Unlike his older brother Giorgio Petrosyan, Armen will not take a win in Manila.
Congolese kickboxer Chris Ngimbi edged out Armen Petrosyan in the last of three Super Series bouts for ONE: Reign of Kings, Friday evening inside the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The WKA Muay Thai and It’s Showtime champion picked up a split decision win.
It was a close bout all throughout, as Ngimbi and Petrosyan were able to pick their spots. However, it was Ngimbi’s calmness even when under pressure that ultimately resulted in two judges favoring him.
Ngimbi raised his record to 50-21, while Petrosyan missed out on his 70th victory, dropping to 69-18.
Grizzled veteran Panicos Yusuf showcased his wealth of experience over Chinese upstart Han Zi Hao to take a unanimous decision win.
In the first Super Series bout of the evening, reigning Lumpinee Stadium 140-pound champion Chamuaktong Fightermuaythai thrashed Dutch fighter Brown Pinas, taking a lopsided unanimous decision win.
This is Fightermuaythai’s 145th win in 180 bouts. Pinas, on the other hand, fell to 25-9-1.
