The first event to take place in Singapore will be ONE: ‘Reign of Dynasties’. The event is set for next Friday night and will be headlined by a strawweight Muay Thai title fight between Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and Josh Tonna.

ONE: ‘Reign of Dynasties’ II is set for Singapore on October 16th. Later this month ONE: ‘Enter the Matrix’ will also take place in the country.

Since restrictions have started to ease following the Covid-19 pandemic ONE Championship has put on events in Shanghai and Bangkok. However they have all featured local fighters, with no-one able to fly in from overseas.

The Singapore cards will feature international fighters. Next Friday’s event has people coming in from Australia, China and Malaysia to compete as well as a strong contingent of local fighters.
