Bibiano Fernandes successfully defends his One FC bantamweight world championship, while fan favourite Eduard Folayang emerges victorious over Kotetsu Boku
One Fighting Championship (One FC) held its fourth event in Manila, Philippines on 2 May at the Mall of Asia Arena, as Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes enjoyed a successful title defence of the bantamweight world championship.
“Rise of Heroes”, the first of two events in May, saw “The Flash” take out his challenger Masakatsu Ueda by a unanimous decision following a display of well-executed grappling and striking skills.
Elsewhere, the co-main event of the night featured a clash of striking experts, as local fighter Eduard Folayang beat Japan’s Kotetsu Boku after three intense rounds. The crowd had more reasons to cheer, with three other Filipino representatives winning their respective bouts.
However, the night’s loudest cheers were reserved for Filipino-American Ana Julaton, as the former WBO and current IBA super bantamweight champion beat her Egyptian opponent Aya Saeid Saber in the third round by gaining a mounted position and letting fly a series of punches.
