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 the 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 matches is between Danny “The King” Kingad, 22, of the Philippines and Gianni Subba, 25, of Malaysia.
A top flyweight talent from the famed Team Lakay of Baguio City, Kingad is a regional wushu champion with a wushu record of 29-1 and a martial artist with a professional record of 8-1. He is a true warrior from the mountains of the Philippines and one of the top prospects to come out of the country.
Kingad is a tremendous striker who possesses well-rounded grappling skills. In his most recent bout, he suffered the first defeat of his career after being submitted by reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes, 28, in the first round.
On the other hand, Subba is a flyweight talent who spends time carefully honing his craft with talented teammates at Bali MMA in Indonesia including his brother Keanu Subba, 23, who is also currently signed with ONE Championship. A winner of six of his last seven bouts, Gianni is a seasoned athlete with a stellar 9-2 clip in his young career.
Out of Gianni’s 9 wins, 5 have come either by submission or by crowd-pleasing knockout. In his next assignment, a crafty wushu specialist from Team Lakay poses a stern challenge.
