ONE FC Reaches ESPN TV Deal, Adds Another Show

ONE FC’s second show of 2013 is set for April in Singapore and will air across Asia on ESPN Star Sports. Lightweight champion Kotetsu Boku (20-7-2) is set to make his first defense against Shinya Aoki (32-6-1 NC) in the main event.

Boku won the inaugural title by knocking out Aoki’s teammate Zorobabel Moreira in October and currently rides a two fight win streak, where he finished his opponents with his hands. After Aoki lost to Eddie Alvarez in his only Bellator appearance, he too has been able to finish his previous opponents. Those wins came out of DREAM and ONE FC.

All other ONE FC shows have only been available via a delayed telecast on sport network channels or live from an online PPV stream. The April event, which has no date set, will be the first live broadcast on TV.

The promotion makes their first appearance this year with ONE FC: Return of Warriors on February 2 from the Putra Indoor Stadium in Malaysia and can be seen live on the promotion’s website,, for $9.99.
