Kickboxing Champ Eersel To Fight Haida In March 19th Episode
ONE Kickboxing Champion Regian Eersel will fight Mustapha Haida in the main event of ONE’s March 19th event. Eersel will look to defend his belt for the second time.
A two-fight series against Nieky Holzken in 2019 saw Eersel win a kickboxing belt and defend it for the first time. Now with a year outside of the cage, Eersel will fight Haida.
Haida has competed twice in ONE, picking up a win and a loss each.
Muay Thai talent will be featured on the card as well, as Janet Todd will fight Alma Juniku and Han Zi Hao will be matched against Adam Noi.
Former Shooto Strawweight Champion Hiroshi Minowa will compete on the card against Alex Silva. Minowa won his ONE debut in November, defeating Lito Adiwang via decision.
Hu Yong will make his first flagship ONE appearance in the opening fight, facing Yodkaikaew Fairtex. Hu was given the fight after picking up five wins on ONE’s “Hero Series.”
