Regian Eersel vs. Nieky Holzken | ONE: Full Fight | King Of The Ring | May 2019

Regian Eersel made history at ONE: ENTER THE DRAGON, becoming the first-ever ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion after an extraordinary five-round affair with living legend Nieky Holzken. Though Holzken’s striking stood up to Eersel in the first round, the younger Dutchman upped the ante in the later rounds, connecting with a series of slick combinations and big knees to turn the tide in his favor. By the fourth frame, Holzken’s output had noticeably slowed down, and Eersel capitalized with a massive knockdown via his signature flying knee. With both men emptying their gas tanks in the fifth and final round, the decision was left to the judges, who unanimously awarded the win and the inaugural lightweight kickboxing strap to “The Immortal.”
