Two ONE Super Series World Titles On The Line At ONE: AGE OF DRAGONS

Ilias Ennahachi holds the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title belt

ONE Championship will return to Beijing, China on Saturday, 16 November with a stacked card featuring two World Title bouts.

At ONE: AGE OF DRAGONS, ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Champion Ilias “Tweety” Ennahachi (35-3) will make the first defense of his belt in the headline attraction.

Just like in his promotional debut back in August, the Dutchman will set foot on his opponent’s home soil as he will meet KLF World Champion “Metal Storm” Wang Wenfeng (40-7-1).

This will be a rubber match after Ennahachi won their first bout by decision in his homeland in 2014, and Wang took the rematch on the judges’ scorecards in China back in 2017.

Now they will go to battle one more time for up to five rounds to determine the world’s best kickboxer in their weight class.

Gold will also be on the line in the co-main event, as two heavy hitters will clash for the inaugural ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Title.

This contest will feature the return of Tarik “The Tank” Khbabez (46-5-1), the Dutch-Moroccan knockout artist who has built an unrivaled 4-0 record in ONE Super Series.

He will face another man who is known for his finishing ability in the form of Ukraine’s Roman Kryklia (44-7).

Both men are kickboxing World Champions, but now they will compete for the top prize in their sport at the Cadillac Arena.

Also at ONE: AGE OF DRAGONS, “The Hero” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex (201-72-4) will make his return against Sasha Moisa (39-8).

In addition to that, Indian wrestling star Ritu Phogat will make her long-awaited mixed martial arts debut and unbeaten ISKA Welterweight World Champion Jorina Baars (46-0-3) makes her grand premiere in The Home Of Martial Arts.
