ONE: Heroes of Honor Features Kevin Belingon vs. Andrew Leone Bantamweight Battle


ONE: Heroes of Honor is set for Manila on April 20. It will be headlined by a bantamweight bout between Kevin Belingon and Andrew Leone. The event will also feature several world class Muay Thai fighters and kickboxers competing under various rulesets. Belingon (17-5) is a veteran of 13 ONE Championship matches and a top contender in the bantamweight division. He has won his last four fights and will surely be in line for a second title shot if he beats Leone at the MOA Arena. Leone (8-3) has been signed to ONE Championship for nearly six years, but has suffered from several injuries during his tenure. He's won three out of his four fights for the promotion with the only loss coming in a title match with Bibiano Fernandes. In total, there will be three ONE Super Series bouts on the card, all fought under striking rules.  As previously announced, Giorgio Petrosyan faces Jo Nattawut and Nong-O Gaiyanghadao takes on Fabio Pinca, while Brad Riddell will be matched with Regian Eersel. There are also two fights on the card which will have serious implications for the title picture in divisions currently ruled by Martin Nguyen. Lightweight Honorio Banario (12-6) will be looking to secure a fifth straight win at the expense of Australian veteran Adrian Pang (22-11-2).
