07 February 2018 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced its return to Malaysia’s bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur. “ONE: Visions of Victory” is set to ignite the Axiata Stadium with an evening of authentic martial arts action.

While a main event is yet to be announced, ONE Championship has revealed a handful of compelling bouts featuring the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent. One of the bouts is between Hisyam “Zephyrus” Samsudin of Malaysia and Jerome S. Paye of Liberia.

Samsudin is a former WBF Asia-Pacific Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion. He trains at the highly-regarded Borneo Tribal Squad with former female strawweight talent Ann “Athena” Osman and coach AJ “Pyro” Lias Mansor.

With heavy handed strikes, Samsudin likes to pepper opponents, utilizing his world-class boxing base to break them down. His next assignment is against a Liberian martial artist.

On the other hand, Paye made his ONE Championship debut in February 2016 against China’s Li Hao Jie. In the bout, the Liberian fighter showcased a well-rounded set of techniques, stifling his opponent with an array of striking combinations.

With the ability to make bouts difficult for any opponent, Paye has shown incredible heart and determination in his time inside the ONE Championship cage. This time, Paye will take on a Malaysian opponent.
