JAKARTA: ONE: Kings of Courage wants to further develop its women’s division as it aims to become the World No 1 sport within five years.
The One Championship’s first Strawweight World Championship will see Singapore’s Tiffany Teo taking on China’s Xiong Jing Nan.
Chairman Chatri Sityodtong believes One Championship will grow and become popular in the future.
“There is no reason the event cannot be the No 1 sport in the world in five years time. We are already Asia’s No 1 entity,” said Sityodtong.
Tiffany, who is undefeated with seven wins, is delighted to be involved in the first ever women’s championship event.
“I’m excited to be part of it,” she said.
Jing Nan said: “It is a dream. I think they (One Championship) made the right choice by selecting me for the title fight.
“I will do my best and my main objective is to do well,” said Jing Nan, who has recorded 10 wins in 11 fights.
