MANILA--The return leg of One Championship at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay is slowly taking shape.

Three kickboxing fights will take place at One: Heroes of Honor scheduled for April 20 as part of the inaugural "One Super Series".

In the first fight, Giorgio Petrosyan of Italy battles Jo Nattawut of Thailand.

Nong-O Gaiyanghadao of Thailand will face Fabio Pinca of France, while Brad Riddell of New Zealand and Regian Eersel of the Netherlands, who were recently signed on for the kickboxing tourney, will collide in the other match.

The said kickboxing tournament stemmed from the positive feedback to the kickboxing showdown between Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and Joseph Lasiri won by former at One: Global Superheroes also at MOA Arena last January.

The full fight card for One: Heroes of Honor will be announced at a later date, although CEO Chatri Sityodtong revealed recently that One is setting up a fight pitting former lightweight champ Eduard Folayang.
