ONE Championship has announced its headlining contests for the remainder of the “Fists Of Fury” series, and it will feature a heavyweight debut that should capture the attention of the mixed martial arts world.
Fists of Fury II & III Main Events Announced
On Friday, March 5, at ONE: Fists Of Fury II, Amir Aliakbari will make his long-awaited debut in the main event against unbeaten “Mighty Warrior” Kang Ji Won.
Kang is coming off an impressive come-from-behind performance at ONE: Unbreakable III against Iranian grappler Mehdi Barghi. The South Korean finished via TKO in the first round and will be looking to do the same against his latest Iranian foe.
Aliakbari brings in outstanding wrestling credentials. A former Greco-Roman World Champion, Aliakbari has set his sights on the ONE Heavyweight World Championship and Brandon “The Truth” Vera. With a distinguished background, the Iranian star hopes to jump-the-line after a big performance in Singapore.
Unbeaten Anatoly “Spartak” Malykhin takes the co-main event slot against Brazilian Alexandre “Bebezao” Machado.
Malykhin, much like Aliakbari, will be hoping to make an impressive showing in his ONE debut. If he can take out a former title challenger, the Russian will immediately insert himself into the title picture.
While heavyweight mixed martial artists take center stage at ONE: Fists Of Fury II, ONE Super Series athletes will shine under the bright lights at ONE: Fists Of Fury III on Friday, March 19.
ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion Regian “The Immortal” Eersel defends his crown against #5-ranked contender Islam Murtazaev in the main event. In the co-main event, ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion Janet “JT” Todd returns to the Muay Thai ranks to put her #2 ranking on-the-line against #4-ranked Alma Juniku.
Full card announcements have not been made, but if the trend of 2021 holds, fans can expect more fireworks to be set-off in Singapore. ONE has had a string of events with a multitude of finishes, and the four announced bouts for the follow-up “Fists Of Fury” series will likely continue that trend.
Big debuts, battles between contenders, and a World Title bout will certainly captivate any martial arts aficionado.
