#1 Fabricio Andrade 

 After his October 2022 showdown with John “Hands of Stone” Lineker ended in a disappointing no contest, Brazilian superstar Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade will now enjoy his second crack at capturing the vacant ONE Bantamweight World Title. 

 In their first encounter, Andrade seemed to have the former divisional king on his last legs just moments before landing a fight-ending inadvertent low blow.

Currently the division’s #1-ranked contender, the Muay Thai specialist is once again on the precipice of true greatness with an opportunity to erase any doubts and establish himself as the undisputed king of ONE’s stacked bantamweight division.

#2 Jamal Yusupov 

In the co-main event, Russian-Turkish knockout artist Jamal “Yeniceri” Yusupov will venture into enemy territory to challenge Thai star Tawanchai PK.Saenchai for his ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title. 

Undefeated across a trio of ONE bouts, Yusupov might already be the division’s most feared contender. If he can out-strike the 23-year-old champion, the Dagestani-born athlete will catapult himself into a new echelon to become the world’s top featherweight Muay Thai fighter. 

 He’s in for a stiff test against Tawanchai, but with his thunderously powerful left hand, the challenger could dethrone the divisional king on his way to becoming an international superstar and prestigious World Champion.
