ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE RESULTS - Janet Todd decisions Stamp Fairtex to capture ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Championship

SINGAPORE - The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), held a special closed-door event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. With no crowd in attendance, ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE still showcased the very best of global martial arts talent. In the main event of ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE, the United States’ Janet “JT” Todd put together an extraordinary performance, stunning now former two-sport ONE World Champion Stamp Fairtex to capture the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Title. The two women had met previously under Muay Thai rules, but tonight, it was the punching accuracy of Todd that led her to victory. Todd opened the bout with a massive first round, connecting on the quicker, more impactful blows. Stamp turned the tide in the second and third rounds, closing the gap on the scorecards. Heading into the championship rounds, it was anybody’s game as the two women gave their all. Behind beautiful boxing combinations, Todd scored on a myriad of straight punches and hooks that found their mark. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Todd to win by split decision. In the co-main event of the evening, reigning ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao of Thailand added another belt to his collection after defeating Australia’s Rocky Ogden to capture the inaugural ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Championship. The legendary Thai veteran was the quicker and more powerful man as the contest wore on. Although the first few rounds were closely competitive and tactical, Sam-A turned up the aggression in rounds four and five, punishing his young opponent with fast and powerful kicks and boxing combinations. After five high-octane rounds, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Sam-A, who makes history as the first ever male two-sport ONE World Champion. ONE Warrior Series Contract Winner Kimihiro Eto of Japan easily scored the biggest victory of his career when he put former ONE World Title challenger Amir Khan of Singapore to sleep within the first few minutes of the opening round. The Japanese stalwart impressed with his grappling skill, as he effortlessly cancelled out Khan’s dangerous striking. As soon as the bell rang, the two men met immediately at the center of the ONE CIrcle, engaging in the clinch position. Eto then drove Khan against the Circle wall, and within moments he was able to bring the Singaporean Muay Thai Champion to the mat. From there, Eto took Khan’s back and sunk in a deep rear naked choke to end the bout early. Japanese-Korean mixed martial arts legend Yoshihiro “Sexy Yama” Akiyama powered through an early flurry from Egypt’s Sherif “The Shark” Mohamed to win by first round knockout. Mohamed railed off wild haymakers from the opening bell, forcing Akiyama to backpedal and box from distance. The veteran Akiyama showed great head movement, evading most of Mohamed’s power shots. Towards the end of the round, Akiyama punctuated his performance by landing a well-placed right hook as Mohamed was coming in, instantly turning the lights out on the Egyptian. In a clash of top female strawweights, former ONE World Title challenger and Singaporean boxing champion Tiffany “No Chill” Teo overcame a spirited effort from highly-regarded Ayaka Miura of Japan, winning by technical knockout in the third round. Miura flashed moments of brilliance in the first round, attacking with her 3rd Degree Judo Black Belt skills while hunting for her trademark scarf hold submissions. But Teo quickly figured out her game plan and adjusted her strategy to nullify Miura’s ground game. In the second round, Teo took control of the action, stopping Miura’s takedown attempts and then lighting her up on the feet. In the final round, it was all Tiffany Teo as the Singaporean pounded Miura with thunderous strikes to force the stoppage. The Philippines’ Denice “The Menace Fairtex” Zamboanga battered top contender Mei “V.V” Yamaguchi of Japan for the majority of the three-round atomweight contest to win by unanimous decision. Zamboanga was accurate and powerful, connecting on a volley of explosive boxing combinations. By the end of the first round, Yamaguchi’s face already showed the wear of a warrior who has been through war. Although the Japanese former ONE World Title challenger tried to nullify Zamboanga’s striking by taking matters to the ground, the Filipina exhibited impeccable takedown defense, stopping most of Yamaguchi’s takedown attempts. