The card for ONE FC: 'Destiny of Warriors' at Stadium Negara on June 23rd continues to be released a fight at a time with Allamurad Karayev vs Roldan Sangcha-an the latest addition.
Karayev is currently ranked top 50 in the flyweight division (by fightmatrix.com) after running up a 9-0 record fighting exclusively in Malaysia, with all his wins coming by way if stoppage. ONE FC initially offered the fight to 10-0 Rey Docyogen but he will be sitting his architectural exams so Team Lakay proposed Sancha-an as an alternative.
Although the Filipino will be making his professional debut he has at least one amateur win (Linkenator's Note: Roldan has accumulated lots of amateur Sanshou fights, Sanda Fights, and several Amateur MMA Fights) under his belt and training with the likes of Eduard Folayang, Honorio Banario and Kevin Belingon, as well as Docyogen, he should be well prepared for his ONE FC debut.
Karayev, from Turkmenisan. is just 20 years old while his opponent is 21 meaning we could be looking at the future of the flyweight division in action. He is a member of the Muayfit camp in Kuala Lumpur and has lived in Malaysia for much of his adult life so should have strong support in the 10,200 capacity Stadium Negara.
