Giorgio Petrosyan, Nong-o Gaiyanghadao shine in Super Series debut


Italian kickboxer Georgio Petrosyan and Thai Nong-O Gaiyanghadao showed that they will be the stars that will carry the ONE Super Series to a bright future.

The hype behind of “The Doctor” proved to be justified as he thrilled the SM Mall of Asia Arena in outclassing Jo Nattawut in the co-main event of ONE: Heroes of Honor.

“I’m so happy to win. It’s always nice to win here in Manila. I said in an interview that it will be a very nice fight that I will show here in Manila and so, it has been,” said Petrosyan, who now owns an illustrious 96-2-2, 1NC record.

The two-time K-1 World Max Champion was too overwhelming for his Thai opponent as he was furious with his combinations all throughout the three-round bout.

“I hope you guys liked it,” he added.

Gaiyanghadao (256-54-1) figured in a height disadvantage against Pinca (99-24-2) as he was four centimeters shorter. The four-time Lumpinee Stadium World Champion though used this as an advantage, battering his Italian opponent’s legs with vicious leg kicks during the first two rounds.

In the first-ever Muay Thai bout held inside a ONE Championship ring, It’s Showtime 77-Max World Champion Cosmo “Good Boy” Alexandre (69-18-1) was able to stop four-time Caged Muay Thai Champion Elliot Compton (45-12) in just two rounds.
