The September 24th show goes down from Singapore Indoor Stadium. A card that is already shaping up to be another top-notch offering from ONE.
Christian Lee will again defend his lightweight crown inside the ONE Circle. The Warrior will clash with Ok Rae Yoon who is the number three lightweight as of this writing.
Lee is riding a six-fight win streak with a pair of consecutive first-round knockouts bookending that stretch. His last bout was in April at ONE on TNT II. An outing where Christian Lee finished Timofey Nastyukhin with strikes in seventy-three seconds.
Ok has put together four consecutive victories and has gone 2-0 under the ONE banner so far. Yoon has garnered wins over Marat Gafurov as well as Eddie Alvarez through the ONE on TNT series in April.
In the co-feature bout, Capitan Petchyindee Academy defends his bantamweight world kickboxing championship against Mehdi Zatout.
Capitan aims to defend his gold for the first time after securing the crown in January. That championship-winning effort came via second-round stoppage against Alaverdi Ramazanov.
Zatout has back-to-back wins under the ONE banner as a Muay Thai fighter and a Kickboxer. He now directs his focus to his first title shot within the promotion.
Also in this title fight trifecta, ONE strawweight kingpin Joshua Pacio will make his long-awaited return. He tests skills in the ONE Circle with the weight category’s number one contender. A man who is a familiar foe in Yosuke Saruta.
Pacio enters this trilogy fight riding a three-fight win streak since losing to Saruta via split decision. That loss transpired during their first bout in January 2019.
Saruta looks to win the rubber match after compiling back-to-back victories. Momentum gathered since being finished by Pacio in the fourth frame of their April 2019 rematch.
Prior to these announcements, the only previously discussed bout for ONE: Revolution was a reported heavyweight affair. One between a possibly debuting Marcus Buchecha and Thomas Narmo.
