Ismail Khan will be handed another chance to impress at ONE Friday Fights 54. He has been matched with Yryskeldi Duisheev in a battle between two undefeated flyweights at Lumpinee Stadium this week.

Khan (7-0) has already won twice on these shows. Last time out he beat Rabindra Dhant by decision at ONE Friday Fights 45and if the Pakistani can make it three in a row a ONE Championship contract potentially awaits.

Duisheev (9-0) beat Magomed Magomedov at ONE Friday Fights 21. He also holds victories over some experienced flyweights on the highly competitive Russian scene.

Best of the rest

The other MMA fight on the card pits Ryosuke Honda (12-3-1) against Sanzhar Zakirov (11-0) in the strawweight division. That will be the first fight of the night at Lumpinee Stadium.

Two female atomweights who are based long term in Thailand will also go head to head. Fairtex’s Celeste Hansen has been booked to face Phuket Fight Club’s Francisca Vera.
