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. In one of the bouts on the main card, Belingon’s fellow Team Lakay fighter Honorio “The Rock” Banario, 28, will battle it out with Adrian “The Hunter” Pang, 40, a martial arts veteran from Queensland, Australia.
A former ONE Featherweight World Champion, Banario has long been one of the Philippines’ most respected martial arts veterans. His tremendous cage experience has brought him all over Asia in many memorable battles against top divisional talent.
While Banario’s strength lies in striking, which is just one of his many skills, he has recently exhibited a vastly-improved grappling game. He is ready to once again showcase his world-class wushu skills and lightning-quick strikes against Pang.
With a 22-11-2 professional record, Pang has decimated opponents with his incredible power and no-frills approach to striking in nearly two decades as a professional. He is known for his astounding durability and overwhelming strength with the ability to walk through opponents with little to no resistance.
However, Pang will need to muster all of his strength when he takes on Banario in his next appearance inside the ONE Championship cage. Here is the complete “ONE: Heroes of Honor” fight card:
