ONE Championship weigh-in results: Superbon not medically cleared yet for Prime Video 2, title fight in doubt

  • Featherweight Muay Thai champ fails to hit the scale on Thursday, with co-main event against Tayfun Ozcan in danger of being scrapped
  • Main event is official, after Angela Lee and Xiong Jingnan both make weight, but Jihin Radzuan will have to return on Friday

Saturday’s ONE Championship on Prime Video 2 card may be set to take a big hit, after Superbon did not give a sample or step on the scales at Thursday afternoon’s hydration tests and weigh-ins.

The champion’s featherweight Muay Thai title fight against Tayfun Ozcan – which was set to serve as the co-main event at Singapore Indoor Stadium – is now in danger of falling off the card, which will air in US prime time on Amazon’s streaming service on Friday night.

Superbon, who did not partake in interviews on Tuesday’s media day, has yet to be medically cleared for his fight.

The 32-year-old had already suffered a late change of opponent, after featherweight Grand Prix winner Chingiz Allazov withdrew injured this month.

Ozcan, who was originally set to fight Jamal Yusupov on the same card, passed his hydration test and made weight on Thursday.

Yusupov has also not been medically cleared. Both he and Superbon will have a final chance to weigh in and pass hydration in Friday’s window between 1pm and 4pm, pending medical clearance.

The main event for the card is official, however, after Angela Lee and Xiong Jingnan both passed hydration and made weight at the Parkroyal Hotel on Kitchener Road.


Strawweight champion Xiong let out a loud cheer after needing the curtain to make weight.

Atomweight queen Lee had no issues when she was the second fighter to the scale on Thursday, ahead of her bid to become a two-division champion.

First up was Anissa Meksen, who had no issues either, though her opponent Dongkongfah Banchamek will need to return on Friday after twice missing weight.

Martin Nguyen and Ilya Freymanov both initially came in a quarter of a pound heavy for their featherweight MMA fight, but they eventually returned and made weight before the end of Thursday’s three-hour window, which ran from 1pm to 4pm.

Mikey Musumeci appeared to have trouble producing a urine sample, taking more than two hours to come to the scale ahead of his submission grappling title fight against Cleber Sousa.


But the American had no trouble when he finally got there – unlike Sousa, who twice failed to make weight. But the Brazilian dramatically returned with one minute to go, and finally made weight.

The same could not be said for Dangkongfah, who ran to weigh in again but missed the deadline by seconds.


Jihin Radzuan was the other big name who failed to make weight. She came in heavy for her atomweight fight against No 1-ranked Stamp Fairtex, who had no problems.

The Malaysian returned to the scale after the end of Thursday’s window to check her progress, and it is believed she would have made weight had it been an official attempt.
