ONE HEROES OF HONOR At The Mall of Asia Arena In Manila

12:30:00 PM Add Comment
Asia’s premier martial arts organization, ONE Championship, is back in Manila for its second of four shows in 2018. In a press conference held at the Grand Ballroom of the City of Dreams in Manila, the promotion kicked off its latest event, ONE: HEROES OF HONOR, which is set for Friday, 20 April, at the Mall of Asia Arena.

In attendance were Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, Chatri Sityodtong, main event combatants Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon of Baguio City, Philippines and Andrew Leone of Cortland, New York, USA, global kickboxing superstar Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan and opponent ‘Smokin’ Jo Nattawut of Thailand, among others.

Belingon (17-5), who is currently riding a four-bout winning streak, takes on former bantamweight world title challenger Leone (8-3) in a contest with huge title implications. Both Belingon and Leone are seeking a rematch against reigning ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes, but will have to go through each other to secure it.








“I know Andrew Leone is a tough opponent, and I need to be at my best to win. It’s going to be one of my biggest matches to date,” said Belingon. “I am very thankful to ONE Championship for allowing me to be a part of this historic event. I can’t leave anything to chance. I have to give another great performance. Beating Leone would be the next step to the title.”

Belingon’s opponent Leone also knows what’s at stake in this matchup, and he isn’t taking the Filipino lightly by any means.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for me. I can’t wait to go up there and show what I can do, to perform to the best of my ability,” said Leone. “Kevin Belingon is a tough guy. He’s a hard puncher and he has power. But I’m not worried about his striking. I’ve faced tough guys before. All I can say is that I’ll be ready.”

ONE: HEROES OF HONOR also marks the world premiere of the highly-anticipated ONE Super Series. Announced earlier this year, ONE Super Series aims to provide the world's best martial artists a prestigious global platform to showcase the beauty of Asia's striking arts such as Muay Thai, kickboxing, karate, taekwondo, Kung Fu, wushu, sanda, silat, lethwei, and more.

“It’s an open invitation to the greatest strikers in the world,” said Sityodtong. “Fans will witness the absolute elite in striking martial arts, as they go head-to-head on the biggest and most prestigious global stage of competition.”








With ONE Super Series, ONE Championship is now considered the largest martial arts organization in the world. While competing promotions do offer a similar product, according to Sityodtong, they only offer one flavor of martial arts as opposed to ONE Championship which hosts bouts across all styles of martial arts.

“Aside from the many great bouts this Friday night, what I’m most excited about is the launch of ONE Super Series. ONE Championship is the only global player to encompass all styles of martial arts,” said Sityodtong. “We have the best in all styles going up against each other. That’s definitely something to look forward to.”

Making his appearance in the co-main event of the evening, kickboxing elite Giorgio Petrosyan is elated at his chance to leverage ONE Championship’s massive worldwide audience reach. Broadcast to a potential 1.7 billion on any given night to over 136 countries worldwide, ONE Super Series will harness the full potential of ONE Championship’s global influence in order to highlight the greatest in striking martial arts.

And while the promotion is gearing up for a very busy mid-year, Sityodtong teases that there are plenty more surprises to come, including the highly-anticipated launch of ONE Championship’s new mobile app, slated to arrive in the coming months.

“The new ONE Championship mobile app is a true game changer in the world of martial arts,” said Sityodtong. “Soon, fans will have access to all our blockbuster live events and complete library of Hi-Definition content in the palm of their hands, all for free, and you can watch from anywhere in the world. It’s going to take ONE Championship to the next level.”

Before the end of the press conference, Sityodtong also revealed plans to establish a professional boxing league in addition to ONE Super Series, inviting the greatest boxers from the Philippines and around the world to join the promotion.

Also in attendance at the press conference were main card competitors Honorio “The Rock” Banario of Team Lakay, opponent Adrian “The Hunter” Pang of Australia, as well as various ONE Championship athletes who mixed in with the crowd and participated in the festivities.

ONE: HEROES OF HONOR goes down this Friday, 20 April at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines. Gates open at 6:30 PM local time.

Samsung Shares Love & Care With Its Community On Its 80th Anniversary

Setting apositive environment, responding to people’s needs and helping them to live better is what Samsung strives to achieve in giving back to society. Many underprivileged areas are in need of clean water, sanitary common spaces, education and the support to hear them out – and Samsung is committed to providing solutions with its annual Love & Care corporate social responsibility programme.

Held in conjunction with Samsung’s 80thanniversary this year, 80 Samsung employees volunteered to visit the community at Kampung Ulu Tual, an orang aslivillage in Pahang that was ‘adopted’ by Samsung back in 2015. At the one-day programme, volunteers interacted with the village people, provided basic educational sessions and distributed basic and essential necessities.

Apart from providing them the necessities; this time round, Samsung wanted to instil a deep appreciation on sustaining the environment around them. Therefore, an activity of planting 80 trees with the village children of Kampung Ulu Tual was in the line-up to create a greener environment for them to live in.

“We are glad to be back in Kampung Ulu Tual for the 4thyear consecutive, to continue what we started under Samsung’s Love & Care programme. Before this, we had provided the basic living necessities for them to lead a better life filled with possibilities. To celebrate Samsung’s 80thAnniversary this year, we have decided to take a different approach by extending love and care to the environment as well. We hope that through this, we can inspire them to continue preserving and protecting Mother Nature. I’m proud of all Samsung volunteers today who have demonstrated exemplary volunteering work and we look forward for more initiatives in future,” said Mr Yoonsoo Kim, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Besides that, Samsung’s volunteer team utilised Samsung television for an educational session. Through screen mirroring technology, learning materials were projected and pop quizzes were conducted using Smart TV, in hopes that this will stimulate a positive learning attitude that will pave a wider path for a better future. This is part of Samsung’s ongoing efforts to increase literacy rates among the people of Kampung Ulu Tual, especially the young children.

Back in 2017, Samsung donated 300 portable solar LED lights to the village and although it was a significant help to the villagers, the tech company noticed that the village still needed more light. Hence, Samsung donated an additional 100 solar LED light units this year, so that the villagers would have enough lighting especially at night; to help them get by in their activities, chores and studies.

Before leaving the village, Samsung volunteers participated in a little bit of fun by having Love & Care’s annual ‘Tug of War’ match with the villagers of Kampung Ulu Tual. Monthly rations were also distributed to 163 households of Kampung Ulu Tual for the villagers’ daily consumption. “We have been incredibly fortunate over the years, and it’s only natural that we give back in any way we can. I’m excited for what the future holds and I hope that we continue to constantly keep our surrounding communities in mind no matter where we are or what we do,” Mr Kim concluded.

The Samsung Love & Care programme was previously known as Samsung’s Nanum Village initiative. The programme commenced earlier in 2015 as part of Samsung’s local Corporate Citizenship efforts.
