Singapore: ONE Championship™ (ONE) athletes competed at ONE: BIG BANG II, which is a previously recorded event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium for global broadcast this Friday, December 11, 2020.
Former ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion and #3-ranked flyweight contender Jonathan “The General” Haggerty, Japan’s Taiki “Silent Sniper” Naito, former ONE World Title challenger Tyler McGuire, #1-ranked lightweight kickboxing contender Nieky “The Natural” Holzken, and other athletes competing at ONE: BIG BANG II all took time to talk about their upcoming bouts.
The United Kingdom’s Jonathan Haggerty will be facing off with Japanese spitfire Taiki Naito in the evening’s main event offering. The man standing at the opposite end of the ONE Circle is Naito, who is currently unbeaten in ONE Championship. After Tyler McGuire suffered the first defeat of his professional career at the hands of former ONE Welterweight World Champion Zebaztian Kadestam in 2018, the previously unbeaten American went on a much-needed break to clear his mind and reevaluate his career. Now McGuire is ready to return to the ONE Circle in spectacular fashion against Agilan Thani.
Malaysian sensation Agilan Thani is also an athlete looking to bounce back and revitalize his career. After a hard-earned victory over Dante Schiro in late 2019, Agilan is ready to claim another prized scalp in Tyler McGuire. Kickboxing superstar Nieky Holzken is looking to get back to his winning ways after two heart wrenching setbacks against his countryman, and now reigning ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion Regian Eersel. ONE Warrior Series product Ali Motamed is finally making his ONE Championship main roster debut.
