MANILA, Philippines—Reinier De Ridder’s ONE Light Heavyweight title defense headlines the ONE Fight Night 5 on December 3 at Mall of Asia Arena.
De Ridder will put his strap on the line against Anatoly Malykhin who is currently the interim ONE Heavyweight champion, at the card’s main event.
The Dutch Knight, who is undefeated in 16 bouts, recently submitted former middleweight champion Vitaly Bigdash in the first round via an inverted-triangle choke.
Malykhin, on the other hand, is looking to be a two-division champion as he also holds the heavyweight gold. Like De Ridder, Sladkiy is also undefeated but in fewer fights (11-0).
