ONE Championship: Kevin Belingon destroys Andrew Leone in Manila

Team Lakay’s Kevin Belingon battered and bloodied American Andrew Leone en route to a second round TKO win, Friday evening in their bantamweight main event at ONE Championship: Heroes of Honor, Friday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena. Belingon overwhelmed Leone early in the bout, unloading a flurry of strikes that had the American stunned and looking for a takedown. Leone shot in and ended up getting stuffed by Belingon, who wound up in top position, raining down a barrage of elbows and fists, and a knee that ultimately opened up a cut on Leone’s left eye. The ringside officials halted the bout momentarily to check on Leone’s cut, but the American was ultimately cleared to fight on. In the second round, Belingon landed a turning side kick straight to Leone’s gut that sent the American crashing across the ring. Belingon pounced and rained down a storm of ground and pound until the referee ultimately called a stop to the bout. The stoppage time came in at a minute and 27 seconds into the second round, with Belingon taking the dominant TKO win. The Baguio native scores his fifth straight victory to earn another shot at the ONE Bantamweight World Championship, currently held by Bibiano Fernandes.  .....»»

Striking-based ONE Super Series a treat for Pinoy fans, says ONE CEO

Aside from a sure-to-be entertaining main event between top bantamweight contenders Kevin Belingon and Andrew Leone, ONE Championship's return to Manila on Friday, April 20th will mark the debut of the ONE Super Series.  “It’s an open invitation to the greatest strikers in the world,” explained ONE Championship CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong. “Fans will witness the absolute elite in striking martial arts, as they go head-to-head on the biggest and most prestigious global stage of competition.” And for starters, Manila's Heroes of Honor card will feature four ONE Super Series bouts headlined by kickboxing legend Giorgio Petrosyan taking on Jo Nattawut.  "ONE Championship is now the world’s largest martial arts organization, in that if you think about the umbrella of martial arts and all the verticals of Muay Thai, Kickboxing, submission grappling, boxing, mixed martial arts, these are all the verticals, and I decided we really wanna do all and celebrate all of Asia’s greatest martial arts, full stop. Asia is the home of martial arts, but we’ve never been able to see all, witness all of them. I think it’s also an amazing opportunity for our athletes to win world titles in both." What's more, in line with the debut of the ONE Super Series, ONE Championship will be exchanging their circular cage with a five-rope ring. The squared circle is the traditional battleground for striking-based martial arts such as boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai.  "ONE Super Series is dedicated in a ring, where you will see all the beautiful striking arts of the world, but you’ll also see mixed martial arts in there as well. The cage is going to be dedicated for primarily MMA, so that’s how it’s gonna work out."  "The beauty of this is, as a martial artist, you wanna test yourself in the cage, you can, you can test yourself in the ring, in any environment, and if you’re truly the best in the world, it doesn’t matter where the fight’s gonna be, you should be able to win, right, as a real world champion. That’s kind of the idea of experimenting with a ring. Definitely, this is a start, and we’ll have a bunch more ring shows this year." Sityodtong added.  Over the course of the past year, Sityodtong and ONE Championship have heavily promoted Asian martial arts in their fight cards, with Lethwei and Silat exhibitions, as well as a caged Muay Thai bout between Lumpinee legend Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and Joseph Lasiri in Manila back in January.  With the ONE Super Series, Sityodtong aims to put these martial arts on full display.  "We’ve been toying with the idea for about two or three years, internally, about when is the right time. Now, ONE Championship has really arrived and just exploded all over the world and all over Asia, we said what else can we do to bring martial arts fans all over the world? ONE Championship being the home of martial arts, Asia being the home of martial arts, it’s a way for us to celebrate across the entire continent. We wanna showcase Lethwei, which we have, showcase Silat, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Wushu, Sanda, Kung Fu, all the beautiful arts of Asia, this is what I wanna showcase." So why choose to launch the sport in the Philippines?  Sityodtong explains that it's somewhat a way to give back to the Filipino fans for their continued support and unparralleled appreciation since ONE's inception in 2011.  "We also debated, where would we get the biggest bang for the buck, it’s no secret that the Filipino, it’s in the warrior blood of every Filipino, you guys are fighters at heart, probably the biggest fight fans in the world, and so I wanted to give a special treat and said let’s do it in the Philippines." "I wanted to do something special, for me, Manila holds a very special place in my heart, so many great moments of ONE Championship here. I said if we’re gonna do the ONE Super Series, let’s launch it out in Manila." Sityodtong added.    Catch the debut of the ONE Super Series at ONE: Heroes of Honor on Friday, April 20th, at the Mall of Asia Arena.  You can watch it LIVE starting at 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

I just love to compete - Team Lakay s Kevin Belingon isn t going to wait for a title shot

With four straight impressive victories under his belt, the popular belief is that Team Lakay’s Kevin Belingon is undoubtedly the number one contender in ONE Championship’s bantamweight division. Heck, even ONE Championship CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong agrees. It just so happens that timing doesn’t seem to be on the Baguio-native’s side. “I agree, I agree a hundred percent. I talked to Kevin a couple of months ago, and I recommended that he wait it out,” Sityodtong said during the pre-fight press conference for ONE: Heroes of Honor. Rather than stay idle and wait for the title fight, Belingon decided that he wanted to fight, whether or not for the championship. “He wanted to fight so Matt Hume gave him a fight.” On Friday at the ONE: Heroes of Honor card at the Mall of Asia Arena, Belingon takes on former title contender Andrew Leone, and Sityodtong bared that the winner will be next in line to challenge ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano Fernandes. If Belingon can pull out a win, he gets his shot at redemption against Fernandes. “For sure, Kevin Belingon is getting the next title shot, after Bibiano is rested and well” Sityodtong said. As it turns out, the longest-reigning ONE world champion is a bit banged up after successfully defending his title against two-division world champion Martin Nguyen just last March.  "Bibiano’s injured right now, I just talked to him last week, his leg is still [hurt], he hasn’t been able to train at all, so I don’t know when he’ll be back in action," revealed Sityodtong.  Belingon and Fernandes have crossed paths for the world title before, in early 2016, with Fernandes handily defeating the Pinoy in the first round. Since then, Belingon has won four straight, and Bibiano has defended his title thrice. A long overdue rematch between Belingon and Fernandes will no doubt show just how much both fighters have gotten better since their first meeting, but before any talk of rematches, the Team Lakay knockout artist will first need to take care of business against Leone, who’s also angling for a rematch against the champion of his own. For Belingon, accepting a fight against someone the caliber of Leone could definitely put his top contender status in jeopardy. A loss could easily send him to the back of the line, but the heavy-handed isn’t concerned about that. It’s simply all about improving. “For me, no worries. I just train hard and keep improving, learning the techniques on the ground and wrestling, and improving my weaknesses to be my strengths in the future, para magamit ko sa mga susunod na laban.” “Sa akin, I just love to compete.” Belingon added.   Kevin Belingon and Andrew Leone square off in the main event of ONE Championship: Heroes of Honor this Friday, April 20th at the Mall of Asia Arena. Catch the action LIVE starting 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23.....»»
