3 World Title Fights, Aung La-Bigdash III Top ONE: FULL CIRCLE

Feb 4, 2022
ONE World Champions Reinier De Ridder and Kiamrian Abbasov

A trio of World Title matches and a long-awaited trilogy bout will headline the ultra-stacked ONE: FULL CIRCLE, which broadcasts live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday, 25 February.

As previously announced, two-division ONE World Champion Reinier “The Dutch Knight” de Ridder will put his middleweight crown on the line against ONE Welterweight World Champion Kiamrian “Brazen” Abbasov in the headline attraction.

And in the co-main events, the global fan base will finally witness a pair of World Title showdowns that have been years in the making.

Roman Kryklia and Murat Aygun headline ONE: NEXTGEN

In one of those bouts, ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Champion Roman Kryklia defends his gold against Murat “The Butcher” Aygun

The hard-hitting strikers were originally slated to throw down in December 2020, but COVID-19 health and safety protocols forced Kryklia to the sidelines. Although the match has since been rescheduled and delayed multiple times, the kickboxing giants are both cleared and ready to rock on 25 February.

Also, ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee’s belt is up for grabs against #1 contender Jamal “Kherow” Yusupov

These two were originally set to battle for the division’s inaugural gold in February 2020, but Yusupov had to withdraw due to injury. Now, the Russian is healed and riding some positive momentum, which he hopes will translate into World Title glory.

Fans will also see former middleweight titleholders Aung La “The Burmese Python” N Sang and Vitaly Bigdash collide for the third time.

When the two first met in January 2017, the mighty Russian beat Aung La N Sang via unanimous decision to retain his ONE Middleweight World Title. But in the rematch five months later, “The Burmese Python” defeated Bigdash to win the gold and become Myanmar’s first-ever World Champion in any sport.

On 25 February, they’ll settle their unfinished business in Singapore – and the winner will move closer to a chance at reclaiming the throne.
