ONE Championship Adds Boxing to it Repertoire
At the Press Conference for ONE Championships Kingdom of Heroes event Scheduled for 6 October in Bangkok Thailand it was announced that for the first time One Championship will hold boxing matches as part of their event with one of boxing's top pound for pound fighters Srisaket Sor Rungvisai fighting under the ONE banner. This adds another combat sports discipline to the mix, as the MMA organization has already begun to include Muay Thai Kickboxing in their fight cards.
When asked by MMAmadhouse if having athletes on the roster from various combat sports could lead to potential cross sport super fights under the ONE Championship banner Founder and CEO Chatri Sityodtong responded “for sure!”
Probably the most impressive development in sports media was announced at this press conference by Chatri and flew under the radar for the most part. The October 6th event will be broadcast live nation wide on two competing TV networks in Thailand Thairath TV and Workpoint. The details of the arrangement have not been made public, but it is nonetheless a first.
