Kingad faces Wada at ONE: ‘Hero’s Ascent’
Seven fights have been added to the ONE: ‘Hero’s Ascent’ card including a flyweight bout between Danny Kingad and Tatsumitsu Wada. The show takes place at the MOA Arena on January 25th and will be headlined by a flyweight title rematch between Geje Eustaquio and Adriano Moraes.
Kingad (10-1) was beaten by Moraes in this venue but it remains the only loss of his MMA career. The Team Lakay prospect has six ONE Championship wins and would be a top contender for a title shot if his team mate Eustaquio was to lose the belt.
Wada (20-9-2) submitted Filipino flyweight Eugene Toquero recently and has a win and a loss for ONE. This bout won’t be part of the flyweight Grand Prix which is set to get underway at ONE: ‘A New Era’ in Tokyo.
There will also be at least four Muay Thai fights on the card at ONE: ‘Hero’s Ascent’. Hard hitting Thai flyweight Rodtang Jitmuangnon will be looking to make a big impression after an impressive ONE Super Series debut, he faces Fahdi Khaled.
There’s also a ONE Super Series debut for multiple time Muay Thai champion Bangpleenoi Petchyindeeacademy. He holds a knockout win over reigning flyweight king Sam-A Gaiyanghadao but will be competing at bantamweight against Brown Pinas.
