Early September ONE FC CEO Victor Cui announced that Ole Baguio Laursen, who won in March by split decision over Eduard Folayang, would fight against Zorababel Moreira for the ONE FC lightweight title.
Less than three weeks later, ONE FC announced that Kotetsu Boku will fight on 6 October against Moreira for the title. The ONE FC has not made a statement why Laursen was replaced by Boku.
“They are afraid that Laursen wins the title”
A very reliable source told R1N that Laursen don’t fight because there is ‘favoritism’ in the game. “They are afraid that Laursen wins the title. The owner of ONE FC is also the manager of Moreira. The organization put Laursen on hold, it is unclear whether he ever will come in action again,” said our source.