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Zamboanga. Shortly after, Mitch Chilson announced that Zamboanga had earned herself a shot at the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship currently held by Angela Lee. The United States’ Troy “Pretty Boy” Worthen kept his professional record perfect with a tremendous performance against ONE Warrior Series Contract Winner Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo of New Zealand and the Philippines. Worthen negated Abelardo’s early onslaught with good footwork and savvy defense. He then tagged Abelardo with a plethora of high kicks that left the Fairtex Gym representative dazed. With his opponent in disarray, Worthen proceeded to turn to his world-class wrestling, overwhelming Abelardo on the mat. Across three whole rounds, Worthen controlled a game but outclassed Abelardo en route to a hard-earned unanimous decision victory. Former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario of the Philippines returned to the featherweight division to take on Thailand’s Shannon “OneShin” Wiratchai, figuring in a close split decision victory. The two former lightweights went to war over three full rounds, meeting each other at the center of the ONE Circle with their best offense. Wiratchai, creator of the OneShin Striking System, dazzled behind a consistent left round kick which found a home on Banario’s chin. The Filipino veteran, however, showcased beautiful boxing, and a relentless takedown game that saw him in top position for the majority of the contest. In the end, two of the three judges saw the bout in favor of Banario. In a women’s atomweight contest, Indian wrestling sensation Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat authored a dominant performance, outgrappling opponent “Miss Red” Wu Chiao Chen of Chinese Taipei over the course of three rounds. Phogat, a Commonwealth Wrestling World Championships gold medalist, took Wu to the canvas at will with smooth takedowns. With Wu on her back, Phogat punished her opponent with fists and elbows from the top. Wu tried her best to defend, but struggled to gain any traction. After three whole rounds, Phogat emerged victorious with an impressive showing, earning the nod on all three judges’ scorecards. ONE Championship newcomer Murad Ramazanov of Russia kept his unblemished record intact after turning in a dominant performance in a victory over South Korea’s “Wolverine” Bae Myung Ho. Action started out fierce, with Bae pushing the pace, pressing Ramazanov up against the Circle wall with powerful strikes. Ramazanov, however, defended quite well and was able to weather the early storm. The former WMMAA World Champion from Dagestan then scored on a quick takedown, bringing the action to the mat. From there, it was all Ramazanov as the Russian star operated a heavy top game that saw him take mount and punish Bae until the referee called a halt to the contest. Kicking off the action at ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE were bantamweights Jeff “MMAShredded” Chan of Canada and Radeem Rahman of Singapore. Chan immediately went on the offensive from the opening bell, peppering Rahman with fast and powerful combinations in the first round. It didn’t take long however for action to hit the ground, and the two men proceeded to jockey for position. Chan was able to put in some good ground-and-pound for his efforts. In the second round, Chan dominated once again, taking Rahman down off a failed shot from the latter, and then worked his way to take back position. From there, he sunk in a deep rear naked choke to force the tap.   Official results for ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Championship: Janet Todd defeats Stamp Fairtex by Split Decision (SD) after 5 rounds ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Championship: Sam-A Gaiyanghadao defeats Rocky Ogden by Unanimous Decision (UD) after 5 rounds Mixed Martial Arts Lightweight: Kimihiro Eto defeats Amir Khan by Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 1:39 minutes of round 1 Mixed Martial Arts Welterweight: Yoshihiro Akiyama defeats Sherif Mohamed by Knockout (KO) at 3:04 minutes of round 1 Mixed Martial Arts Strawweight: Tiffany Teo defeats Ayaka Miura by TKO (Strikes) at 4:45 minutes of round 3 Mixed Martial Arts Atomweight: Denice Zamboanga defeats Mei Yamaguchi by Unanimous Decision (UD) after 3 rounds Mixed Martial Arts Bantamweight: Troy Worthen defeats Mark Fairtex Abelardo by Unanimous Decision (UD) after 3 rounds Mixed Martial Arts Featherweight: Honorio Banario defeats Shannon Wiratchai by Split Decision (SD) after 3 rounds Mixed Martial Arts Atomweight: Ritu Phogat defeats Wu Chiao Chen by Unanimous Decision (UD) after 3 rounds Mixed Martial Arts Welterweight: Murad Ramazanov defeats Bae Myung Ho by TKO (Strikes) at 4:53  minutes of round 1 Mixed Martial Arts Bantamweight: Jeff Chan defeats Radeem Rahman by Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 2:00 minutes of round 2  .....»»

