  • ONE has added two more title fights to its stacked first quarter of 2022

Singapore-based ONE Championship is not looking to disappoint its fans with the announcement of two more world title fights for the first quarter of 2022.

The promotion revealed that Reinier de Ridder will be defending his middleweight title against Kiamrian Abbasov in the main event of ONE: Full Circle on February 25.

De Ridder remains unbeaten in 14 professional fights and carries both the ONE middleweight and light heavyweight titles after defeating Aung La N Sang on two separate occasions.

Abbasov, the ONE welterweight titleholder, will be gunning for his second title in the organization after an almost two-year-long hiatus.

Moving beyond February, ONE Championship also announced the long-awaited featherweight title fight between champion Thanh Le and Gary Tonon will be held on March 11 at ONE: Lights Out.

This fight was originally set to take place on the ONE X card set for December 5 but will now headline its own card.

Le won the title from Martin Nguyen at ONE: Inside the Matrix in October 2020, scoring the TKO victory after rocking Nguyen multiple times.

Tonon, who has been with the promotion since 2018, will have his first shot at ONE gold after accumulating five finishes in his past six fights.

ONE Championship is lining up for another solid year of events thanks to these two headliners.
