ONE Championship will hit fans with two events on Friday, April 5. The doubleheader lineup will give fans four title bouts throughout the day and a buffet of additional martial arts action. Both events emanate from Bangkok, Thailand, and Lumpinee Boxing Stadium.

ONE Friday Fights 58 will kick off the day on global PPV. The showdown between Superbon and Marat Grigorian will crown the ONE Interim Featherweight Kickboxing World Champion. The five-round tilt will be the second time the two have met on the global stage and third overall.

In the co-main event slot, Jonathan Di Bella puts the ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Title on the line against Muay Thai champion Prajanchai PK Saenchai. The Thai star hopes to continue his string of wins by capturing gold in a second sport. However, Di Bella is hoping to keep his perfect record clean and continue to be the face of kickboxing in Canada.

ONE Friday Fights 58 will also be a platform for returning legends. Nong-O Hama will try to get back in the win column against Kulabdam Sor Jor Piek Uthai and Seksan Or Kwanmuang, who will battle Yutaro Asahi. Further down the card, different-limbed athlete Jake Peacock makes his ONE debut in a bantamweight Muay Thai showdown against Kohei Shinjo.

After a few hours to catch your breath, ONE is back in U.S. primetime. ONE Fight Night 21 on Prime Video will deliver nine more exciting contests. None is more enticing than Regian Eersel defending the ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Title against Alexis Nicolas in the main event.

Both Tye and Kade Ruotolo will also compete on the card. Tye will defend the ONE Welterweight Submission Grappling World Championship against Izaak Michell. Kade will compete in a 180-pound catchweight bout against Francisco Lo. Both Americans will attempt to stay perfect in ONE.

Hiroyuki Tetsuka tries to extend his winning streak to five against Valmir Da Silva, Ben Tynan looks for a second dominant performance against Duke Didier, and Suablack Tor Pran49 tries to enter the bantamweight Muay Thai title picture against Vladimir Kuzmin.
