Whatever happened to the supposed to be opponent of Brandon "The Truth" Vera? The One Championship fight night would now have a different match against Vera because of unclear reasons.
After multiple requests made by ONE directly to Chi Lewis-Parry and his manager over the last few weeks, Parry has failed to submit his medical results and his drug tests for the fight this Friday. Additionally, he decided not to board the plane departing from London to Manila. He will not be fighting this Friday.
But do not worry because Vera's fight will continue as scheduled but against a different opponent. We are fortunate that someone immediately agreed to go against Vera with very little notice.
The next top HW contender, Paul Cheng will be stepping in for the World Championship fight against Brandon Vera. Can China claim its first ever Heavyweight World Champion or will the hometown hero make it a storybook win for Filipinos?
