Alma Juniku

ONE: Fists Of Fury III, a previously recorded event, will close out the "Fists Of Fury" event series from ONE Championship, and atop the card are two ONE Super Series bouts showcasing the top striking talent in the world.

In the co-main event, top atomweight Muay Thai contenders Alma Juniku and Janet Todd go head-to-head in a possible title eliminator as they eye a Muay Thai title shot later in 2021.

The young Aussie, Juniku, has displayed her aggressive style in her young ONE career. She continuously moves forward with an array of strikes to keep her opponents on their heels. She currently sits as the #4-ranked contender in the division.

But she will face another huge test against the reigning ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion.

Todd may be the kickboxing titleholder, but her roots are in Muay Thai. "J.T." is returning to the Muay Thai ranks to move from being the #2-ranked contender into the top spot so that she can look to become a two-sport World Champion in 2021. Adding Juniku's name to her list of victims would help do just that.

History awaits both women, and whoever is the top performer will inch closer to realizing their martial arts dreams on the global stage.

Before the bell rings, get primed for the Muay Thai co-main event with this video previewing the upcoming battle between the two top contenders.

ONE on TNT III gets underway on Wednesday, April 21, in primetime. And this time, the main event is a bantamweight slugfest with title implications.

American "Pretty Boy" Troy Worthen takes a main event slot to try and upend top-ranked bantamweight challenger John "Hands of Stone" Lineker as the watchful eyes of ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano Fernandes look on from afar.

Lineker has been outstanding since joining the promotion with a 2-0 record, and he is coming off a stellar performance against former World Champion Kevin Belingon. As the #1-ranked bantamweight contender, Lineker hopes to be next for a shot at the gold.

However, this is not a showcase match. Worthen poses significant challenges for the Brazilian.
