Fabricio Andrade, the current bantamweight mixed martial arts world champion for ONE, is going into his next bout with the intention of winning a second belt. Even if he does not end up victorious, he has not ruled out the possibility of pursuing a third championship belt in the future.
At ONE Fight Night 16 on Prime Video on November 3 in Bangkok, ‘Wonder Boy’ will be competing for the open ONE bantamweight kickboxing world title. This event will be broadcast on Prime Video.
In the all-champion clash that will serve as the main attraction of the event that will take place at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium, he will square off against Jonathan Haggerty, who reigns supreme in the Muay Thai category.
Fabricio Andrade recently gave an interview to The MMA Superfan, during which he stated that his primary objective at the present time is to capture the kickboxing world title that is now vacant. On the other hand, he is not opposed to going after a third one, in particular the one that Jonathan Haggerty currently possesses.
The Brazilian celebrity, who is 26 years old, stated:
“If I win the title, I’ve got a lot of business to take care of, including balancing between two divisions and attempting to keep my belts and position,” said the fighter. “I’ve got a lot of business to take care of.” If I were to win the kickboxing match against him, however, that would very certainly be an option.
