0

ONE Championship has added two additional title bouts to its ONE: Unstoppable Dreams card in Singapore on 18 May.

Reigning featherweight and lightweight champion Martin Nguyen (10-2) will make a quick turn around and defend his featherweight title in a rematch with Christian Lee (9-1).

The 29-year-old Nguyen is coming off a five-round decision loss to bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes in Bangkok, but is getting right back into action.

Lee is riding a four-fight win streak and will be competing for the title alongside his older sister Angela, who defends her atomwewight belt in a rematch with Japanese veteran Mei Yamaguchi.

A third title will see ONE crown an inaugural ONE Super Series Muay Thai Flyweight World Champion, as Sam-A Gaiyanghadao goes head to head with Sergio Wielzen in a kickboxing bout.

Sam-A is a multiple Lumpinee Stadium champion who is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world. As a Muay Thai practitioner, he built a record of 364-46-9, and was known for his strong defense and counter offense.

Sergio “Little One” Wielzen of Suriname is a Dutch-based martial artist training out of Amsterdam. With a professional kickboxing record of 45-18-2, Lion Fight Muay Thai world lightweight champion Wielzen has built a reputation as being an explosive striker with stunning knockout power.

ONE has also added a lightweight bout to the 18 May card with Shinya Aoki taking on Rasul Yakhyaev, who recently snapped a three-fight skid with a win over Shannon Wiratchai.
