Eduard Folayang gets new opponent for ONE Manila card
MANILA, Philippines—Eduard Folayang is up for a tough task in his redemption road when he takes on a new opponent in Pieter Buist in ONE: Fire and Fury.
Folayang was originally set to face Ahmed Mujtaba but Puist stepped up to take on the two-time lightweight champion, according to ONE.
Looking to build momentum for another run at the World lightweight title, Folayang (22-8) beat Tsogookhuu Amarsana via technical decision and this time he has to stop the rampaging Buist on Jan. 31 at Mall of Asia Arena.
Buist (14-4) is on a seven-fight winning streak and only one of those victories went to the judges with his unanimous decision win over Antonio Caruso.
Buist’s last loss was in 2016 and his winning streak across four promotions makes him one of the more dangerous opponents Folayang will face.
