Japan vs Philippines: Yuya Wakamatsu, Danny Kingad to clash at ‘ONE: Conquest of Heroes’ in Jakarta, Indonesia


The Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia will once again play host to another exciting evening of world-class martial arts action. On September 22, 2018, “ONE: Conquest of Heroes” will see the biggest and brightest stars take to the ONE Championship cage to showcase their incredible skills.

The ninth bout of the evening is a flyweight contest. Yuya Wakamatsu of Japan will face Danny Kingad of the Philippines.

23-year-old Yuya “Little Piranha” Wakamatsu is a mixed martial artist from Kagoshima, Japan. Holding a professional record of 10-2, Wakamatsu is an aggressive knockout artist with shocking power. With nine of his 10 victories coming by way of knockout, Wakamatsu is a force to be reckoned with at flyweight. A winner of 10 of his last 11 bouts, Wakamatsu has decided to take his talents to the ONE Championship cage. He makes his promotional debut against Danny Kingad.

Danny “The King” Kingad, a premier flyweight talent from the famed Team Lakay of Baguio City, is a wushu champion with a professional record of 10-1. A true warrior from the mountains of the Philippines, the 22-year-old is a tremendous striker who possesses well-rounded grappling skills. In November 2017, Kingad challenged reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes, and fell short in his quest of capturing the world title. In his most recent bout, “The King” moved forward by defeating rising Chinese star Ma Hao Bin by unanimous decision. Up next, he returns to action against newcomer Yuya Wakamatsu.

Meanwhile, here is a clip from one of Kingad’s previous bouts:
