Ben Askren (14-0) and Luis Santos (61-9-1) each tipped the scale at 170 pounds ahead of their welterweight title fight, which will headline ONE: Valor of Champions at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on Friday.
Askren will be looking to defend his title and cement his status as one of the best welterweights in the world.
The undefeated former U.S. Olympian and NCAA Division One champion stated, “Luis Santos is not going to take the ONE welterweight world championship from me. I’m going to walk across the cage, take him down and beat him up, and there’s nothing he can do to stop me.”
One late change to the card sees Bashir Ahmad (3-1) replace Shannon Wiratchai, who pulled out at the last minute citing an eye infection. He will be facing Amir Khan (2-1) in a fight that is set for 150 pounds, with the Singaporean coming in one pound lighter than the Pakistani replacement.
The only fighter to miss weight was Geje Eustaquio (6-3). The Filipino flyweight was slightly over the flyweight limit, coming in at 125.9 pounds. His opponent, Anatpong Bunrad (4-1), came in slightly under, tipping the scale at 124.8 pounds.
In the co–main event, Mark Striegl (13-1) was comfortably under the bantamweight limit at 134.4 pounds, while opponent Casey Suire (5-1) was slightly heavier, weighing 134.7 pounds.
