In the first of two World Champion versus World Champion Super-Bouts at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday, 9 November, the queens of ONE’s women’s divisions will collide.

ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan will defend her belt against ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee.

The bout had been hinted at since before Xiong defended her belt for the second time against Samara Santos at ONE: BATTLE FOR THE HEAVENS, and was made official by ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong on Wednesday, 19 September.

If Xiong Jing Nan retains her ONE Strawweight World Title this Saturday, Angela Lee is next!

He also confirmed the anticipated showdown between ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes and ONE Interim Bantamweight World Champion Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon, who will battle to unify the belts in a thrilling rematch.

Fernandes’ record-breaking World Title run features a defense against Belingon in January 2016, but since that contest, the Team Lakay product has recorded six consecutive victories – culminating with his defeat of two-division ONE World Champion Martin Nguyen in July.

Expect further top-class bouts to be announced in the coming weeks, making ONE: HEART OF THE LION of the most stacked blockbuster cards in ONE history.
