Jonathan Di Bella, the reigning and undisputed ONE strawweight kickboxing world champion, will be returning to action soon, and he is delighted to face one of the most interesting fighters in ONE Championship.
This coming October, ONE Fight Night 15 will be shown on Prime Video, and it will feature Di Bella defending his ONE gold against multi-sport sensation ‘Mini T’ Danial Williams. Di Bella is excited to fight his Australian-Thai opponent in the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, where the event will be aired live, and he can’t wait to get into the ring with his opponent.
Although Williams has competed in a variety of categories in ONE Championship, including the most accomplished competitors in Muay Thai, kickboxing, and most recently mixed martial arts, ‘Mini T’ stands out in Di Bella’s mind due to the fact that he is such a respectable human being.
In a recent interview with the South China Morning Post, Di Bella discussed Williams and how much he values the respect that the Australian-Thai star constantly demonstrates. Di Bella expressed his appreciation for Williams’ consistent display of respect.
What did Di Bella say?
“This is one of the gentleman that competes in this sport and is competing for this promotion. I don’t think there will be a lot of trash talking going on here. I haven’t had any communication with him. Never once did we exchange words. However, I am just concerned with commercial matters. I’m simply going to go in there and try my best to get the job done once again.”
Please see the interview further down:
In the ring, you shouldn’t count on hearing anything except these guys’ greatest combinations traded back and forth. They are two of the most upstanding gentlemen in the world’s greatest martial arts promotion, and they are not renowned for their pre-fight banter or trash talking.
Fans can watch ONE Fight Night 15 live and for free on Amazon Prime Video. The event is being broadcast throughout the world.
