Danny Kingad-Tatsumitsu Wada bout headlines ONE: Hero’s Ascent undercard


Besides the main event bout between ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje Eustaquio and Adriano Moraes, another Team Lakay fighter will be in the card for ONE: Hero’s Ascent.

Danny Kingad (10-1) takes on Tatsumitsu Wada (20-9-2) on Friday, January 25 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Kingad is on a four-fight winning streak, last tasting defeat against Moraes back in November of 2017.

Wada, on the other hand, is one of the brightest young stars of Japan, winning nine of his last 10 bouts. His last loss came via a split decision at the hands of Fil-Aussie Reece McLaren back in July of 2018.

Besides this, six other bouts were announced.

Lightweights Sung Jong Lee (4-3) and Kai Tang (8-2) face each other in a three-round lightweight bout while 125ers Egi Rozten (2-0) and Himanshu Kaushik (4-3) duke it out in a three-round affair as well.

Completing the card are four Muay Thai bouts — Fahdi Khaled versus Rodtang Jitmuangnon, Brown Pinas versus Bangpleenoi Petchyindee Academy, Elias Mahmoudi versus Yukinori Ogasawara, and Mohammad Bin Mahmoud versus Hiroaki Suzuki.
