The Battles That Led Chingiz Allazov To A Shot At Superbon Singha Mawynn’s World Title

Chingiz Allazov presses forward with a power punch at ONE X: Part I

Chingiz Allazov is gearing up for the biggest fight of his kickboxing career.

On Friday, January 13, the Azerbaijani-Belarusian knockout artist will challenge pound-for-pound king and reigning ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Champion Superbon Singha Mawynn for the gold in the main event of ONE on Prime Video 6.

The showdown, which takes place at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand, is undeniably one of the most anticipated kickboxing clashes in recent memory, thanks in large part to Allazov’s epic run through the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix.

In three unforgettable bouts, the 29-year-old striker blazed his way to the tournament’s prestigious silver belt and a shot at Superbon’s World Title.

As the two combatants finish their respective training camps, we take a look back at each of Allazov’s spectacular battles that led him to the ONE on Prime Video 6 main event.

Allazov Decimates Sana In Seconds

Allazov couldn’t have imagined a better performance in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix quarterfinals.

“Chinga” faced French-Algerian standout Samy “AK47” Sana at ONE: FIRST STRIKE in October 2021, and he came out of his corner like a man possessed. 

Unafraid of his opponent’s impressive reach advantage and proven power, Allazov wobbled Sana with a beautiful head kick in the opening seconds of the contest. He followed that up with a flurry of strikes, eventually crumbling his foe with a rib-crunching body shot.

Dazed and battered, the French-Algerian star was unable to continue.

With that dominant 39-second showing, Allazov advanced to the semifinals and put the rest of the Grand Prix participants on notice.

Allazov Makes Quick Work Of ‘Smokin’ Jo

This past January at ONE: ONLY THE BRAVE, Allazov squared off against world-renowned knockout artist “Smokin” Jo Nattawut in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix semifinals.

In a supreme display of confidence, “Chinga” wasted no time in going after the Thai superstar. He immediately blasted his rival with three and four-strike combinations that attacked the head, body, and legs.

Just over a minute into the action, Allazov rocked his rival with a guard-splitting uppercut and then threw a knee as he was falling down. Nattawut, being the veteran that he is, took the full eight-count to recover and continued to fight.

The Azerbaijani-Belarusian striker, however, kept the pressure at a fever pitch. He blitzed Nattawut with furious combinations and finally connected with a clean left cross to put him on the canvas for good.

With the electrifying first-round knockout, Allazov punched his ticket to the tournament finale – and he did it all in under two minutes.

Allazov Overwhelms And Batters Sitthichai

Allazov joined elite company when he met the legendary Sitthichai “Killer Kid” Sitsongpeenong in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Championship Final at ONE X: Part I this past March.

Holding an edge in both the speed and power departments, “Chinga” proved that he is one of the most offensively potent kickboxers on the planet.

Over the course of three blistering rounds, he showcased a dazzling array of versatile strikes – including thudding body punches, explosive spinning backfists, and whipping head kicks.

Sitthichai, a dangerous southpaw counter-striker, gamely took all that Allazov could dish out and even pressed the action in the final stanza. However, the Azerbaijani-Belarusian warrior’s pacing and unpredictability were simply too much, as he consistently out-struck his Thai rival.

Ultimately, Allazov earned the unanimous decision victory in arguably the biggest fight of his career. By doing so, he became just the fifth person to win the prestigious Grand Prix silver belt and was awarded a shot at Superbon’s gold.
