Arjan Bhullar Vs. Mauro Cerilli Removed From ONE: DAWN OF HEROES

Arjan Bhullar 4

The highly-anticipated heavyweight duel between Indian wrestling sensation Arjan “Singh” Bhullar and Italian mixed martial arts veteran Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli has been scratched from ONE: DAWN OF HEROES.

The two heavyweights were set to go head-to-head at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines tonight, 2 August, but Cerilli was not medically cleared to compete.

Because athlete safety is of the utmost priority at ONE Championship, the heavyweights will have to wait until Cerilli is medically fit to compete before meeting in the Circle.

Bhullar, an Olympic Games freestyle wrestler, took the news that he would no longer be making his debut in The Home of Martial Arts with dignity.

“I’m very disappointed not to be able to put on a show for all of my fans and loved ones,” Bhullar said in a recent Instagram post. “[I] was extremely well prepared for this fight and can’t thank my team enough for their sacrifices during preparation.”

“Singh,” however, still looks forward to showing his wrestling pedigree in ONE.

“Every member of [ONE] has been extremely respectful and supportive through this ordeal,” the former Olympian said. “My first experience going through fight week with them couldn’t have gone better. I can’t wait to debut in the near future.”

Fans can watch the stacked ONE: DAWN OF HEROES event tonight on the ONE Super APP or ONE YouTube Channel.
