ONE Championship is officially back on track, as its CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong announced the organization’s bold plans for the next few months.
The Home Of Martial Arts plans to hold 10 events in a three-month stretch, starting 31 July with ONE: No Surrender in Bangkok, Thailand.
Sityodtong made the announcement on his Facebook page.
The amiable executive marked the 14th, 21st, and 28th of August; the 11th, 18th, and 25th of September; and the 9th, 16th, and 30th of October as the event days.
All of those shows will remain behind closed doors, but will broadcast to over 150 countries across the world.
“Without the extraordinary grit and creativity of my team at ONE Championship, nothing would have been possible,” Sityodtong said.
“The world is suffering through the worst crisis in 100 years. Most borders are still shut everywhere as COVID-19 continues to ravage the global economy. Thank you to the greatest team in the world for always finding a way!”
Save for ONE: No Surrender, the locations and bout card have yet to be announced. However, with the way the card is looking for the upcoming show in Bangkok, expectations are pretty high.
The main event in Thailand features the trilogy bout between ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon and his challenger Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy.
The ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title will likewise be at stak,e as Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy defends his strap against “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex.
It’s not only Rodtang and Petchdam who will complete a trilogy, however. “The Killer Kid” Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong and Superbon — two men who have made legendary careers outside of ONE — will settle their own rivalry in a super-fight on the global stage.
