ONE: ‘Century’ to go ahead despite typhoon hitting Tokyo
A typhoon is set to hit Tokyo tomorrow leading to the cancellation of several sporting events, including some Rugby World Cup group games. But the historic ONE: ‘Century’ card will go ahead as planned.
ONE Championship confirmed this evening that both events would definitely go ahead:
Sunday will be the biggest day in ONE Championship’s history. The morning card is set to be televised live by TNT in the U.S. and will feature the likes of Demetrious Johnson, Angela Lee and Christian Lee.
The afternoon card is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between Aung La Nsang and Brandon Vera. Meanwhile Giorgio Petrosyan faces Samy Sana in the finals of the Featherweight Kickboxing Grand Prix with $1million USD in prize money on the line for the winner.
It would have been a huge blow to ONE Championship if this event had been cancelled or postponed. So fighters, fans and everyone involved in putting together this epic day of fighting will be relieved to hear that the show will go on.
