Wei Xie carries some significant momentum with him in the One Championship flyweight division. Whether he can build upon it or not remains to be seen.
A winner in six of his past seven fights, Xie will face promotional newcomer Kantharaj Shankar Agasa in the One Championship “Full Blast” co-main event on Friday at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The showdown between the two flyweight hopefuls serves as an appetizer for the headliner: a muay Thai affair pitting Saemapetch Fairtex against Kulabdam Sor Jor Piek-U-Thai at 145 pounds.
One Championship “Full Blast”— which streams to Bleacher Report and B/R Live at 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT—also features a kickboxing match pairing Santino Verbeek with Miles Simson at 185 pounds, a lightweight tilt slotting Ahmed Faress opposite Edward Kelly and a catchweight clash matching Anthony Do with Hui Liang at 127 pounds.
