Kingad aims to sustain streak on ONE Fight Night 15

Danny “The King” Kingad aims to maintain his winning streak as he reenters the Circle at ONE Fight Night 15: Tawanchai vs. Superbon on October 7 at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

The no. 3-ranked flyweight contender is set to face the formidable “Wolf Warrior” Hu Yong as he strives to move closer to another shot at the gold.

“I’m excited. I’m aware that Hu Yong is a highly skilled and dangerous fighter, so I’m diligently preparing for him and his strategies,” he said.

Kingad’s recent accomplishment was a notable unanimous decision victory against Eko Roni Saputra at ONE Fight Night 7: Lineker vs. Andrade II last February. He recognizes that a triumph could effectively place him back in the conversation for a challenge at the ONE Flyweight World Championship, currently held by Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.

“My goal is to regain World Title contention, and I understand that securing another victory here would position me favorably to compete for the belt,” he stated.

However, this doesn’t imply that the Team Lakay contender is underestimating his Chinese adversary.

He has valid reasons to exercise caution, given that “Wolf Warrior” is on a two-fight winning spree, which includes a knockout triumph over Team Lakay veteran and former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio at ONE 164: Pacio vs. Brooks in December of last year.

Nevertheless, “The King” maintains unwavering confidence in his abilities and remarked, “I have faith in my skills, and I’m eager to challenge myself against him.”

This flyweight showdown is just one of the many bouts to watch out for in this stacked card, with the main event featuring two of the finest Muay Thai fighters globally.
