EV “ET” Ting will let his performance do the talking when he takes on Amir Khan at ONE: EDGE OF GREATNESS in Singapore.
The spectacle goes down at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday, 22 November, and it is a special occasion for the two former ONE Lightweight World Title Challengers.
Ting looks to continue his winning run after defeating Daichi Abe by rear-naked choke in Kuala Lumpur. Khan, on the other hand, has not won since September 2018.
Although both lightweights are some of the most active in ONE, this will be their first-ever meeting in the Circle.
“We Kiwis have a habit of calling people out, so when ONE made an Instagram post asking who is next for Amir, I had to drop a comment there,” the 30-year-old said.
“A couple of years ago, he called me out. And now I’m granting that wish.”
Both martial artists are well-rounded, and by the looks of it, “ET” is aware of his opponent’s stand-up game, but he is not overly worried.
“His biggest strength is his striking. Although it is something very respectable, it is something which I do not fear.”
Ting’s fearless approach has earned him 10 finishes out of 17 wins, and now he looks to leave Singapore with one of the biggest victories of his career.
Despite staying quiet about specific game plans, he warns his rival to be ready for anything at ONE: MASTERS OF FATE.
“I’d like to push the fight in the first two rounds, so let’s all see where it goes.”
“I would not reveal my game plan for now, but it’s for everyone to find out come 22 November.”
ONE Championship travels to Manila, Philippines next for ONE: MASTERS OF FATE on Friday, 8 November, before the Singapore show.
