One: Spirit of Champions Holds Press Conference ot City of Dreams
The largest sports media property in Asian history, One Championship, held its press conference for the December 11, 2015 One: Spirits of Champions titanic matches at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The presscon was on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at the City of Dreams in Pasay.
World-renowned Muay Thai stylist and 8-time Grappler's Quest Champion, Brandon "The Truth" Vera, and the Philippines' most talented young bantamweight, Mark "Mugen" Striegl, were present to answer the inquiries of the members of the media.
When Vera was asked what could be the weakness of Parry that could help bring him down, Vera replied that Parry is quite slow so he will take advantage of his speed in putting Parry down on maybe at the 4th or 5th round.
Vera was also thinking of letting people experience the championship belt so he plans to leave it in the Philippines to be loaned to Filipino fans if he wins at the December 11 match against Parry. Vera also plans to look for Whang Od, the oldest living traditional tattoo artist from Kalinga, after the fight so he could also be honored with her craftsmanship.
Vera will be fighting British kickboxing stalwart Chi Lewis "Chopper" Parry, while Striegl will go against undefeated Jordan "Showtime" Lucas of Melbourne, Australia.
Other Filipino Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) superstars to grace the December 11 event include female boxing world champion Ana "Hurricane"Julaton who will battle Russian kickboxer Irina Mazepa, and Ruel Catalan who will try to beat Brazilian grappler Alex Silva.
Sponsors present at the event were the head honchos of consumer technology companies Haier and LG who also formed part of the panel. While One Championship CEO, Victor Cui, officiated the press conference. Richard Jay "Rich" Franklin II, Vice President of One Championship was also present at the press conference but preferred to sit among the audience.
