Sexyama gets a shot at redemption at ONE: King of the Jungle

Sexyama back for his second ONE fight.

‘Sexyama’ Yoshihiro Akiyama will get a shot at redemption when he returns for ONE Championship in Singapore on Friday 28 February.

The former UFC star lost a decision to Agilan Thani in the co-main event of ONE: Legendary Quest in Shanghai.

The bout marked his return to MMA following a three and a half year break, but the young lion spoiled the occasion as he left the Baoshan Arena with a unanimous decision victory.

In the main event of ONE: King of the Jungle, Stamp Fairtex returns to her roots to defend ONE’s atomweight kickboxing title. The 22-year-old has gone 4-0 in MMA, but returns to face Janet Todd for a second time.

In the co-main event, reigning strawweight kickboxing champion, Sam-A Gaiyanghadao will take on Rocky Ogden of Australia for the strawweight Muay Thai title.

Singapore favourite Amir Khan will also be front and centre as he meets ONE Warrior Series contract winner Kimihiro Eto of Japan.
