ONE Championship’s road to new normalcy kicked off in a grand way over the weekend in Shanghai, China.
The largest martial arts organization in the world held ONE Hero Series 13 on June 20 and ONE Hero Series 14 the next day — their first events since ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE this past February.
It was a big step, but the promotion has made it no secret that they are taking the necessary measures to start holding shows on a regular basis once again.
“We at ONE Championship are delighted to once again host the world’s most exciting martial arts events. I would like to personally thank all the fans for their continued support for our organization and our athletes,” Hua Fung Teh, Group President of ONE Championship, said.
“Shanghai served as the perfect backdrop for the prestigious ONE Hero Series, which aims to showcase the absolute best in rising young martial arts talent from China.”
Ze Lang Zha Xi made it two wins in a row in OHS as he bested newcomer “The Little Monster” Liang Hui via unanimous decision in the main event of the OHS 13.
A day later, it was Xu Liu who took the spotlight as he outpointed “The Young King” Zhao Xiao Yu in their ONE Super Series kickboxing bout en route to a unanimous decision victory, his first in the organization.
The back-to-back card also featured ONE kickboxing veterans “The Dragon King” Fu Qing Nan and “The Great Sage” Wei Zi Qin, and mixed martial artists Zhang Ze Hao, Wang Zhen, and Li Zhe.
Like their last event in Singapore, OHS 13 and 14 were held with the highest of safety measures in mind and could serve as a blueprint for the events moving forward.
“By enforcing strict safety and sanitary measures, we made sure to prioritize the health and well-being of everyone who made these back-to-back events a huge success,” Teh said.
“As a result, ONE Hero Series was able to share the very best of martial arts with the world, showcasing the power of the human spirit.”
