Gustavo ‘El Gladiador’ Balart Going to War Against Ryuto ‘Dragon Boy’ Sawada!
Cuban Olympian and Pan-American gold medallist Gustavo ‘El Gladiador’ Balart will look to send a message to the ONE Championship Strawweight division this Friday July 30 by dispatching Japanese Jiu Jitsu ace Ryuto ‘Dragon Boy’ Sawada!
Crowd-pleasing fan favourite Balart will chase a statement victory in the form of one of the division’s top contenders – and will look to make the most of an intensive training camp at one of the world’s finest facilities in Coconut Creek, Florida’s American Top Team gymnasium.
Sawada presents a real submission threat, but getting past Balart’s credentialed wrestling should prove troublesome for the Japanese combatant; Gustavo, who has scored some of the most breath-taking slams in ONE Championship history, will look to dictate the pace and format of the fight en route to a career-best win.
Look for ‘El Gladiador’s’ scorching right hand to test the stand up capabilities of ‘Dragon Boy’ in what will almost certainly be a contender for Fight of the Night!
