The two title fights planned for Saturday’s ONE WUJIE: Dynasty of Champions II (Beijing) event are now set, as official weigh-ins went down earlier today.
In the main event, Jadambaa Narantungalag and Marat Gafurov meet to determine the undisputed featherweight champion. The card takes place from the National Gymnasium of Olympic Sports Centre in Beijing, China. The card airs live online via internet pay-per-view.
“I am proud to be recognized as champion. It is an honor for both myself and my country,” Narantungalag said. “Tomorrow night, Marat Gafurov and I will determine who will have the privilege to be called the undisputed champion.”
The two were scheduled to meet earlier this year, but visa issues kept Narantungalag out of the fight. ONE officials placed Gafurov in an interim title bout, which he won, to claim his piece of the title.
“It has always been my dream to be champion,” Gafurov said. “I won’t stop until I am considered the best in this sport – for my family, my country and for myself. Tomorrow night, I have the chance to claim sole honor of being ONE Featherweight World Champion. It’s an opportunity that I am ready to seize.”
