Friday, October 25, 2013
HONORIO Banario gets a shot at redemption as he challenges ONE FC featherweight champion Koji Oishi in a rematch on ONE FC – “Moment of Truth” on Dec. 6 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Banario lost his ONE FC featherweight belt to Oishi in May after being stopped by the 36-year-old Japanese warrior in the second round of their scheduled five-round fight also at the same venue.
The 25-year-old Banario is 8-2, whiel Oishi, a veteran in Pancrase, is 24-9.
Also seeing action in the same card are Banario’s stablemates at Team Lakay – Eduard Folayang and Geje Eustaquio, whose opponents are yet to be determined.
Folayang, 12-4, looks to end his two-fight losing streak in the ONE FC cage.
