Walter Goncalves will enter the ONE Championship ring for a third time when he meets Jonathan Haggerty at ONE: 157 in Singapore on Friday.
The May 20 Muay Thai fight will mark Goncalves’ third opportunity to secure that first promotional win as he dropped a split decision loss to Rodtang Jitmuangnon in October 2019, followed by a knockout loss to Kohei “Momotaro” Kodera in December 2020.
Will the third time be the charm?
ONE Championship officials spoke with Walter Goncalves today at faceoffs where the Brazilian was asked if he felt “unlucky” in his career with the promotion thus far.
“Yeah, I was a bit unlucky against Momotaro,” Goncalves said. “I got injured but you know, I’m back to the game. I didn’t let that shake me and yeah, I’m on top of my game.”
