Jonathan Di Bella To Defend Kickboxing World Title Against Danial Williams At ONE Fight Night 15

Jonathan Di Bella celebrates winning the ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Championship

Undefeated ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Champion Jonathan Di Bella is set to make the much-anticipated first defense of his gold.

On Friday, October 6, the Italian-Canadian phenom will put his belt on the line against dangerous Thai-Australian scrapper “Mini T” Danial Williams in the co-main event of ONE Fight Night 15 on Prime Video live in U.S. primetime.

This will be Di Bella’s first appearance since he captured the strawweight kickboxing crown in spectacular fashion, securing an electrifying decision win over Zhang Peimian in one of 2022’s best striking showdowns.

With his lightning-fast hand speed, crafty footwork, and pristine 11-0 professional record, the 26-year-old from Montreal has all the makings of a long-reigning World Champion – if not an all-time great.

However, Williams is aiming to derail his opponent’s hype train.

After coming up short in his ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title challenge of Superlek Kiatmoo9 earlier this year, “Mini T” is dropping down to his natural weight class and taking another shot at gold.

The former WMC Muay Thai World Champion has repeatedly showcased elite skills and incredible toughness while establishing himself as one of the most feared – and fearless – athletes on ONE’s roster.

A veteran of several high-profile Muay Thai, MMA, and kickboxing battles in the organization, the 30-year-old has never shied away from a challenge and always puts on a show.

On October 6, Williams will hope his never-say-die attitude is the kryptonite for Di Bella’s crispy-clean technique.

However this World Title matchup plays out, fans are in for an intriguing clash of styles and some of the finest striking on the planet.
