The ONE organization returns to Malaysia on 12 July, and the fight card was released by the promotion.
ONE: Masters of Destiny features thirteen bouts total. Eight fights are MMA, with the remainder being contested under kickboxing or Muay Thai rules.
As previously mentioned, Giorgio Petrosyan and Petchmorrakot will meet in a ONE Featherweight Kickboxing Grand Prix quarterfinal rematch. The winner advances to the semifinals to meet Jo Nattawut later in the year.
Janet Todd of the United States meets China’s Kai Ting Chuang in a female atomweight kickboxing contest.
Todd and Chuang have a common opponent in Stamp Fairtex, the organization’s atomweight kickboxing and Thai-rules champion. Fairtex defeated Chuang on points to win the ONE Atomweight belt in kickboxing, then won a decision over Todd to win the promotion’s Muay Thai championship.
Todd won her first ONE fight under kickboxing rules in May. The California fighter stopped Wang Chin Long in two rounds.
The Japan-China kickboxing rivalry continues in a flyweight bout. Hiroki Akimoto meets Kenny Tse.
Akimoto is 1-1 in the Super Series. The kyokushin champion defeated Josh Tonna of Australia, but lost a majority decision to Joseph Lasiri in his last bout. Both bouts were under kickboxing rules.
Tse is still looking for his first win in ONE Super Series competition. The Chinese fighter was stopped in one round by Petchdam in a Muay Thai bout, then lost a unanimous decision to Momotaro in a kickboxing rules bout in March.
