ONE 163: Akimoto vs. Petchtanong delivered action from start to finish inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium this past Saturday, November 19.

In the headliner, Petchtanong Petchfergus dethroned Hiroki Akimoto for the latter’s illustrious ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title.

Throughout five hard-fought rounds, Petchtanong used his step-in knees to narrowly defeat Akimoto via split decision. The achievement was the crowning jewel in Petchtanong’s illustrious striking career that spans over 400 fights. 

In the ONE Heavyweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Final, Roman Kryklia defeated Iranian juggernaut Iraj Azizpour and added the silver belt to his list of accolades.

The ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Champion survived an early scare to knock Azizpour out with a barrage of punches in the second round to win the tourney and end their trilogy on top.

Take a look at the highlights from ONE 163, and don’t forget to tune in to the organization’s next spectacle, ONE on Prime Video 5: De Ridder vs. Malykhin, on Friday, December 2.
