MANILA—In a last-minute change, Honorio Banario will now face a different opponent at One: Kings of Destiny at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay a week from Friday.

In an announcement on Wednesday, the former One featherweight champion will now clash with Jaroslav Jartim.

In the said statement, Banario's original opponent, Rob Lisita, begged off due to personal reasons.

On the other hand, Jartim is a veteran in the game, sporting a 7-1-5 win-draw-loss record with all but one of his wins coming by stoppages.

Meanwhile, the anticipated showdown between Christian Lee and Keanu Subba will not push through as the latter suffered an injury during training.

Still, the younger brother of One women's champ Angela will fight at the MOA Arena as Wan Jian Ping takes over the spot vacated by Gianni Subba's younger sibling.
