Wang, Ogden return at ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX IV

Two exciting ONE Super Series matches will banner the final installment of ONE Championship’s INSIDE THE MATRIX series at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Number-two ranked strawweight kickboxing contender “Golden Boy” Wang Junguang takes on the debuting but dangerous Russian Aslanbek Zikreev in the main event of ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX IV, a previously recorded event that airs this Friday, November 20.

Wang is on the comeback trail and has gold in mind as he hopes to get another crack at two-sport World Champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao.

Wang faced Sam-A for the ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Title last December where he lost via decision, and now he hopes to start his comeback trail with a convincing win over Zikreev.

Zikreev, on the other hand, is making his debut in The Home Of Martial Arts but will come in with much experience, having competed in the European kickboxing circuits.

If he can dispel Wang in his debut, it will surely do wonders for his career in ONE.

In the co-main event, WPMF Muay Thai World Champion Rocky Ogden battles WBC Muay Thai World Champion Joseph “The Hurricane” Lasiri in a match between two-men who are also chasing Sam-A, this time in the world of Muay Thai.

Ogden challenged Sam-A for the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title last February and ultimately fell short. An impressive performance over Lasiri will no doubt jumpstart his bid for another World Title shot.

Here’s the full card for ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX IV:

Wang Junguang vs. Aslanbek Zikreev (ONE Super Series kickboxing – catch weight of 58.3 kilograms)

Rocky Ogden vs. Joseph Lasiri (ONE Super Series Muay Thai – catch weight of 59 kilograms)

Bruno Pucci vs. Kwon Won Il (mixed martial arts – bantamweight)

Ryogo Takahashi vs. Yoon Chang Min (mixed martial arts – featherweight)

Maira Mazar vs. Choi Jeong Yun (mixed martial arts – catch weight of 61.35 kilograms)
