Three more matches have been scheduled for ONE Championship’s return card, ONE: No Surrender which is set for July 31 in Bangkok, Thailand.
Filipino-Kiwi bantamweight Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo adds some kick to the card as he takes on the debuting Fabricio “Wonderboy” Andrade in a catchweight bout of 67 kilograms.
Abelardo will look to bounce back after a unanimous decision loss to “Pretty Boy” Troy Worthen at ONE: King of the Jungle in February, and he wants to achieve that while also inspiring people during these tough times.
“The entire world is reeling right now, and if by stepping into the ring and showcasing my skills can help inspire people to soldier on, I’m glad to do it,” Abelardo said.
“I am thankful we can get back to competing again. This is what I live for and I have so much I want to do in this sport. The next step starts in Bangkok.”
His teammate and ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Champion Stamp Fairtex will also appear on the card as she returns to mixed martial arts action.
The 22-year-old puts her immaculate mixed martial arts record on the line when she takes on Sunisa “Thunderstorm” Srisen in a battle of undefeated stars.
“It feels good to get back into training full swing, and of course I am happy to be fighting again after taking a break for a few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Stamp said.
Completing the card is a clash between “The Angel Warrior” Panpayak Jitmuangnon and Superlek “The Kicking Machine” Kiatmoo9 in a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest with 4 oz. gloves.
The main event features a rubber match between ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon and Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy for the former’s belt.
The ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title will likewise be at stake as Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy defends his strap against “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex.
ONE Championship returns to live action with ONE: No Surrender, an audience-free, closed-door event in Bangkok, Thailand on July 31.
