Three homegrown talents determined to exemplify Singaporean pride at ONE: IMMORTAL PURSUIT : aforadio.com

Three Singaporean standouts are seeking to hoist their country’s flag aloft by winning their respective matches at ONE: IMMORTAL PURSUIT, which is headlined by a welterweight championship clash between division kingpin Ben “Funky” Askren and former lightweight titleholder Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki on Friday, 24 November at the iconic Singapore Indoor Stadium.Amir Khan is slated to lock horns with hard-hitting Australian combatant Adrian "The Hunter" Pang in the co-main event of ONE: IMMORTAL PURSUIT."It's an honor to represent the country on a global stage like ONE Championship. I promise that I'll do my best to give my beloved nation another spectacular win. It's also a privilege to compete alongside Tiffany Teo and May Ooi. For sure, both of them are also eager to win their respective bouts for Singapore. We are aiming to walk away as victors in our upcoming matches. We don't want to disappoint our countrymen as we perform our best in front of them. I feel I'm ready to be a world champion any time soon. I believe once I put away Adrian Pang, I'll be ready for the world championship. Adrian Pang is one of the top guys right now, so a title shot makes sense if I beat him."He has got quadruple the amount of experience that I have. He has been around for a long time. He's just really tough and durable. I've just got to take my time and not fall into his game plan. I'll keep my range, dance around him a little bit, and wear him out. He's going to be swinging for the fences from what I visualize. I'll make him ticked off a bit, and then take him out in the second round." - Amir Khan, ONE AthleteMay Ooi is booked to make her second appearance inside the ONE Championship cage at ONE: IMMORTAL PURSUIT opposite Srey Khouch."She's obviously a kickboxer, but she's a good striker. You have to be careful in the cage. I can't speak for the other martial artists, but for me, there's always a certain level of uncertainty because you never know what's going to happen. Yeah, there's fear, but it has been managed in such a way that I don't really feel it anymore. There has to be some level of fear being in there, but you have to manage it. I've been signed on for a number of bouts, and I'm competing in a division that doesn't have a title holder. So it's wide open, and I've already beaten Ann Osman. I don't do stuff just to do stuff. Whether or not I attain it's a different matter." - May Ooi, ONE AthleteTiffany Teo is a woman on a mission as she's also making a beeline for the top of ONE Championship's women's strawweight division."I like it more in Singapore. It's really nice when you walk out and you have a lot of people cheering for you. When I compete, I'm focused on my opponent, but I realize that every time I land a punch or get a takedown, I can hear the crowd responding, and that's really awesome. My long term goal would be getting a shot at the title belt that's currently vacant. Looking at the other female athletes in the division, I'm undefeated and I feel like a top contender. I don't mind any opponent they give me - I'm ready to take on any one of them. I'm hoping to get KO win. I've had submissions and a few unanimous decisions so far, even a TKO, so it will be nice to get a pure knockout. I've actually been saying that for a long time, but I've never been able to get it done. Hopefully this time around, I will." - Tiffany Teo, ONE Athlete

Ben Askren Faces Off with Shinya Aoki at ONE: Immortal Pursuit Kick-Off Press Conference : aforadio.com

The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), recently held the ONE: IMMORTAL PURSUIT Official Kick-Off Press Conference on 22 November at the Simpor Junior Ballroom of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore in conjunction to the main event which takes place on 24 November at Singapore Indoor Stadium.

This country witnessed the growth of this great organization, from its humble beginning to its rise as the largest global sports media property in Asian history. It's great to be back home to host another blockbuster event. Ever since our first event, which was held in the heart of Singapore, ONE Championship has been relentless in its pursuit to give fans adrenaline-pumping action from start to finish. ONE: IMMORTAL PURSUIT is certainly an event not to be missed." - Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman & CEO of ONE Championship"I said from day one that I'm the best in the world at what I do, and this is what I'm going to do every single time. I've been saying that since I started my career, and I believe it more strongly than ever because I've proven it 17 times now, and I'm pumped to prove it again on November 24th. Shinya is a really good opponent. Obviously, he's a legend of the sport, and he's a really big challenge on the ground, which is where I like to compete, personally. I'm excited for this bout. He's a grappler and has great skill set that I respect, so I think it will be a great battle." - Ben Askren, ONE Welterweight World Champion"Ben Askren is a spectacular martial artist. He's an athlete that I really respect. He has his own goal for his career, and I have mine as well. I'm here to win another belt in ONE Championship and redeem myself in front of the world. I want to win again. I'm not satisfied yet. I'm very determined to win this next bout of mine. I never turn down a match. I'm here to face the best." - Shinya Aoki, former ONE Lightweight World Champion"I'm a man on a mission. Adrian Pang is one of the top guys in the division right now, so it's a big test for me. My current goal is to be a world champion in a big global promotion like ONE Championship. What I hope to do is inspire people to chase what they love. I want my martial arts career to be proof that if you have the passion for something, and if you're good at it, you'll be able to make a living out of it." - Amir Khan, ONE Athlete"It's like the young bull versus the old bull. It will be a tough match for me. He's young and he will have heaps of energy, and he's strong. But I've never been knocked out in my career, so let's see. I've competed all around the world, I've been up and I've been down. I know how to bring the action, and I'm bringing it Friday night." - Adrian Pang, ONE Athlete"Competing in Singapore in front of all my family, friends and fans is such an honor. As a martial artist, I want to use the platform that I'm standing on to inspire people. Life isn't just about what you achieve, it's also what you inspire others to achieve. While it is very important to work on your own personal development, there are many underlying intangibles within the realm of success that extend far beyond your individual success. I hope to be an inspiration to the people of Singapore. It has been a while since I competed here and I'm excited to perform in front of my hometown crowd." - May Ooi, ONE Athlete"ONE Championship is the biggest promotion in Asia, and to be part of it, it's truly an honor. Everything that I did in training is all worth it because I've made it here. I've prepared well for this bout, and I'll make sure to showcase all of my skills. My opponent is extremely talented and experienced, so I'll need to bring my best." - Vy Srey Khouch, ONE AthleteFor more updates on ONE Championship, visit onefc.com or fb.com/ONEChampionship
