    One Championship enters the World of Kickboxing
    2018-02-12

    Fascinating news coming out of Singapore today with the announcement that One Championship is entering into the competitive world of Kickboxing.

    They have announced a professional kickboxing league will launch in Manila in conjunction with its Heroes of Honor card on the 20th of April.

    Kickboxing superstar Giorgio Petrosyan will headline the inaugural show where he will face off against Thailand’s Jo Nattawut on the aforementioned event in Manila.

    Moreover, a fantastic array of Thailand’s MuayThai royalty have been announced to have signed contracts to fight for the promotion: such as Petchboonchu FA Group, Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, Yodsanklai Fairtex and Sagetdao Phetphayathai — and to put some icing on the cake a host of well-known international fighters including Giorgio Petrosyan, Fabio Pinca, Regian Ersel and Sergei Maslobojev have signed on to fight for the One Kickboxing league.



    Interesting times ahead for the world of Kickboxing especially with One’s existing reach throughout Asia with their successful MMA promotion.

    The question is will they fight in a Ring or a Cage.

    Always thought Nong-O would clean house if he went into kickboxing, he has a great style for it.

    In a cage with mma gloves is a good USP (unique selling proposition).

    But either way I'm happy.

    I still think rings are better than cages... I like the idea of mma gloves though.

    Im the opposite as I would prefer all fights take place under modified mt rules as it seems to fit much better with an mma promotion (besides my personal preference for mt rules). At least if it as under mt rules you can say its the same rules as mma minus ground fighting/grappiling. It is going to majorly confusing for people at home when some fights are mma.some mt and then some with kb which take out not just the ground fighting/grappling but also elbows, extended clinch knees and clinch grappling which are both allowed under mt and mma

    This thread is full of win. I love it.

    Hopefully they can continue to bring in talent.

    Petro vs Smoking Jo - Kickboxing GOAT vs Muay Thai GOAT. What a way to kick off the promotion...

    And people asking where Jo was...

    good to see he giving a chance to the italian kid to share the ring with him,but dont expect something much different than this when the fight gets over:
