DANNY Kingad will face another tough test as he gets to see action in ONE Championship's Big Bang on December 4 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The former world title contender from Team Lakay is booked against former ONE flyweight world champion Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan in the main card of the event headlined by reigning ONE light heavyweight kickboxing world champion Roman Kryklia of the Ukraine defending his title against Murat Aygun of Turkey and the Netherlands.

Currently ranked number 2 in the highly competitive flyweight division behind world champion Adrinao Moraes and flyweight world grand prix champion Demetrious Johnson, Kingad, who last saw action in January when he defeated Wei Xie, seeks to strengthen his hold in the division if he gets past Akhmetov.

Also in the fight card is #3-ranked featherweight contender Koyomi Matsushima of Japan taking on undefeated #5-ranked featherweight contender Garry Tonon of the United States.

Armenian-Belgian kickboxer Marat Grigorian and Russia's Ivan Kondratev make their ONE Super Series debuts in a featherweight kickboxing bout.

Iranian heavyweight Amir Aliakbari makes his highly-anticipated ONE debut against undefeated Russian Islam Abasov.

Rising star Ritu Phogat returns to action against the Philippines' Jomary Torres.
