With five new fights announced for ONE FC 8: Kings and Champions, the card is complete. A championship fight headlines with two bantamweight tournament semifinals also set.
Kotetsu Boku will be making his first lightweight championship defense against Shinya Aoki. In October, Boku won the inaugural title with a third round TKO over Zorobabel Moreira. Aoki comes into the fight going 2-1 last year. After a loss to Eddie Alvarez in Bellator, he submitted his last opponents, including one that took place out of ONE FC.