3 exciting matches to watch at ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE

There will be no shortage of action this Friday, 28 February, when ONE Championship lights up “The Lion City” for ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.  In the main event, Stamp Fairtex defends her ONE Women’s Atomweight Kickboxing World Title against Janet “JT” Todd in the main event, while Sam-A Gaiyanghadao takes on Rocky Ogden for the inaugural ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title in the co-main event.  Three Filipinos will also enter the Circle that night when Honorio “The Rock” Banario tangles with Shannon “OneShin” Wiratchai, Denice “The Menace Fairtex” Zamboanga battles Mei “V.V” Yamaguchi, and Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo clashes with “Pretty Boy” Troy Worthen.  But the action does not end there. Here are three more must-see match-ups on the card.    Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Sherif Mohamed When Yoshihiro “Sexy Yama” Akiyama competes, everybody watches. That has been the case for pretty much his whole martial arts career, which spans nearly two decades. And not much will change when he battles Sherif “The Shark” Mohamed on the main card.  It will be a battle between two top-notch grapplers – Akiyama bringing in his judo background and Mohamed showcasing his wrestling. They are also two athletes who are more than willing to exchange on the feet, setting up what could be an exciting tactical battle.  And with both men coming off losses, it would not be surprising to see either athlete go for broke in this match.    Amir Khan vs Kimihiro Eto The lightweight division has always been loaded with talent, and the clash between Amir Khan and Kimihiro Eto will highlight that.  With both men looking to solidify their spot in the division, expect non-stop action the moment the opening bell rings.  Coming off a loss against "Crazy Dog" Dae Song Park, Eto would want nothing more than to pick up an impressive win against the hometown favorite to get himself back in contention for the World Title.  Despite coming off a win against Ev “ET” Ting, Khan also has something to prove as he was criticized for playing it safe in the win.    Ritu Phogat vs Wu Chiao Chen 2016 Commonwealth Wrestling World Champion Ritu "The Indian Tigress" Phogat made a successful debut when she stopped Nam "Captain Marvel" Hee Kim in just one round at ONE: AGE OF DRAGONS. Now training at Evolve MMA, the expectations for Phogat are through the roof, and those expectations will only intensify if she defeats “Miss Red” Wu Chiao Chen.  A win for Phogat would add another player to the already loaded ONE women’s atomweight strawweight division. But that will be easier said than done against Chen, who hopes to have a debut to remember by pulling the upset rug from underneath on the Indian wrestler.    ONE Championship returns to “The Lion City” for ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE this Friday, 28 February, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Three Filipinos in Honorio “The Rock” Banario, Denice “The Menace Fairtex” Zamboanga, and Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo will also enter the Circle that night.   Catch ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE on Friday, January 28th, LIVE at 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

Host Philippines receives favorable draw in 2020 Badminton Asia Manila Team Championships

The fate of the nations competing in the 2020 Badminton Asia Manila Team Championships has been known, Wednesday at the Century Park Hotel. Host Philippines, seeded ninth in the continental meet that will take place from February 11-16 at the historic Rizal Memorial Coliseum, received a somewhat favorable draw. The Philippine Men's National Badminton Team, consisting of Joper Escueta, Ariel Magnaye, Alvin Morada, Solomon Padiz Jr., Paul John Pantig, Ros Pedrosa, Arthur Salvado, and Lanz Zafra, are slotted in Group A together with top-seed Indonesia and fifth-ranked India. On the other hand, the women's team of Nicole Albo, Sarah Barredo, Mika De Guzman, Geva De Vera, Ysay Leonardo, Chanelle Lunod, Bianca Carlos, and Thea Pomar will figure in Group C with fellow Southeast Asian squads Thailand and Indonesia. "We need to prepare since we fell short in the SEA Games. We need to double time, triple time with our effort," said women's team head coach Ian Mendez. "We are playing with the best in the world. We fell short during the SEA Games but, hopefully, we will give them a good fight this time," added men's team head coach Ronald Magnaye. Men's runner-up in 2018 China headlines Group B and will be joined by Thailand and Hong Kong while Group C will consist of Chinese-Taipei, Malaysia, and Singapore. Powerhouse Japan, who will be without world no. 1 Kento Momota as he is still recovering from injuries he sustained from a vehicular accident late last year, leads Group D together with Korea and Kazakhstan. Defending women's champion Japan is slotted with Malaysia and Hong Kong in Group W. Korea, India, and Kazakhstan will wage war in Group X while China, Chinese-Taipei, and Singapore will duke it out in Group Z. The top two teams in each group will advance to the knockout quarterfinals while the four semifinalists will punch their ticket to the Thomas and Uber Cup in Aarhus, Denmark this May. Even with Momoto out, the rest of the world's best will take part in the biennial tournament, including world no. 2 Tien Chen Chou of Chinese Taipei, no. 5 Anthony Ginting and no. 7 Jonatan Christie of Indonesia, no. 9 Ka Long Angus Ng of Hong Kong, and no. 10 Kanta Tsuneyama of Japan for the men's.

