“You asked me. You got me. I got the contract in front of me, and I am signing this bad boy. I feel bad for you, son,” he said.

The 37-year-old Vera received an open challenge from Parry as the British kickboxer believes that the crowning of the inaugural ONE heavyweight champion should be decided by a 5-round encounter between him and the former Ultimate Fighting Championship superstar. (READ: ONE FC: Chi Lewis Parry calls out Brandon Vera)

Parry (6-0, 1 NC) is one of the few heavyweight prospects in the Asian mixed martial arts circuit today, finishing 6 of his last 7 professional outings by either knockout or submission.

However, Parry was last seen in action on ONE’s “War of Dragons” undercard in July 2014, when he thwarted Alain Ngalani with vicious elbows in the first round of their rematch.

Although he received numerous callouts from the Englishman, Vera denied Parry’s allegation that he is avoiding to square off with the 6-foot-9 behemoth.

“I am willing to fight anyone here in ONE Championship, including Chi Lewis Parry. I will suit up for a fight anytime and anywhere,” he told Rappler in April.

Vera (13-7, 1 NC) last competed in his December 2014 promotional debut, where he defeated Ukrainian heavyweight Igor Subora with a straight left and follow-up soccer kicks in the first round.

It is yet to be confirmed if the ONE heavyweight belt will be up for grabs in the much-awaited duel between Vera and Parry.

ONE is set to host a fight card dubbed “Spirit of Champions” at the 20,000-seater Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City in December. – Rappler.com
