On July 7th ONE kicks back with Battle For the Heavens, which will feature the ONE SuperSeries prominently on the show. The main event for the evening will see a new Atomweight Kickboxing champion crowned in a battle between Yodcherry Sityodtong and Kai Ting Chuang. In a card that is featuring many Chinese athletes prominently, the main event is a clash between Thailand and China to determine the first ever champion in a division.
On top of that, Andre Meunier will fight Ibrahim El Bouni, who has made a name for himself in such promotions as W5, K-1 Japan and WFL of late, becoming one of the more prominent names in heavyweight kickboxing across the globe. He made it to the finals of the 2017 K-1 Japan World Grand Prix where he lost to Antonio Plazibat and since then has wins over Bogdan Stoica and Fred Sikking. We currently have El Bouni ranked at #10 for Light Heavyweight (as he floats between -95 and +95kg). El Bouni is a great signing for ONE to help build up their heavyweight division, as we’ve already seen some great bouts in the weight range already.
