Danny Kingad withdraws from bout vs Hu Yong due to injury


Danny “The King” Kingad has unfortunately decided to withdraw from his upcoming fight against “Wolf Warrior” Hu Yong, scheduled for ONE Fight Night 15: Tawanchai vs. Superbon on October 7 at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

The flyweight contender, ranked no. 3, sustained an ankle injury during his training, which compelled him to pull out from the scheduled bout.

“I was eagerly anticipating the opportunity to compete and demonstrate my skills in the ring. However, my current physical condition prevents me from performing at my best and poses a risk to my health and well-being,” he stated.

Kingad had been aiming to secure consecutive wins following his unanimous decision victory over Eko Roni Saputra at ONE Fight Night 7: Lineker vs. Andrade II last February. A further triumph might have boosted his chances of being considered for the next shot at ONE Flyweight World Champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.

Nevertheless, ‘The King’ is now concentrating on making a full recovery as he continues his pursuit of the championship title.

In light of this development, Saputra will step in to replace Kingad in the match against Hu Yong.

Despite this setback, ONE Fight Night 15 will still feature a clash between two of the world’s premier Muay Thai fighters. ONE Muay Thai Featherweight World Champion Tawanchai PK Saenchai will go head-to-head against former kickboxing champion Superbon Singha Mawynn.
