He will face Yuta Nezu in a Featherweight Championship match. In the Muay Thai rule match, 19-year-old talent, Chaoyang, will face former REBELS champion “Baku Arms Big Daddy” KING Kousuke. Each fighter has a chance for a bonus. The winner will get the right to negotiate a contract with ONE.


Some words from the fighters:


Hiroyuki Tezuka:

I am very pleased to be able to play the match after a long time. The opponent is the king of Africa, but I win with KO and make an impact. Which is the real beast! ? I am looking forward to it!


Gunter Calunda:

Hello to everyone in Japan. I am Gunter from the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am a champion in the South African EFC and I am participating in the ONE Warrior series. I usually only practice with my brothers, so I came to Japan in search of a better life and practice environment. I am fortunate to be able to have a match in Japan. The opponent is Pancrase champion Tezuka. He seems to be called the Beast, but who is the real Beast? I am the one who has beaten Beasts and others in Africa. I’ll let you know who the real Beast is, so please take a look, Japan.


Masakazu Imanari:

Care for your health and I will win with an extreme move.


Yuta Nezu:

Thank you for your offer in a difficult situation due to Corona! I’ve never thought I’d do it, but I think it’s something to prove this time. I hope we can have a good fight that will be tomorrow’s inspiration for the people watching!


Chaoyang/PK Senchieime Thai Gym:

I am happy to be able to participate in such a competition again. Road to ONE, which I fought in last time, I also won a good match with a KO. I am looking forward to a fight that exceeds the last one, so please look forward to it. Please provide some support.

KING Kousuke:

I will get a victory.

Arii Nagisa:

I’m really excited to have a big match at this time.

My opponent is strong, but I only play my match to win!

I had the opportunity to participate in the ONE Championship competition. I will definitely win.
