As a result of his tremendous finish of the renowned Nong-O, Scottish star Nico Carrillo has fans pumped up and saying, “What a phenom.”

The performance that Nico Carrillo displayed in his most recent bout under the ONE Championship banner left fans feeling very delighted.

The 21st of April was Carrillo’s debut with ONE Championship, and he won both of his first two promotional fights by knockout. At ONE Friday Fights 46, which took place on December 22, he competed for the third and final time in the calendar year. His opponent was Nong-O Hama, who had previously held the title of ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion.

Nong-O had just suffered a defeat to Jonathan Haggerty, which resulted in his losing the world title. As a result, the Thai great was even more driven to get back on track. Unfortunately for the former world champion, Carrillo had other plans and increased his marketability by knocking out his opponent in the second round.

A video of Carrillo’s reaction after punching out Nong-O was just uploaded to Instagram by ONE for public consumption. The following note was included in the caption at the bottom of the social media post:

A STAR HAS BEEN BORN ⭐️ Nico Carrillo has successfully knocked out the great Nong-O in Round 2! β„  @nicocarrillo_kotn
In the comment area of Carrillo’s Instagram account, Irish striker Sean Clancy and supporters expressed their admiration for him:

Without a doubt, it is a match between Nico and Haggerty.With the bravery of a warrior, that leg was on the verge of being broken, and then that elbow. It is a phenomenon. The general versus Nico will be an insane matchup. “Tic toc””There is no one who can stop Nico @yodchatri from making Carrillo versus Haggerty at o2 or Wembley for the belt. What an event that could/would be 🏴𠁧𠁒𠁣𠁿🏴𠁧𠁒𠁳🁣𠁿πŸ₯πŸ₯”

“The people are observing and believing,” the speaker said. my fellow King @nicocarrillo_kotn Carrillo, I wish you the best of luck. I have faith, and I will be waiting for you at the pinnacle of success. The legendary Sean Clancy of Ireland@onechampionship, you have a new rival for the number one spot.

He is destined to become a champion of the sport who is both tasteful and courteous. πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ ❀ Haggerty, in a showdown with you!!!”

What’s next for Nico Carrillo?

At ONE Fight Night 9, Jonathan Haggerty defeated Nong-O by way of a surprise knockout in the first round, so establishing himself as the new bantamweight Muay Thai world champion under the ONE organization.

Seven months later, Haggerty secured the vacant ONE bantamweight kickboxing world title by prevailing over Fabricio Andrade, who held the title of ONE bantamweight MMA world champion. This victory further cemented Haggerty’s legend.

In the present now, Haggerty is waiting to find out what ONE has in store for him. Following his victory against Nong-O at ONE Friday Fights 46, fans have expressed their desire for Nico Carrillo to be awarded a global shot at the bantamweight Muay Thai title. However, there has been no confirmation of this.

‘The General’ has also expressed his desire to compete in a number of superfights, one of which is an intriguing showdown versus Tawanchai, who is the world champion in the featherweight division of Muay Thai for ONE Championship. Therefore, it is possible that Carrillo needs to win another match against a leading contender.
