Capitan’s coronation, Aoki’s triumphant return highlight ONE: Unbreakable

Capitan Petchyindee Academy wrapped up an amazing ONE: Unbreakable with his coronation as he snagged the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title from erstwhile titleholder Alaverdi “Babyface Killer” Ramazanov on Friday, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

A body shot and a straight right to the head ended the night for the Russian as Capitan wildly celebrated, knowing that the victory was already his, even before the referee made it to the end of the ten count.one-unbreakable-aoki-def-nakashima Capitan's coronation, Aoki's triumphant return highlight ONE: Unbreakable Kickboxing Mixed Martial Arts News ONE Championship  - philippine sports news

Capitan’s coronation was a fitting ending to an already crazy night that saw the victorious return of former ONE Lightweight World Champion Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki, and of course, the emotional KO win for Filipino star Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang – both of which happened in style.

Aoki needed less than three minutes to finish grappler James Nakashima, as he caught the American in a standing neck crank to mark his successful return to The Home Of Martial Arts.

By submitting Nakashima, Aoki also set the record for most submissions in the promotion’s history.

The night opened the same way it ended – in explosive fashion.

Adiwang channelled all his frustrations from a turbulent 2020 into one punch to score a second-round KO win of Japanse Mixed Martial Arts Champion Namiki Kawahara.

It was an impressive outing for the Filipino, who just a few months ago tasted his first defeat in six years at the hands of another Japanese Mixed Martial Arts Champion, Hiroba Minowa.

This time he decided not to leave the bout in the hands of the judges, knocking out the Team Alpha Male representative with a clean left hook at the 2:02 mark of the second round.

But the impressive performances didn’t end there.

Meng Bo, the no. 2-ranked ONE women’s strawweight, scraped out a hard-earned win over Samara “Marituba” Santos in a solid back-and-forth match that may have earned her a spot in the upcoming ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix.

Rade Opacic also continued his run through ONE Super Series, dominating Bruno Susano in their heavyweight kickboxing clash.

Gadzhimurad Abdulaev left his mark in the blockbuster, finishing former ONE Welterweight World Champion Zebaztian “The Bandit” Kadestam at the 2:08 mark of the first round and etching his name in ONE’s history books for fastest submission in the promotion’s welterweight division.
