WKN champ Federico Roma signs with ONE Championship

In his previous outing this past July in Morón, Buenos Aires, Roma made a victorious comeback, declaring the win by knockout in the second round against Darwin Saavedra of Uruguay. He rebounded from the third-round stoppage defeat suffered against Japanese kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa in March in Tokyo.

Federico Roma earned WKN World Super Bantamweight title in oriental kickboxing in September 2015. Battling it out in Zielona Gora, Poland he took the fourth-round TKO win against the defending champion, local star Tomasz Makowski.

In October 2017 “The Little Big Man” claimed his second WKN Gold in Muay Thai. Going through the ropes in his home country he headlined Simply the Best 15 Moreno, scoring a unanimous decision against Tristan Gaetano of France.

Roma joins the list of athletes representing WKN Top Team, which recently saw newly crowned European king Antonio Campoy signing with GLORY Kickboxing.

The details of Federico Roma’s debut in ONE Championship are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
