ONE: "Kings of Destiny" is booked for the 20,000 capacity MOA Arena in Manila on April 21st and the full fight card is out. Headlining this event will be a lightweight title fight between champion Eduard Folayang and challenger Ev Ting.
Folayang (17-5) won the belt by beating Shinya Aoki last November and is a living legend in the Philippines. He will certainly have the fans behind him when he defends his belt for the first time against New Zealand-based Malaysian Ev Ting (13-3) who is riding an impressive four-fight winning streak.
The card features several of Folayang's Team Lakay training partners including bantamweight Kevin Belingon (14-5), who will be giving away at least five inches in height when he takes on former Cage Warriors 135-pound champion Toni Tauru (11-4-1).
Another Team Lakay fighter in action is former featherweight champion Honorio Banario (11-6). His career has been on an upward trajectory since moving up in weight and he will go in search of a fourth straight win at the expense of Australia's Rob Lisita (14-9)
Belingon, Banario, and Folayang are promotional veterans who have been with ONE Championship for nearly six years. Team Lakay's Danny Kingad (4-0) will be hoping to have a similar impact and the Filipino flyweight has an opportunity to extend his perfect professional record against Malaysia's Muhammad Aiman (2-1).
