ONE Fight Night 4 kicks off at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Saturday, 19 November, and in the main event, ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian Lee looks to make seismic history when he moves up a division to challenge Kiamrian Abbasov for the latter’s ONE Welterweight World Title.
Lee performed stunningly in his last outing at ONE 160, when he avenged his decision defeat to OK Rae Yoon in emphatic fashion, stopping the South Korean with knees in the second round to regain his lightweight crown.
“The Warrior” was previously riding a six-fight winning streak into his first meeting with OK, and he will look to regain that very same confidence in his battle with welterweight king Abbasov. Should the Singaporean succeed, he will have tackled a major feat in becoming a two-division ONE World Champion.
Christian’s latest adversary in Abbasov, however, is no easy task. The Russian standout is also riding a massive wave of momentum at welterweight, having won all four of his divisional contests with three of them coming by way of stoppage.
Abbasov recently chased similar glory up at middleweight. Despite coming up short, he is back home at welterweight and plans to remind Lee just how solid a threat he remains to be.
In the co-main event, Rodtang Jitmuangnon defends his ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Title against ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Champion Joseph Lasiri.
Also added to the fixture is former ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano Fernandes, who battles the Philippines’ Stephen Loman. Jonathan Haggerty also returns to action in his first bout at bantamweight when takes on Vladimir Kuzmin under Muay Thai rules.
Promotional veteran “Pretty Boy” Kwon Won Il locks horns with Mark Abelardo in bantamweight MMA action.
