As they returned to the Mall Of Asia Arena for another exciting evening of world-class martial arts action, ONE: CONQUEST OF CHAMPIONS featured a series of compelling bouts, punctuated by two unforgettable championship clashes that left fans on the edge of their seats.
In the main event, Brandon “The Truth” Vera, who is a Filipino-American superstar has successfully defended his ONE Heavyweight World Championship against another great fighter, Italian challenger Mauro Cerilli in the first round, after a minute and fourteen seconds.
Everyone was in a shock right after he gives a left hook to the jaw of Cerilli and he falls. They were starting to heat up the fight, and in the first round, it was all over. Loud cheers and shouts came into the arena as Vera retains his title as One Heavyweight Champion.
During the presscon, Brandon was all smiles as he entered the room and he was in high spirit greeting everyone in Filipino.
In the main event, reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera of the Philippines made quick work of Italy’s Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli, stopping his opponent with a well-placed left hook counter to the jaw that turned the lights out on the Italian. After an aggressive Cerilli stalked Vera across the cage, the Filipino-American took a step back and uncorked the counter that landed right on the button. Cerilli was out before he hit the canvas as referee Olivier Coste stepped in to call a halt to the contest just passed the one minute mark. The victory also earned Vera GoDaddy KO of the Night honors.
Brandon Vera, ONE Heavyweight World Champion, stated: “Manila, all my countrymen, I’ve missed you all. Two years was a long time. I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long, but it looks like I can still do it. I’ve been watching Mauro’s tapes every night. Even as I sleep, I watch him train. I watch him fight. I watch everything he does. I know he swings hard. He did punch me in the mouth and it hurt, and then when he fell down, I was pretty surprised. So I’m glad I got that left hook in and dropped him with it. In the world of martial arts, the Philippines owns five world titles. We can do this. Continue your support. “We just won 5 out of 11 gold medals, let’s show the World we can do it”, Let’s get all the belts!”
Brandon promises to build a world-class training facility that will train our Filipino fighters and will bring in world-class trainors as well.
