Brandon Vera to defend heavyweight belt against Mauro Cerilli at ONE: Conquest of Champions

ONE Championship announced today that heavyweight champion Brandon Vera (15-7-0, 1NC) will defend his title against new Italian challenger Mauro Cerilli (12-2-0) at Manila’s ONE: Conquest of Champions in November.

Since winning the belt in December 2015, Vera, 41, has only defended the belt once, in December 2016 with a first TKO win over Hideki Sekine. Vera explained that his absence, in a chat with BJPenn.com, was due to growing his movie career.

Meanwhile, Cerilli, 35, is the Cage Warriors heavyweight champion. He will be making his ONE debut at Conquest of Champions armed with a five fight win streak.
