Kickboxing World Champion Marat Grigorian Signs With ONE

Aug 23, 2020

One of the top pound-for-pound kickboxers on the planet is coming to The Home Of Martial Arts.

Five-time Kickboxing World Champion Marat Grigorian put pen to paper and officially signed with ONE Championship on Saturday, 22 August.

Grigorian holds a phenomenal 63-11-1 (1 NC) professional record, with 36 of his career victories coming by way of knockout.

Throughout the course of his kickboxing career, the Armenian-Belgian striker has shared the ring with some of the biggest names in the sport. He has defeated the likes of “The Killer Kid” Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, Jomthong Chuwattana, and Jordann Pikeur.

Also, he knocked out the #2-ranked featherweight kickboxing contender, Superbon, in 29 seconds to become the 2017 Kunlun Fight World MAX Tournament Champion.

Now, he joins ONE Super Series’ extremely stacked featherweight kickboxing division, which includes the likes of Tayfun “Turbine” Ozcan, Davit Kiria, Jonay Risco, John Wayne “The Gunslinger” Parr, and “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex.

That weight class also includes the aforementioned Sitthichai and Superbon, as well as the division’s top-ranked contender, ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Champion Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan.

A date for Grigorian’s promotional debut has not been confirmed, but fans could see the 29-year-old superstar make his first appearance on the global stage later in 2020.
