Shannon Wiratchai is a late addition to this month’s ONE: ‘Enter the Dragon’ card. The Thai lightweight will face Iuri Lapicus at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 17th.
Lapicus (12-0) has initially been schedule to face Amir Khan. But the Singaporean was instead offered a second chance in the ONE Lightweight Grand Prix after an injury to Ariel Sexton.
Instead the undefeated Italian finds himself facing Wiratchai (9-4-0-1). The Thai holds a 2015 win over Khan but has lost three out of his last four fights.
Their lightweight bout will be the third fight on the prelims. In total there are 16 bouts on the card at ONE: ‘Enter the Dragon’ which is headlined by a lightweight title match between Shinya Aoki and Christian Lee.
Meanwhile Nieky Holzken faces fellow Dutchman Regian Eersel with the inaugural lightweight kickboxing belt on the line. The card will also see Sage Northcutt make his promotional debut, taking on Cosmo Alexandre in a welterweight matchup.
