Geje Eustaquio vs. Kentaro Watanabe among four fights added to ONE FC: 'Era of Champions'

Taking place next month in Jakarta.

A potential flyweight eliminator bout between Geje Eustaquio and Kentaro Watanabe is among four fights which have been added to the ONE FC: "Era of Champions" card which is set for the Mata Elang International Stadium in Jakarta on June 14, 2014.

Eustaquio (5-2) is coming off a win over Eugene Toquero and the FIlipino is one of ONE FC's top flyweight contenders, while Watanabe (10-4)  is a Shooto veteran who holds a notable knockout win over Kosuke Suzuki, who is also set to make his promotional debut in Jakarta.

ONE FC's roster continues to expand and among the four matchups announced yesterday is a bantamweight bout between another pair of promotional newcomers in the shape of Indonesia's Yohan Mulia Legowo (7-2) and Ev Ting (6-2) from New Zealand.

Another Indonesian will be in action when veteran welterweight Zuli Silawanto (6-7) looks to snap his two-fight losing streak against an Iranian Taekwondo specialist known only as Barbod who will be competing in mixed martial arts (MMA) for the first time.

The fourth bout to be revealed is one that was originally slated for ONE FC: "Rise of Heroes" earlier this month but was nixed when Boston based Burmese fighter Aung La Nsang (14-9) couldn't get a travel visa. He will now be facing Egypt's Mahmoud Salama (4-4) on June 14 in a middleweight matchup.

ONE FC: "Era of Champions" is headlined by a flyweight bout between Adriano Moraes (10-1) and Kozuke Suzuki (10-3-2) with Fransino Tirta (15-0-1) facing Sami Amin (4-1) in the co-main event. The card will be broadcast live across Asia by Star Sports and can be purchased for $9.99 here.
