Ilias Ennahachi Retains ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title With Unanimous Decision Victory Over Superlek Kiatmoo9
Singapore, February 26, 2021: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), returned Friday with ONE: FISTS OF FURY.
The explosive card featured six compelling fights contested under mixed martial arts, kickboxing, and Muay Thai rules.
In the main event of the evening, reigning ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Champion Ilias Ennahachi retained his World Title with a victory over #2-ranked contender “The Kicking Machine” Superlek Kiatmoo9.
Ennahachi proved enigmatic in the first round, stifling Superlek with his movement and pinpoint counters.
The Thai fighter appeared flat-footed and a step behind Ennahachi the entire frame, as the defending champion forced him to retreat in every exchange.
Superlek, a multiple-time Muay Thai World Champion, did better with his kicks as the fight progressed.
But Ennahachi was simply the better man on this night, as he swarmed forward with confidence, staving off his Thai counterpart’s best offense.
After five hard-fought rounds, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Ennahachi.
ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Champion and current #1-ranked featherweight kickboxer Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan turned in another virtuoso performance, edging out former foe Davit Kiria after three rounds of action.
Petrosyan once again showcased his precision striking, as he attacked Kiria with diverse punching combinations and a thudding left kick to the body.
As Petrosyan grew more comfortable, he began to time Kiria with sharp counters.
Kiria put forth a valiant effort in trying to throw Petrosyan off his game, but the latter stuck with it and clinched the clear-cut unanimous decision victory.
Next, ONE Championship returns with ONE: FISTS OF FURY II, a previously recorded event scheduled for broadcast on Friday, 5 March.
In the main event, Iranian superstar and Greco-Roman Wrestling World Champion Amir Aliakbari makes his highly anticipated ONE Championship debut against Korean crusher Kang Ji Won, who is coming off a huge knockout win.
And in the co-main event, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Alexandre Machado takes on undefeated Russian wrestler Anatoly Malykhin.
