ONE: Carlo Bumina-ang ekes out split decision win in Thailand


Carlo Bumina-ang narrowly outlasted Denis Andreev in a closely contested bout to secure a split decision victory at ONE Friday Fights 37, which took place at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

The fight was an intense showcase of determination by both fighters, leaving everything in the circle.

In the end, the up-and-coming Team Lakay fighter received the unanimous decision from two of the three judges, keeping his undefeated record intact after two matches.

In this match, Bumina-ang demonstrated a different aspect of his game by intensifying his ground game. This was evident in the first round when he executed a powerful takedown on Andreev and maintained control, attempting ground and pound.

Despite Bumina-ang’s efforts, Andreev proved to be a formidable opponent, delivering clean strikes during the second round as he engaged in a striking battle with Bumina-ang.

The third round was incredibly tight, with both fighters exchanging back-and-forth strikes. Andreev utilized his reach advantage with leg kicks, while Bumina-ang countered with a thunderous spinning back fist and a powerful right hook, resulting in an intense battle that lasted until the final bell.

Ultimately, Bumina-ang emerged victorious, marking a solid follow-up to his 52-second knockout win over Reza Saedi in his debut at ONE Friday Fights 27 last August.
