Itsuki Hirata will be on the ONE: ‘X’┬ácard. The Japanese stunner confirmed on Instagram that she would be fighting again on March 26th.

Hirata did not reveal the identity of her opponent:


She was one of the favourites for the atomweight Grand Prix but was forced to withdraw after falling ill just days before the semi final. Although the 22 year old pulled out of the tournament she remains undefeated but is currently unranked.

Grand Prix winner Stamp Fairtex is challenging champion Angela Lee in an atomweight title fight which headlines ONE: ‘X’. Also on that card #2 ranked Denice Zamboanga is rematching #3 ranked Seo Hee Ham.

So it will be interesting to see who Hirata is matched with but after an anticlimactic end to 2021 she will be hoping to get off to a winning start this year.
