ONE Championship boss Chatri Sityodtong continued his war of words with K-1, taking another swipe at the Japanese kickboxing promotion on Saturday in Singapore.

Chatri caused a stir late last month by shooting down the possibility of co-promoting an event with K-1, saying “it’s a tiny organisation and the level is very low”.

His comments were criticised by K-1 producer Carlos Kikuta, who hinted ONE may now struggle to put on shows in Japan, where it has not been since two Tokyo cards in 2019.
