ONE: Next Gen II
ONE Championship is offering up a multi-faceted card with MMA and ONE Super Series action alike.
Previously announced bouts included the main event Muay Thai bantamweight bout with Saemapetch Fairtex versus Rittewada Petchyindee Academy. Plus, an MMA prizefight between Tang Kai versus Yoon Chang Min in the featherweight ranks.
Among the batch of newly announced fights, there are a pair of alternate bouts for the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing Grand Prix. Smokin’ Jo Nattawut tests skills against Yurik Davtyan plus Zhang Chunyu clashes with ONE debutant Dovydas Rimkus.
Based on the multitude of alternates that have been able to integrate into ONE’s Atomweight Grand Prix brackets, the victors of these Featherweight Super Series bouts could very well find themselves part of one of the biggest Kickboxing tournaments ever.
An intriguing MMA catchweight contest is also slated between a former ONE title challenger and a former Pancrase welterweight champion. Agilan Thani and Hiroyuki Tetsuka will collide inside the ONE Circle at 86 kilograms.
Thani’s first pro-MMA loss was in that aforementioned title bid; a ONE welterweight championship defeat to Ben Askren. He has posted up a 4-4 record since that Askren loss. But has only fallen to the division’s elite through that .500 stretch (Kiamrian Abbasov, Zebaztian Kadestam, Yushin Okami, Tyler McGuire).
The broadcast date of Tetsuka’s return to the ONE Circle comes one day shy of a full calendar year from his last bout. He aims to get back to the win column after a unanimous decision defeat to Murad Ramazanov in October last year.
ONE Super Series action kicks off the show in the form of a bantamweight Muay Thai fight. Han Zi Hao and Victor Pinto lock horns as they look to create a scintillating opening card contest for ONE: Next Gen II.
