Four more fights confirmed for ONE FC 23: 'Warrior's Way' including Eduard Folayang vs Timofey Nastyukhin


ONE FC: "Warrior's Way" is set for Manila on Dec. 5 and four more bouts were added to the card today including a lightweight match up between popular Filipino Eduard Folayang and Timofey Nastyukhin, a promotional newcomer from Russia.

The event is taking place at the 20,000 capacity SM Mall of Asia Arena and sees Folayang (14-4) looking for a third consecutive win inside the ONE FC cage when he takes on Nastyukhin (7-1) who, since being defeated in his pro debut, has won seven straight fights.

The other three match ups announced today include the return of Fil-Am former boxing world champion Ana Julaton (1-1) who is fast developing a fan base in Manila and will be fighting in the flyweight division for the third time against Egypt's Walaa Abas Mohamed Kamaly (2-1).

The other female fight on the card sees seasoned boxer Jujeath Nagaowa (1-0) stepping inside the ONE FC cage for the second time to take on Tharoth Sam (2-0) in a 105-pound division which is slowly starting to come together with Singaporean Kirstie Gannaway winning her pro debut earlier this month.

Completing the 10-fight card is a flyweight fight between Wushu World Champion Rene Catalan (0-1-0-1) and multiple times Muay Thai champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke (3-0) in what promises to be a striking war between two fighters who could probably both make 115 pounds.
