5 Facts About ONE: NEXTGEN II Kickboxing Phenom Dovydas Rimkus

Nov 7, 2021

Dovydas “Rimkenzo” Rimkus is one of the most exciting rising stars in the world of kickboxing.

The charismatic Lithuanian will bring his unique brand of martial arts entertainment to the Circle in his ONE Super Series debut against “Bamboo Sword” Zhang Chunyu at ONE: NEXTGEN II this Friday.

Learn more about “Rimkenzo” with these five facts ahead of his ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix alternate bout in Singapore. 

#1 He’s Undefeated

“Rimkenzo” has brought an unblemished 7-0 record to the global stage.

And though he’s still in the early stage of his career, the 22-year-old has set a great foundation with his perfect run – which includes four knockout victories.

However, he’ll be giving up experience to Zhang, who is 42-15-3.

#2 He’s A Crossover Star

The Kaunas native is a sensation in his native Lithuania, and he’s even broken out from the regular confines of the martial arts world. 

Rimkus is a true entertainer both inside and outside of competition, and this has endeared him to a wide audience. 

His profile got an even bigger boost when he took on a bodybuilder and influencer named Remigijus Virsila in a boxing bout and defeated the popular social media star via second-round stoppage. 

#3 He’s A Marketing Wiz

It’s clear that Rimkus knows how to market himself. With his outgoing personality and fighting prowess, he’s found a way to push himself to the masses. 

This isn’t by chance – the Fighterhouse representative is currently studying for a degree in marketing. And he’s undoubtedly putting his cutting-edge knowledge into practice by building his brand. 

#4 His Entrances Are Epic

“Rimkenzo” won’t be satisfied walking to the Circle in an unassuming manner. Instead, he’ll make an entrance to remember.

Whether that’s donning some gaudy attire or heading in with an entourage of clones, he starts entertaining even before he steps into the theater of battle. 

#5 He Likes To Meditate


For all of his extroverted tendencies, Rimkus prefers to look inward when he’s alone.

Some of his favorite pastimes are meditation and visualization, which he believes help him set and achieve goals in his combat career, while also strengthening his resolve.
