ONE Championship: Fists of Fury 3 official fight card


ONE: Fists of Fury 3 official fight card.

ONE Championship returns to the Singapore Indoor Stadium this Friday for ONE: Fists of Fury 3.

The event will be headlined by a lightweight kickboxing world championship match between current champion Regian Eersel and challenger Mustapha Haida.

When Eersel steps into the ONE Championship cage on Friday, it will be exactly five years since his last professional kickboxing loss. Eersel is the former Lion Fight super middleweight belt holder, a title he defended three times before signing with ONE. Eersel won the ONE Championship lightweight kickboxing title against Nieky Holzken in 2019, which was followed by an immediate rematch that was again won by Eersel via unanimous decision. The Surinamese champ also has victories in kickboxing over UFC veterans Brad Riddell and Anthony Njoukuani. This bout between him and Haida was originally scheduled to take place at ONE: Unbreakable, but an injury forced Haida off the card. Haida is 1-1 in the promotion and is coming off a recent victory over Eder Lopes in the Oktagon kickboxing promotion.

The co-main event will be a Muay Thai bout between ONE atomweight kickboxing champion Janet Todd and No. 4 ranked Muay Thai contender Alma Juniku. Todd most recently defeated Stamp Fairtex via split decision to win the ONE atomweight kickboxing title, a rematch of their first bout from 2019 which was for the ONE atomweight Muay Thai championship. Juniku holds a professional record of 24-6, but has dropped her last two bouts against Stamp Fairtex and Anne Line Hogstad. Experience will likely play a factor in this one as Todd is over 10 years Juniku’s senior.

Also, former ONE strawweight world champion and current No. 5 contender Alex Silva meets former Shooto strawweight champion Hiroba Minowa.

The remainder of the card will be mixed martial arts contests.
