Strawweight fight between Bokang Masunyane and Rene Catalan added to ONE: ‘Big Bang’
Catalan (6-3-0-1) was last seen in action at ONE: ‘Masters of Fate’ where he came up short in a strawweight title shot. The 41 year old is a multiple time wushu world champion.
The flyweight fight between #2 ranked Danny Kingad and #3 ranked Kairat Akhmetov has been nixed. One of the Filipino’s cornermen tested positive for Covid-19.
Islam Abasov is also off the card according to reports. Iranian heavyweight Amir Aliakbari revealed that the promotion was scrambling to find him an opponent at the last minute.
Kingad (14-2) has only ever lost to flyweight Grand Prix winner Demetrious Johnson and flyweight champion Adriano Moraes. The two are set to face off in 2021 and he will be hoping to secure a second title shot with a win here.
