The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), will return to Malaysia’s bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur. On March 9, 2018, “ONE: Visions of Victory” will ignite the Axiata Stadium with another evening of authentic martial arts action.
In the main event, Filipino-American Reece “Lightning” McLaren, 26, of Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia will face Gianni Subba, 25, of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They will battle it out in three five-minute rounds in the flyweight division.
In the fourth match on the main card, Danny “The King” Kingad, 22, of Baguio City, Philippines will face Sotir “The Trouble” Kichukov, 27, of Pomorie Bulgaria. They will compete in the catchweight division.
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 in the first round.
Looking forward to redeeming himself, Kingad will return to the ONE Championship cage facing Kichukov. A Max Fight Bantamweight Champion, Kichukov has 13 wins and 7 losses. Of his 13 career victories, 10 of them have come by stoppage.
After nearly a year away from ONE Championship, Kichukov made his return to ONE Championship in January 2017 and fought “The Southern Eagle” Ma Hao Bin of China. The Bulgarian fighter who is now based in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam dropped down to flyweight, his natural competition weight, for the fight and lost to Ma.
