Fairtex vs. Xiong, Haggerty vs. Kiatmoo9 Top Card for ONE Event in Denver

Published:

ONE
Championship has announced the two featured bouts for its
return to the United States.

Stamp
Fairtex will challenge Jingnan
Xiong for the strawweight (125-pound) title in an MMA bout,
while Jonathan
Haggerty will defend his ONE bantamweight (145-pound) muay thai
belt against ONE flyweight kickboxing champ Superlek
Kiatmoo9.

ONE on Prime Video 26 will take place on Sept. 6 at Ball Arena
in Denver and will air on Prime Video in the United States. The
Singapore-based promotion made its stateside debut last May with
ONE on Prime Video 10, which was headlined by a trilogy bout
between Demetrious
Johnson and Adriano
Moraes.

Fairtex, a three-sport champion under the ONE banner, is already
scheduled to defend her atomweight (115-pound) MMA title against
Denice
Zamboanga at
One Championship 166 in Thailand on June 7. The 26-year-old has
been victorious in six of her last seven MMA bouts in ONE
competition.

Xiong, the reigning 125-pound queen, is coming off four consecutive
decision victories in five-round fights. Most recently, the
Beijing, China, native took a unanimous verdict over Angela Lee
at ONE on Prime Video 2 in September 2022.

Hailing from Orpington, England, Haggerty owns a 21-4 record in
kickboxing and muay thai. He captured the 145-pound muay thai belt
with a first-round TKO of Nong-O Hama
in April 2023. He also recently knocked out Fabricio
Andrade to claim the vacant 145-pound kickboxing crown.

Known as “The Kicking Machine,” Kiatmoo9 boasts a 137-29 career
mark. Regarded as one of the top strikers in the world, Kiatmoo9
claimed multiple world titles while fighting in Thailand well
before he signed with ONE in 2019. He captured ONE’s vacant
125-pound kickboxing belt with a decision win over Daniel
Puertas in January 2023.
