MANILA--While the crowd at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay became raucous during One: Global Superheroes, Twitter also went wild on Friday night as the said event trended on the social media site.
The topic Global Superheroes and the hashtag #OneFightNight trended on Twitter while the said fight card was ongoing.
What further helped the event trend was the live broadcast of the undercard matches on Twitter. The "Twitterverse" witnessed Edward Kelly and Jomary Torres' emphatic knockouts as it happened inside the MOA Arena. The said live stream generated 404,000 views.
Twitter also erupted when Joshua Pacio submitted Lan Ming Qiang and Geje Eustaquio captured the interim One flyweight title against Kairat Akhmetov in the two featured bouts of the night.
