Danny "The King" Kingad is gearing up for another victory as he makes his return to the ONE Circle at ONE Fight Night 15: Tawanchai vs. Superbon on October 7 at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

The third-ranked flyweight contender is set to face the formidable "Wolf Warrior" Hu Yong, a challenge that could bring him closer to a shot at the ONE Flyweight World Championship.

“I’m excited. I know Hu Yong is a very skilled and dangerous fighter, so I’m doing everything to prepare for him and what he plans to do,” Kingad commented.

He understands that a victory here could propel him back into contention for the ONE Flyweight World Championship, currently held by Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson.


“The goal is to get back into World Title contention, and I know that another win here would put me in a good position to chase for the belt," he remarked.

However, Kingad isn't undermining his Chinese opponent.

He acknowledges the threat posed by "Wolf Warrior," who is on a two-fight winning streak, including a knockout win against Team Lakay veteran and former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio.

Nonetheless, Kingad has faith in his abilities and asserts, “I’m confident in my skills, and I’d love to test myself against him."
