ONE Championship kicked off its 2021 schedule with a live bantamweight kickboxing title fight on Friday.
Alaverdi Ramazanov was squared up against Capitan Petchyindee Academy in the main event of ONE: Unbreakable in Kallang, Singapore. Ramazanov’s ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title was on the line, against a dangerous foe in the Thai native, who held the record for fastest knockout in ONE Championship history.
For those seeking their mixed martial arts fix, the Unbreakable card also had a handful of familiar names. Two former champions were in action on Friday: Shina Aoki faced off with former title challenger James Nakashima in the co-main event, for starters. The 37-year old from Japan had put together two wins (one outside the promotion) since losing his lightweight title to Christian Lee in 2019. Nakashima, meanwhile, looked bounce back from a loss to Kiamrian Abbasov for ONE’s welterweight title — and was dropping to lightweight to meet Aoki in the process.
The other ex-champ on the card, Zebaztian Kadestam, had a tough test as well in the form of Russia’s Gadzhimurad Abdulaev.
