Two of the One Championship titles are on the line as Eduard Folayang defends the lightweight title against featherweight champion Martin Nguyen while Adrian Moraes defends against Danny Kingad.  One Championship 65, aka “Legends of the World”, takes place November 10th at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines with an iPPV through the promotion’s website.

Eduard Folayang enters his second defense of the lightweight title with a record of 18-5 with five wins in a row.  It was Folayang who dethroned Shinya Aoki last November with a third-round TKO while his first defenses of the tile was over Ev Ting in April.  9-1 Martin Nguyen also holds five wins in a row with wins in the past twelve months over Kazunori Yakota in January followed by the KO of Marat Gafurov that earned Folayang the featherweight title in August.

This will be Adriano Moraes’ first defense of his second reign as One Championship flyweight champion.  16-2 Moraes lost the belt by split decision to Kairat Akhmetov then defeated Eugene Toquero and Kairat Akhmetov to earn a rematch against Akhmetov, a clash he won by unanimous decision to reclaim the belt in August.   Danny Kingad is less experienced but has a still-perfect record of 5-0.  In the past year Kingad defeated Toquero last December and Muhammad Aiman in April.
