Also in attendance at the ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES Official Kick-Off Press Conference were Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, Chatri Sityodtong, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Global Citizen, Wei Soo, Vice President for Gaming Operations of City of Dreams Manila, Kevin Benning, co-main event competitors Joshua Pacio and Lan Ming Qiang, as well as Filipino martial arts veteran Eric Kelly and his opponent, Rafael Nunes.

Geje Eustaquio, ONE World Title Challenger, stated: “I am expecting another difficult bout. Kairat Akhmetov is tough and has a huge heart inside the cage. That is why I am preparing very well for this rematch. A victory over Kairat would land me a rematch against Adriano Moraes. I believe I have what it takes to become the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Champion in the future.”

Kairat Akhmetov, ONE World Title Challenger, stated: “I am coming into this interim title match-up with the mentality that it will be me versus the world, and I am ready for it. In 2017, I had ups and downs. I do not want to look back. In 2018, I am looking forward to reaching my dream to battle Adriano Moraes for the third time. But of course, I have to beat Geje Eustaquio first to fulfill my dream.”
