ONE Championship: Kevin Belingon vs. Martin Nguyen for interim bantamweight title set for Manila in July

ONE Championship’s July card in Manila will be getting a big-time main event, as Team Lakay knockout artist and top bantamweight contender Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon will be taking on reigning ONE Championship Featherweight and Flyweight World Champion Martin ‘The Situ-Asian’ Nguyen for the Interim ONE Championship Bantamweight World Champion. ONE Championship CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong made the announcement on his Facebook page, Thursday afternoon.  Currently riding a five-fight winning streak, Baguio City’s Belingon (18-5) is considered by many as the number one contender to the ONE Championship Bantamweight World Title, currently held by Brazilian submission specialist Bibiano Fernandes. After losing to Fernandes back in 2016, Belingon clawed his way back into the title picture by going on an impressive winning run including dominant stoppage wins over Toni Tauru and former title contenders Reece McLaren and Andrew Leone. A win over Nguyen will finally give Belingon the ONE title that he’s longed for, as well as securing his spot once again as the next to challenge Fernandes, ONE Championship’s longest-reigning world champion. (READ ALSO: With title shot in mind, Kevin Belingon says Martin Nguyen can wait.) Following a successful defense of his featherweight crown against Christian Lee, the 11-2 Nguyen drops back down to bantamweight and will try to get another chance at becoming a three-division world champion. After capturing the featherweight and lightweight belts back in 2017, Nguyen kicked off 2018 with a title shot against Fernandes in Bangkok, Thailand. While Nguyen pushed the champion to the limit, at the end of five rounds, Fernandes once again reigned supreme as he defended his bantamweight title for a record seventh straight time. Roughly two months removed from his last bout, Nguyen jumps back straight into the title picture to challenge Belingon for the number one contender spot. The Belingon-Nguyen blockbuster bantamweight title bout will serve as the headliner for ONE Championship’s third of four trips to Manila in 2018. As announced by Sityodtong, the card will also feature MMA legends Renzo Gracie and Yuki Kondo in a retirement match, as well as former champion Shinya Aoki taking on Thai star Shannon Wiratchai.  Former ONE Championship Lightweight world champion and Filipino MMA star Eduard Folayang has also been announced for the card.  ONE Championship: Reign of Kings will Friday, July 27th at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City......»»

Next stop San Francisco as ‘longest swim’ embarks from Tokyo

Ben Lecomte dived into the Pacific Ocean Tuesday, kicking off an epic quest to swim 9,000 kilometres (5,600 miles) from Tokyo to San Francisco, through shark-infested waters choking with plastic waste. Under sunny skies, the 51-year-old Frenchman slipped into cool and placid waters shortly after 09:00am (0000 GMT), in warm and pleasant conditions with a slight breeze. He will face giant waves, sharks and jellyfish, and will also swim through part of the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" in his attempt to be the first to accomplish the feat of swimming across the world's biggest ocean. "I'm very anxious to start right now," said the swimmer as he prepared to take to the waves. His son a...Keep on reading: Next stop San Francisco as ‘longest swim’ embarks from Tokyo.....»»

Nadal easily beats Gasquet to reach 4th round at French Open

PARIS --- Defending champion Rafael Nadal easily beat Richard Gasquet once again, reaching the fourth round of the French Open with a crushing 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 win on Saturday. Nadal is gaining momentum in his bid for a record-extending 11th title at Roland Garros, and Gasquet never looked remotely like stopping him. He rarely has. The top-ranked Spaniard inflicted a 16th defeat on Gasquet, who has lost every encounter dating back to 2004. In fact, the 27th-seeded Frenchman has not even taken a set off him in 11 straight matches, including this latest one-sided affair. It makes gloomy reading for Gasquet, who quickly trailed 5-0 in sunny conditions on Court Philippe Chatr...Keep on reading: Nadal easily beats Gasquet to reach 4th round at French Open.....»»
