Tiffany Teo and Xiong Jing Nan will battle for the inaugural ONE Women’s Strawweight World Championship at ONE: Kings of Courage on January 20 in Jakarta.
Teo, who is undefeated after seven fights, asked for a shot at the title after submitting Puja Tomar at ONE: Immortal Pursuit in late November. With four victories in ONE Championship including two by way of submission, Teo was appropriately regarded as a front-runner for an opportunity at the ONE Women’s Strawweight Championship.
Her opponent, however, is new to the ONE Championship scene in comparison. Xiong made a statement in her debut with the organization by powerfully overcoming April Osenio in the first round at ONE: Warriors of the World. The TKO victory moved Xiong to 10-1 on the back of five consecutive wins.
ONE: Kings of Courage is the first scheduled ONE Championship event of 2018 and will take place on January 20 at the Jakarta Convention Center, Jakarta.
