“ONE: Age of Dragons” is the next ONE Championship event to take place in China. In the co-main event of the evening, Tarik “The Tank” Khbabez of Morocco and Roman Kryklia of Ukraine will do battle for the inaugural ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Championship
ONE Championship will hold “ONE: Age of Dragons” at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China on November 16, 2019. Including the title bout between Khbabez and Kryklia, the combat sports event will feature 12 matches not only in mixed martial arts but also in ONE Championship’s striking-only league ONE Super Series with kickboxing and Muay Thai contests.
Khbabez, a 2-time SUPERKOMBAT Heavyweight World Champion, is known for his aggressive style, and his fast and powerful combinations. The heavy-handed Moroccan striker has been perfect so far in ONE Super Series, winning all four of his bouts impressively.
Khbabez’ latest conquest came last June, when he toppled Brazil’s Anderson Silva to win by unanimous decision in front of Chinese fans in Shanghai. The victory earned him a spot opposite Kryklia in this World Title matchup.
Kryklia, on the other hand, is currently riding an eight-bout winning streak heading into his ONE Super Series debut. He is a former Kunlun Fight World Champion.
ONE Championship has also announced a partnership with Bloomage International. As the strategic partner, the latter will work closely with the Singapore-based martial arts organization in developing its brand across all platforms.
“ONE Championship remains dedicated to delivering Chinese martial arts fans the very best in sports entertainment,” ONE Championship group president Hua Fung Teh stated. “Showcasing our elite Chinese ONE Championship athletes and giving them the global platform to shine is our goal. I can’t wait for this amazing event this November.”
