Indian MMA star Rahul Raju is all set to fight Amir Khan at ONE: Reign of Dynasties on October 9, 2020.

We had reported about Rahul’s coach Arvind Lalwani expressing his interest in seeing Rahul fighting Amir Khan to which Amir had also expressed a positive response in one of our posts on Instagram. Amir then followed it up with the following words about Rahul in an interview with ONE Championship.

“Rahul is definitely an up-and-coming fighter and someone who I’ve kept my eye on for a while. I’m more creative with my strikes now. I often vary and change things up in every match, so he won’t know what’s coming. He is looking to prove that he belongs with the top lightweights in the division, and I will make it a tough test,” he said.

Amir comes on the back of a defeat against Kimihiro Eto to the fight when Rahul Raju has been on an impressive run lately having won his last two bouts in a dominating manner. In his last fight, Rahul dominated Furqan Cheema in an India vs. Pakistan showdown which pushed his case for getting big money fight.

The event will be headlined by the ONE Strawweight Muay-Thai World Title fight between champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and Josh Tonna. Sam-A Gaiyanghadao will be looking to continue his dominant run when Josh Tonna will have the opportunity to cause a huge upset.

Elsewhere, the card will also feature Reece McLaren who locks horns with Aleksi Toivonen in a high-profile Flyweight contest. Indian MMA star Roshan Mainam will also be on the card as he fights Liu Peng Shuai in a Flyweight contest.
