for her well-rounded striking and grappling skills, as well as veteran experience. She has faced the biggest names in her division throughout her career, challenging Angela Lee twice for the atomweight belt. Meng, meanwhile, is a winner of her last four bouts, three of which have come inside the distance.
Unbeaten bantamweight contender Troy Worthen has no doubt impressed thus far in his ONE Championship career, winning his first two bouts for the promotion by TKO. Worthen will take on Mark Fairtex Abelardo, a ONE Warrior Series contract winner.
Former ONE featherweight world champion Honorio Banario battles Thai superstar Shannon Wiratchai in a featherweight contest. Both Banario and Wiratchai are looking for statement-making wins to kick-start their year, but only one man will leave the ONE Circle with their hands raised in victory.
Fan-favourite Tiffany Teo makes her highly anticipated return to action against dangerous grappler Ayaka Miura. Teo’s most recent outing saw her claim victory over BJJ world champion Michelle Nicolini. Miura is coming off a scintillating performance against Maira Mazar earlier this month. Teo certainly knows how to deal with grapplers, but Miura is riding a wave of momentum into this contest that may prove tough to overcome.
Indian wrestling sensation Ritu Phogat goes for two-in-a-row in her budding MMA career when she locks horns with Wu Chiao Chen. Phogat sizzled in her ONE Championship debut late last year, when she finished Nam Hee Kim in the first round by TKO. Phogat will need to be at the top of her game against Wu, who is looking to make an impact in her ONE Championship debut.
In a ONE Super Series kickboxing contest, Hiroki Akimoto faces on Azwan Che Wil. Representing Evolve MMA in Singapore, Akimoto is coming off a thrilling victory over Kenny Tse last year. He will need every bit of power he can muster if he wants to stop his determined Malaysian foe.
Adrian Mattheis aims to bounce back from a tough loss to Stefer Rahardian by claiming victory over Hexigetu.
Local hero Radeem Rahman, the first Singaporean martial artist in ONE Championship, goes head-to-head with Jeff Chan.
