Former ONE World Title challengers Amir Khan of Singapore and Ev “E.T.” Ting of Malaysia and New Zealand will do battle in a lightweight mixed martial arts contest at “ONE: Edge of Greatness.” It will be the co-main event of the evening.
ONE Championship will hold “ONE: Edge of Greatness” at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore on November 22, 2019. In the main event of the evening, Saemapetch Fairtex of Thailand will challenge his countryman, the reigning ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao.
Khan, a Singaporean Muay Thai champion, has faced the biggest names in ONE Championship’s lightweight division, including former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang and former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio Banario.
Ting, on the other hand, is coming off a spectacular come-from-behind victory against Daichi Abe last July. The Malaysian-Kiwi sensation, who is one of the world’s best lightweights, blazed a trail across Asia, New Zealand, and Australia before making waves on the global stage of ONE Championship.
Originally born in Malaysia, Ting was once a promising soccer player in school. But in 2009, he decided to switch his focus to mixed martial arts and began training at a local gym in Auckland. He made his professional debut in 2011, and has since defeated proven contenders such as former ONE Welterweight World Champion Nobutatsu Suzuki, Ariel Sexton, and Kamal Shalorus.
