14 March 2018 – Manila, Philippines: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced “ONE: Heroes of Honor,” which is set for April 20, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Fans will once again be witness to another evening of world class martial arts action delivered by the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent.

In the main event, hometown favorite Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon, 30, of the Philippines takes on Andrew Leone, 28, of the United States. One of the matches on the preliminary card is a bout between two female fighters, namely Gina “Conviction” Iniong, 28, of Baguio City, Philippines and Jenny Huang, 27, of Chinese Taipei.

Iniong is a six-time national wushu champion and Belingon’s fellow member of the renowned Team Lakay. The top Filipino women’s martial arts contender owns a professional record of 6-3 with 4 of her six victories coming by thrilling finish including 2 highlight-reel submissions and 2 knockouts.

In Iniong’s last bout, she took top talent and Japanese martial arts veteran Mei “V.V.” Yamaguchi, 35, to the distance, falling by unanimous decision. The Team Lakay fighter will look to regain her winning form as she takes on a former world title challenger next.

On the other hand, Huang is highly-regarded as one of the most skilled female talents in ONE Championship. She sports a professional record of 5 wins and 2 losses.

In March 2017, Huang challenged Singapore’s Angela Lee for the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship. Of Huang’s 5 victories, she owns 3 via impressive submission.
