The 23-year-old was due to face Kairat “The Kazakh” Akhmetov, but the former ONE Flyweight World Champion was forced to withdraw with an injury. Instead, Australia’s Reece “Lightning” McLaren will compete in his place.

The winner of that match will move on to the tournament final at ONE: CENTURY on 13 October, where they will face whoever gets their hand raised when Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson faces Tatsumitsu “The Sweeper” Wada later on the main card.

McLaren was scheduled to meet Yuya “Little Piranha” Wakamatsu on 2 August, but the Japanese athlete will now face Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio.

The former ONE Flyweight World Champion from Baguio City will join his training partner, Kingad, on the card – as well as other teammates Eduard “Landslide” Folayang, Honorio “The Rock” Banario, and Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly – following his win against Kim Kyu Sung in May.
