Brandon Vera, ONE Championship’s heavyweight king, is finally making a return to the promotion’s circle this month.

The match was originally scheduled for Manila in May last year, before a continued surge in coronavirus infections and travel restrictions prompted the shelving of the event.

Vera (16-8), will be staking his near five-year reign against Bhullar (10-1), a wrestler with heavy hands whose tours of duty include the UFC and the Olympic Games.
