The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), recently held the ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES Official Kick-Off Press Conference last Monday, 22 January at the Manila Grand Ballroom of the City of Dreams. Main event competitors Geje Eustaquio the Philippines and Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan faced-off for media in attendance. They will be competing for the ONE Interim Flyweight World Championship in the headline bout of ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES which takes place Friday night, 26 January at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila.
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.”
