SINGAPORE - The One Championship event dubbed Defending Honour next month at the Singapore Indoor Stadium will have three more bouts featuring Singaporeans, completing the fight card for the Nov 11 event.

This includes Tiffany Teo, who will make her One Championship debut in the flyweight division. The 26-year-old, who holds a perfect professional records of three wins and no losses, was born in Brunei and raised in Singapore and will be up against Walaa Abbas of Egypt.

Benedict Ang, 20, is also unbeaten after three bouts and will take on Ahmed Mujtaba of Pakistan in a featherweight contest.

Niko Soe, 23, will also make his first appearance inside the One Championship cage against Malaysia's Muhamad Haidar in a flyweight battle.

Fan favourite Angela Lee, however, will not be featuring. The American fighter of Singaporean and Korean descent is One Championship's first women's world champion and holds the atomweight title.

The three additional bouts will feature alongside the main events of the night with two title bouts lined up. Japanese veteran Shinya Aoki will defend his lightweight belt against Eduard Folayang of the Philippines. In the featherweight title bout, defending champion Marat Gafurov of Russia will face contender Narantungalag Jadambaa of Mongolia.

According to a One Championship spokesman, this will be the "biggest, best and most global card" the promotion has put up in Singapore. It will be the first event it will put up in Singapore since securing an eight-figure investment from Heliconia Capital Management, a wholly owned subsidiary of Temasek Holdings.
