MANILA, Philippines — Expect fireworks when ONE Championship returns to Singapore this month.

Staging its first event in Singapore since the pandemic, ONE: Inside the Matrix will have six bouts, featuring four world title fights.

The event will be held before an audience-free Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Team Lakay legend and former two-time lightweight world champion Eduard Folayang will make his return in the stacked card against Antonio Caruso of Australia.

Folayang, 36, aims to get back on track and gain another title shot after dropping three of his last four fights, including a split decision loss to Pieter Buist last January in Manila.

In the main event, Aung La N Sang will defend his middleweight belt against Reinier de Ridder.

A lightweight title fight is on tap with champion Christian Lee defending his belt against Iuri Lapicus.

Featherweight titleholder Martin Nguyen is also putting his strap at stake against Thanh Le while strawweight queen Xiong Jing Nan will have her crown on the line against No. 1 contender Tiffany Teo.

In the curtain raiser, atomweight Ritu Phogat will take on Nou Srey Pov.