"We're happy to help out in the country's hosting of this prestigious international sports event. This is very much in line with our advocacy of helping nation-building through sports. We strongly believe that the positive values that sports promote can help our people to improve our lives," said PLDT chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, who has been supporting Philippine Badminton for the last decade. "This is going to be the first time that there will be so many top-ranked players who will be going to this tournament in the Philippines. These will be exciting times for the Philippines," added Philippine Badminton Association president Alfredo Benitez......»»

Chinese TV pulls Arsenal game coverage after Ozil criticism

By Rob Harris, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Chinese television pulled coverage of Arsenal's Premier League match against Manchester City on Sunday after Mesut Ozil, a forward for the London club, criticized Beijing's brutal mass crackdown on ethnic Muslims in the country. China is the Premier League's most lucrative overseas broadcast market, with the rights sold for $700 million in a three-year deal that runs through 2022. But instead of the sports channel of Chinese state television showing Ozil featuring in Arsenal's 3-0 loss to City, it scheduled a delayed recording of Tottenham's 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton from earlier Sunday, according to information from the network. Streaming service PPTV.com also also canceled a feed of Arsenal's match which featured Ozil for almost an hour before he was substituted amid cheers and some jeers from his own fans. Ozil reacted by kicking his gloves on the touchline. “How he reacts is up to him and I'll deal with it,” interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg said. “We'll see what it means for the future but of course we want players to behave the right way.” Ljungberg would not discuss the specifics of Ozil's social media post from Friday which embroiled Arsenal in controversy in China. “The China thing is political," Ljungberg said, “and I’ll leave that to the club.” Arsenal used a post on Chinese social media network Weibo to dissociate itself from Ozil's action. “The content he expressed is entirely Ozil's personal opinion,” the north London club said. “As a football club, Arsenal always adheres to the principle of not being involved in politics.” Ozil added to condemnation of the detention of more than 1 million Uighurs and other minorities in so-called reeducation camps in China's northwestern region of Xinjiang, where they are subjected to political indoctrination, torture, beatings, and food deprivation, as well as denial of religious and linguistic freedom. A social media post from Ozil on Friday denounced China for burning Qurans, closing mosques and the killing of religious scholars. The Arsenal player complained that “Muslims stay quiet.” The Chinese Football Association expressed "great indignation and disappointment" at Ozil's comments, according to the Global Times newspaper published by the ruling Communist Party. China's government increasingly uses the threat of loss of access to the country's growing market as leverage to try to control what companies, universities and others say or do abroad about political issues. Arsenal will be hoping to avoid the backlash faced by the Houston Rockets earlier this year after the NBA team's general manager, Daryl Morey, tweeted support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong, angering fans and officials in China. The tweet was deleted soon after it was posted, and Rockets owner and billionaire casino and restaurant owner Tilman Fertitta quickly rebuked his GM with a tweet saying that Morey does not speak for the team. The tweet caused some Chinese corporations to suspend relationships with the NBA. There is a growing a backlash in China against Ozil, who is Muslim of Turkish descent. “I think he is very wrong," lawyer Chen Wangshu said in Beijing. “As a sportsman, his most important responsibility is to do his job well, or to play good football.” In 2018, Ozil quit Germany’s national team following criticism over his decision to pose for a picture with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “He should be responsible for his career and refrain from making any comment raising and inciting anger in other nations," Chen said......»»
